    I know there is a thread regarding what colours are best for chinois, however, ive used the search function many times and havnt managed to dig out that old thread. I was wondering who could recommend what the best colours would be for chinois and khaki pants, perferably wearing both nights out and at the office.

    I personally wear British Khaki, Khaki, or Brown. Wear what makes you feel comfortable.

    Wear what's appropriate and looks good on you. That could be the colors above. However, with a solid white shirt and no jacket, pants that are very light-colored or dark brown usually don't look right. Ditto dark brown pants with a solid white shirt and a black jacket (for evening wear). It's generally not a good idea to rely heavily on work clothing for social events.

    This has to be one of the dumbest posts ever.

    It's meant to help, not insult for mysterious reasons. [insert Rodney Dangerfield routine about treatment as compared to other industry people on the site]

    Chinois pants?

    My suggestion would be bright red and gold.
