valentinis these are pretty cool. i'm considering getting them, as i'm the only one in my general area of the state who would wear these. aharris, any tips on fit?

Very cool. I'd say go for it.

If you can pull it off (I know I can't), go for it. Jon.

You must be a bolder man than I am.

Those are some cool pants. I'm not sure I could pull them off, but my advice would be to either: 1) go full formal with them - they are suitable for a black tie. Just make sure there are no other accent pieces in your ensemble. or 2) Go completely casual with them. They would look good with a plain cream t-shirt, maybe split at the ankles for a bootcut effect (just like them darn kids) and some sneakers. Anything in between, and you might look a bit like you finished 3rd at the highland games.

Although I personally cannot stomach it on myself, I think they would go good with a brightly colored polo shirt. Orange, pink or green maybe.

I figurd these would be a love-it-or-hate-it item. I'm interested to see where the bidding will go...

Ah ... the Dre 3000 look. Personally, I think that's the only way one can wear them without looking like an ass, unless you're sufficiently old and suave enough to pull off smoking a pipe as well.

people who say they can't pull it off are fooling themselves. true story: when i started "wearing" clothes, i was a navy/black/olive only. nothing outside of that. dont' know what changed, but now i rarely go for those color combos, opting more for somethign that will get a double take or a comment. years ago i would say "no way would i, nor could i, wear that" but now i would easily. it's fun stuff, mainly b/c people are jealous, wishing they could wear something fun like that. you guys, go for it (but not this pair in case i decide in favor of)

I would be all over those if they were green and black plaid, and sufficiently cheap. Been looking for that for a while. The red is a little too christmas-y for me, but they are still really cool.

This is a classic plaid (must look through a swatchbook to find out which.) discostu, props to you. Don't let the drones make you boring.

I like them. Although, personally I think I'd wear them no more than once or twice a year -- to a Christmas party with friends (not clients/business.) and on Christmas morning. Thus, I'd pay $15 or $20 for them, but not more.

Actually, I can picture them with a black leather biker jacket & black leather Beatle boots; kind of a ska/punk thing.

I like my bootcut with sneakers thing more, but this will work as well. You could even have the leather jacket, cream tee, these rockin' pants, and sneakers. Ska/punk/hiphop anyone?

I'm reminded of old Woolrich hunting pants actually. I had a thick wool shirt jacket in almost the same plaid and a Viyella plaid in a similar but smaller plaid. I may have to bid on these to get a complete outift. On a serious note, I'd wear these in a heartbeat and not think twice about it.
