I don't get this dislike of blue pants. Heavy navy blue corduroys (a bit worn, not shiny) or jeans may look great with a brown tweed jacket.

Black and dark navy are increasingly popular with middle-aged men because these men are (a) more vain and more concerned with their bodily appearance than previous generations of men. (b) The standards of male beauty have been revised into the teenage years. Hairy-chested men such as Lyle Waggoner were icons of male health and virility as recently as 30 years ago. Today men compare their bodies to those of bare-chested college boys. This is especially tough since (c) middle-aged men are much more overweight, on average, than they were 30 years ago. Black and dark navy come into desire because if men have learned one thing from women, it's that (d) black and dark navy are slimming.

Vanity + youthful ideal + prevalence of obesity + perception that dark is slimming = growing popularity of very dark clothing.

Even the NFL teams have trended away from kelly green and toward black in the last ten years. Middle-aged football fans prefer the solid black jerseys and jackets to the same in brighter colors.

In the future, we'll all be dressed like in Star Trek. Only, in black instead of yellow and red.

Nothing wrong, except rampant i-gent-ism. I think there's some folks having flashbacks to the nasty blue serge polyester slacks of their youth.
