I just purchased some trousers today, but I am second guessing the purchase now. Are they "in good taste" being a linen/wool blend 55/45% and pair well with navy or beige based odd jackets? They look slightly chunky on the model and he is a bit taller/slimmer than I am. I do need some more mid-grey pants and thought linen would be nice for spring/summer weather if it ever hits (live in Wisconsin), but now wondering if I would be better of getting a gabardine pair now and a flannel in the fall for more versatility.
Quite dandy-ish for Wisconsin, but I'd go for a slimmer model. Other than the fit, the material is good for summer wear. I love linen/wool blends. Maybe try some Lands' End next time? I haven't tried their tailored fit yet, but I know that the leg opening is 8", and that's neither too slim, nor too wide.
