Need Advice on Dress Pants  

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

I have lost considerable weight over the past six months during which I decided to start dressing nicer and taking pride in the clothes I wear.  I have purchased quite a few shoes over the weight loss journey (mainly brown tones and a few black shoes) and am now looking to purchase 3 suits and 4 pairs of dress pants now that I have reached my target weight.  I am a professional salesperson in sunny Southern California and mainly wear dress pants with/without sport coats for work but occasionally will wear a suit to special meetings.  The sport coats I have recently purchased are brown and blue shades.

 

I am working with a custom tailor to make the suits and pants for me and the materials/colors they have readily available at reasonable prices are located below.  I have already decided on my 3 suits (charcoal, medium grey and navy blue) so I am good in that department.  Next up are the dress slacks.  Which materials/colors would you choose for a staple set of (4) dress pants?

 

Thanks in advance!

1,4,A and B, because lighter is typically better when pairing with a sport coat. You've got the right idea with tans and greys.

1, 4, A. Maybe 3 if you have jackets that can make it work.

@Heatmiser, they're all nice.  The only one I'm not crazy about is 3.  I would probably go A, B, 1, 2....in that order.

Thanks for the advice all.  I was thinking 1, 4, A & B as well.  However, I was thinking 1 & 4 may be to similar of a shade and instead go with one or the other and then #5.  Thoughts?

Now that I'm looking at these again I agree that 5 would be a good choice to replace one of those 2 similar tan ones.
