    Unbelievable, how do you manage to pull this one out of your hat just like that?! My hat -- definitely empty of gorgeous women in madras -- off to you, Sir!

    (Yes, for this and other reasons this thread deserves to be bumped - do not deny it!)

    Patterned pants come and go. In a few years you will regret having photos of yourself wearing them. The exception will be a fine houndstooth linen or madras plaid pants for summer fun.

    Going by your confused emoticon, it looks like they are a no-go...

    I expect this will be true of brightly colored trou as well, a fad that seems to be on its way out.

    I like patterned trou that effectively resolve to solid. Fine herringbone, for example. But I almost never wear them.

    How about textured pants (separates) like a subtle glen check or a herringbone? Do the same rules apply i.e. they look like orphaned pants?

    I would call those patterns, not textures. I would say subtle glen check looks more like a suit than herringbone. Herringbone odd trousers are not at all uncommon.
