    Not often out of the closet these trousers, seems like difficult to match lately. Once it was easier. Just like black shoes; once loved - then ambivalence entered the relationship. But here we go:

    Have myself a pair of yellow Peccary like yours, from Sermoneta - Rome. With cashmere lining. Quite nice. Have to brush the dust off them as the winternights approach.

    I think the top block is pretty 'country-casual' given the nature of the jacket cloth and tie. the only thing conservative are the colors and the shirt material. Cords, cut like a dress trouser, are very acceptable and would like nice with your outfit. Perhaps olive or navy or aubergine or any number of other possibilities.

    People have this odd aversion to pleats because they don't understand them and think that they just make people look fat and that they are old-school.

    Pleats can be extremely flattering on anyone if the trousers are cut well...and look especially great on trousers with a high-rise. I would recommend trying a double pleat on your next pair of trousers. Single is acceptable...but double is much preferred.

    The colourful hank seems out of place in such an austere outfit, @sugarbutch...

    I'm sure this yellow peccary will get a wonderful patina with the time. I don't know Sermoneta, my two favorites gloves makers are Omega and Merola.

    Syc, I know different angles and poses always make a fit look different, but in the first shot everything looks kinda baggy and shapeless. Angle of the last shot is better but still appears to be a lot of extra fabric. It's a Havana, yes? Did you size up or anything?

    Suit looks great, and I like the shirt and tie colors with it but ... is that a wool tie with a linen suit?

    AS, I picked up that jacket's brother in a heavy green melange flannel on eBay this week. Never thought I'd like the sack cut, but it turns out I'm a huge fan.
