orange cords + blue shirt

If you see someone wearing this pair of cords with a light blue dress shirt on a weekend afternoon, what would you think?

Awesome look. I've seen these orange cords at RL, however they have a more elegant pair in what looks like a burnt orange color; easier to pull off the look in those.

I like orange and blue together in general but that particular example is kind of unappealing. Perhaps I should rephrase; I think that model looks nice, but I would never sport it myself.

I was seriously considering the above look, but perhaps a more gentle option would be to pair a light blue dress shirt with one of those faded orange-rust colored khakis from JCrew?

Gregory, You must have huge cojones. I'd say, unless you are hunting, those particular cords are a bit much. -Tom

It's a very Upper East Side look. In the summer you can substitue the orange for salmon colored chinos.

I don't know.... I like the idea of wearing a simple understated shirt with a pair of "expressive" pants. If you think about it, most of us have always kept our pants a solid color and expressed ourselves through our shirts.

Or a spokesman for the Florida orange juice council... Seriously, my brother has a similar pair he wears all the time. My butt is big enough already, thank you very much.

Note these choices are for NYC where black is the default color generally.
I've been noticing that people in NYC are wearing less and less black. The whole black look coincided with the Prada craze a few years ago. With the emergence of business casual, or "dressy casual" as it is now called, guys are moving toward more colorful shirts such as Thomas Pink. Candy stripes and checks are all over the place, and pink is no longer referred to as "gay." This look can be seen on all the ex-frat guys that are working professionals. As such, the pants Gregory posted, wouldn't look too out of place in NYC these days; however, they would be pushing the envelope, which is a good thing.

How much are they? And what size?

Finally, I know what to wear with these shoes:

If you're going to wear those pants with those shoes, you'll need to get the pants tailored showing an inch of ankle, and you can't wear socks.

Yeah, I don't know what in the hell to wear them with. I'm certainly not going to show bare ankle. They collect dust even though they are comfortable and look good. I have thought about antiquing them. What do you all think? Would antiquing them be possible or desirable?
