Never wear those black shoes with those pants, please!

As for positive choices - I really like the light blue

A facial expression of deep shame.

 

Really, don't be silly.

An old-timely baseball uniform.

This is definitely one of those "if you have to ask..." situations.

This is a strange beast... It's like a Strand without the medallion on the toe. Even looks like it's on the same 5 last.

I don't know that I'd call it strange; it looks like a standard quarter-brogue. I find it strange that neither AE or Alden offers one.

A white OCBD, navy blazer, and penny loafers. It'd be a perfectly acceptable casual summer outfit. I've worn seersucker pants with white OCBD, navy blazer, and burgundy pennies, on a fair number of occasions, when outdoors in the summertime, in the daytime. (Bow tie, optional. And substituting dirty bucs or spectators for the pennies, or a pale pink shirt for the white one, are also possibilities.)

If you want to dress like someone who needs attention this is fine.  If you want to wear something that is classic and tasteful you'll need to tone it down a but.

 

 

Not clown shoes.  And not plain toe black bluchers.

I would stay away from dark shoes- too jarring.  Go for lighter shades of brown or spectators, suede players, etc.  Summer classics. 

 

The last pair of pants are the only one that I would wear- they appear to be seersucker which is again, a summer classic.  I'd wear a light cotton or cotton linen mix solid shirt, either in white or some non-obstructive color, sleeves rolled-up, open collar. 

 

Oh- and a belt. 

 

I lived in Seattle for a total of 7 years.  Not a mecca for the well dressed man. 

These pants, if paired well, will make you more stylish than 99.9% of the citizenry.

That was a softball, just hanging there...


I was going to say "a bag", but the seersucker might be workable.  Hard to tell from this picture.

What color and type of pants would go well with a black velvet blazer for a black tie event?

No. It does not meet the traditional standard of dress described as "black tie."

I suppose it would be better than a beige jacket, or jeans and a sweater. I suppose there are black tie inspired, or creative, post-modern black tie events where it'd be just swell. But ultimately, a blazer - whether black or not, velvet or not - is not black tie, by the most widely accepted meaning of the term.

Does this look like a 3 roll 2 to you? To me it does, but I really can't be sure---

But there are velvet dinner jackets.

 

Jamezism, tux pants. Black with a satin or grosgrain stripe down the side.

Hello. Im new to this forum. Been lurking around here some time, just registered. Just wondering what these folds at the bottom of the pants are called? I live in Scandinavia and I haven't seen a lot of suits pants with these here. (Im linking too a photo posted by upr_crust)
