I am rebuilding a business casual wardrobe (I can’t wear ties to work!) and I just acquired a really nice pair of chocolate brown corduroy trousers from Isaia and I am seeking opinions on building an outfit around them.

All ideas and opinions are welcome.

Best,
Kevin

Start with a navy blazer and a lighter colored shirt. Since the pants are corduroy, the blazer should be something with some texture, like hopsack or tweed.

Thank you. I was concerned about mixing textures etc. I have a lighter brown Donegal tweed jacket that will provide some contrast. Would suede shoes or boots be going too far texture wise, or should I stick with smooth leather i.e. calfskin or shell?

Not sure how dark brown and light brown will look together. Try it and see. Suede or leather is up to you.
