    I have a brown/rust district check coat that looks great with navy trousers. I is baffled why they don't get more love. Probably b/c they can't be worn with the most common of all odd coats - the blazer.

    Grey or brown sport coats, even seer sucker.

    Agreed, I recently wore a seersucker jacket to a wedding, with blue trousers. Brown would also look good with navy.

    See? The very idea is so removed from your existence that it seems unreal to you.

    What on earth are you talking about? You really are a silly man.

    I have a chocolate brown sportcoat with a faint blue windowpane plaid that is one of my favorites. Looks great with blue pants and gets a lot of compliments.

    Go back to the Australian Members thread where you belong.

    If that is is supposed to intimidate me you failed miserably. I will not be replying to further provocation from you on this thread as I frankly have better things to do with my time than respond to your inane offerings.

    I'm still not sold on navy pants with a sport coat. Somehow I always think gray or tan look better.

    ^ navy pants might work with that, but it also might come off as too "outfit-y" since navy is so predominant in the pattern. I'd go with gray. Sounds boring, but I think it would look better.

    From the evidence presented in this thread, I hereby renounce the rule, "No navy odd trousers."

    Agree with you on this one.

    I have them in flannel, cotton canvas, and chinos. I like navy trousers for something to wear more casually, sort of like an alternative to jeans. Maybe with just a grey sweater or cardigan for example. But technically in terms of colour I think navy 'goes' with almost anything...

    Are "navy pants" the new "black suit"?

    Very hard to pair jackets with navy odd trousers. That's one reason they are unpopular around here.

    Indeed, I only wear my navy flannels in casual settings where jackets are not required. Looks pretty good with a camel or grey jumper and a Forestière or some such.

    My burgundy and purple jackets have worked very well with my navy trousers

    Otherwise, Master Classter offered the best evidence, thus far

    Browns go beautifully with blue trousers, in particular if your pants are not a fine business worsted weave I have seen a sand/beige SC go very well with navy herringbone pants. Accent with tan/chestnut. The hate on this forum for navy pants primarily stems from the influence of 2 people: [​IMG] and manton. And then you have all the johnny come latelys trying to prove their e-street cred to each other by trying to outdo each other in clothing fundamentalism.
