How about a lime green slim YSL shirt from Hedi Slimane's era with white aviators, and a pair of burgundy socks with Sergio Rossi pointed loafers in a black patent leather.

Boy, you'd get shot wearing that in my 'hood. (this would have more relevance if you watch 'Aqua Teen Hunger Force'...ok, so I substituted 'wearing' for 'listening to'...anyway, back to topic) Well, maybe not shot, but at least you'd get some stares wearing that in the city I live. Unfortunately, most people here aren't as fashion-forward as NY or LA, so everything that is the least bit out of the ordinary would cause (negative) attention. Even the other day when I wore a leaf green dress shirt untucked with light beige cotton/linen slacks, and a pair of brown leather sandals, I was getting quite a few stares at Target.

That sounds like a perfectly normal, if in my opinion somewhat conservative, ensemble. I bet over there Versace would be regarded as a blasphemy. Especially some of their silk shirts, etc. from the Donatella designed couture lines.

They were just trying to figure out which celebrity was in town, and why he's in their Target.

Labelking, Yes, I thought the outfit was fairly conservative, even though the shirt was quite bright. I don't think the fact that I got some looks came from the fact that the outfit was 'bold', but moreso that it was 'dressy' (at least for walking around Target). It's a real shame when I can't even wear nicer slacks for no reason. Even if I wear the look I mentioned - flat front pants, untucked dress shirt, leather shoes - my friends and family will ask what I'm so dressed up for. I know it's not their intent to be snide, but it does make one self-conscious when he hears that. I think that most Versace silk shirts would stand out like a sore thumb. However, I was at the State Fair yesterday (don't worry, I'm not a hick), and I saw a man in slim-cut black trousers, sleek loafers, and a Versace baroque style shirt in golds and blues. It was a bold shirt, but the outfit looked well put-together.

Sorry to bump a REAAALLLY old thread, but I just picked up a pair today and have absolutely no idea what to wear with it. I've never had color issues before, wear yellow pants with no problem matching, yet seem to be lost here. I had the idea of navy in the store, but don't want to limit myself to solely one outfit, so any ideas would be welcome.

Thanks!

Nice pants, with great details. Any advice on what to wear with these pants? I tried a white high-quality dress shirt with shorter shirt tails that looks nice untucked - it would be a good look for South Beach, but would look far out of place in Wisconsin. It seems like all the shirts I pair with these pants makes the outfit look very effeminate. How come guys can pull off a light blue shirt easily, but it's so hard with pants??? Please make a few suggestions.

Also, one of the other pairs of pants is a darker tan - very nice as well. The pants fit perfect through the leg and at the waist, but the bottom is quite tapered - to the point that it kind of wraps around my ankle and reminds me of jeans from the 80's. I would love to wear these pants, but prefer a little more coverage for my shoe. It wouldn't be so bad if I wore 6.5's or something, but I'm an 11.5 so these pants make my feet look monsterous. Any advice, once again?


nice.
glad this topic came up.

i bought a pair of sky blue superfine wool pants from Lance last year and they are very rad. forward double pleats but at the same time slimming. but very summery in fabric but very fine.

i stil havent found a way to incorporate it into a SC type of outfit, but i would say a houndstooth grey jacket?

but i would say better to wear it just with a polo or a v neck shirt. dark navy blue would work.

those are cotton trousers though? they are much more versatile than mine.

mine are sky blue/baby blue worsted wool trousers. double pleated. they are not versatile at all. but in and of themselves, they are very beautiful
