to wear with a tie in a business environment
Solid or near solid black or navy blue is always safe. Something lighter like a tan or beige would work well too. Pants should be fairly subtle since the tweed jacket is the main attraction, IMHO.
+1. Depends a bit on the tweed though, grey tweed covers everything from Harris tweed to more refined things
cream / off white
Forget black pants. Should you remove your jacket you'll look like hospitality staff with black pants.
Study the colors in the tweed and choose a colour that compliments accordingly.
My first choice would be tan, navy blue or tope chinos.
Explore the world of textures and subtle patterns in the pants. Twill or whipcord are 2 suggestions.
You could also do rust, forest green or tope without worry. Any colour of jeans will do nicely as well.
Seriously? A grey SC is IMO only 2nd in matching versatility to a navy blue SC or blazer. Depending on the exact shade of grey the SC is, for the pants you could match with shades of browns, greens, blues, even a darker grey. And for any of these trouser combinations, a white or light-blue based shirt would work.
It depends a bit on the shade of gray ... but you should be able to find a suitable shade of most any color to go with it ... dark blue, tan, brown ...
Ideal slack color with this gray - http://www.styleforum.net/t/335096/lightbox/post/6116197/id/679009 ?
I was leaning towards a darker shade like navy or even black - doubt a brown would go well
I wouldn't wear tweed in a business environment.
Isn't tweed perceived as sort of country/casual? Is that why you'd leave it out of an office environment?
Uh... asking for a friend.
Sometimes I wear grey flannel trousers with a grey tweed jacket.......
I have same color jacket with herringbone pattern. I wear mine exclusively with navy blue trousers. I didn’t like the tan/beige combo. You may want to wear a cardigan or sweater vest under the jacket I have a burgundy v neck sweater . And I think it’s a good combo brings out a bit more color.
Charcoal grey if its a mid to light grey jacket. Really though you can wear almost anything. I would avoid beige and light browns myself though.
