It's definitely a lighter shade of brown so is there anything I should avoid wearing them with? Can they go with a dark navy suit, light grey suit, and dressed down as far as dark denim with a sport coat?

So my dad shows up today with a leather bag and it seems cool and in good shape. My question is if this bag was for a man or woman ?

Hello I am Jay H. from South Florida. I am interested in learning about excellent work / dress garments that I can purchase locally. I have been wearing Swiss and Italian Zegna. I have a good tailor however good canvassed suits and sport coats are increasingly difficult to find. Zegna suits are now 2495 to 2895 USD. Also Neiman Marcus only carries the slim Milano series and I need Roma. I am learning more about what a proper fit looks like and jacket construction however I am finding it difficult to find new items to purchase. Any advice would be appreciated.

I might pick up a khaki field jacket, which I think would look great with the boots and navy chinos, but I'm just wondering if I'll need it.

You don't need to think too hard about matching the color of your shoes with your jacket. I think those would be fine together. In general, you would try to match browns with browns, black with black, but it's just not a big deal and nothing that would wreck one particular day's outfit.

How high do you wear your dress pants?

post #16973 of 29352
From low rise - around the hips to slightly higher rise - about 1/2 inch below natural waist.

I think it depends on the rise of the pants, but I typically wear them around my natural waist (navel).

I think it depends on your preferences. In the last 3 years this color has been worn with just about everything except black suits. A style that has made its way even into very conservative workplaces. If you are a modern dresser you should be able to pull it off. Especially with the light gray (as long as its not a super light gray with black mix)
You should not wear them to a job interview or very formal occasion. But when you already have the job and are at less formal events but prefer wearing a suit or dress pants you can definitely do it.

because, it is so since decades. why lower your standards, when they are already lowered by the society? after all, this is styleforum. capiche?

THIS ^^

I have several pairs of chinos and dress pants from "before" that look like MC Hammer pants on me. On the other hand, I purchased 6 suits and a Tuxedo from a member on the other forum - all are pleated. They all look fantastic because the cut works for me and I'm wearing them properly. I think bad looking pleats are usually a COMBINATION of poor cut/fit and the wearer wearing them below where they're supposed to be worn. When someone tells me their pants are "too baggy in the crotch," it usually means they're wearing pants that were MEANT to be worn at or near the natural waist. . . .down around their hips.

Is there some part of that you find difficult to understand?

Seems like one of those "If you have to ask..." kind of questions.

Ah, okay. I was worried about the orange hued leather clashing with the brown hue of the jacket, but I'm glad that it won't be an issue. Thanks!
