Never wear those black shoes with those pants, please!
As for positive choices - I really like the light blue
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.
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.
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)
