    I was wondering what you all would pair with houndstooth trousers.  I was thinking a pale blue linen shirt with shell cordovan laceups and matching belt. Any other ideas?

    pale blue linen would look nice, indeed.

    also you could go with a dark sweater - black, or one of the colors of the checks (looks like maroon and brown?).

    if you went with a black sweater you could have black shoes as well - with the right hem condition, maybe a monkstrap, maybe just a brogue of some sort.

    a chocolate brown jacket would look pretty good, especially with a light blue shirt. cashmere/wool, something soft and slightly 'fuzzy'.

    you could even do a lighter colored jacket, creme or light khaki - maybe with a black merino pullover or turtleneck. (dunno if that's a 'dated' look, but i like it anyway.)

    I'm specifically looking for a pair of odd trousers, flat front, preferably Incotex, size 36. Houndstooth fits the bill best, but anything else in a pattern that is in brownish tanish tones, I'm interested. Let me know...
