    They were a impulse buy, and I thought I would wear them in lieu of khaki pants with a sport coat this spring.

    I normally wear white shirts, but I feel this will be to bright, and a tie would not break up the mono tone enough if I ever take the jacket off. The obvious solution is to wear one of my light purple or blue shirts, but I thought I'd play around and see if I could still get away with a white shirt with the use of a light weight sweater vest, but I'm just not sure.

    I'm visiting friends in Florida in a few weeks and would like to be confident packing them.

    Suggestions?

    Yeah, don't wear a white shirt unless you're planning on a sweater too. What I like is white jeans with a light blue shirt and grey or khaki sport coat. A bit boring, but whatever. Navy and white is too nautical for a landlubber like me.

    They are light cotton trousers. I only were jean's when I'm doing some sort of outside work, so white jeans are out of the question for me lol.

    I love white pants and i wear them with any colorful shirt. Also works great with a seersucker jacket. I even wear them with a brown corduroy jacket now and then. You can wear flips with them or boat shoes or desert boots or canvas shoes. White pants are playful and refreshing.

    Hope the pants have good lining and pockets in the back or else your dark color shirt will show under your light white cotton if you tuck in your shirt.

    Get them tailored so that they aren't too long.

    Get light colored or white socks

    Wear with light colored suede shoes

    Blue shirt

    Get a tan

    Don't wear white tightie whities, wear grey briefs or freeball it.

    Get a tan "Or apply self Tan product"

    Don't wear white tightie whities, wear grey briefs or freeball it. Just be careful when pulling the zipper up in freeball case.


    + 1 great advice. Im no fan of white trousers, but in this setting, it looks quite decent.

    You can wear flips with them .

    just because you can doesnt mean you should. The only time a man is ever able to wear flip flops is when the are ON the beach. not near, not close, not on the way to ...but ON THE BEACH.

    I agree on the desert boots though. A brown suede with white pants looks great.

    High contrast looks in winter (not really applicable with light cotton versions like yours though), bright colors in summer. Bright polos, sport shirts...

    When I slouch it up for the summer I go whole hog. My flipflops make their way waaaayyyy off the beach.

    Off white are awesome! Just wear a pink or red shirt with a light blue sport coat. Or without a sport coat. Or do a light blue shirt and a gray sport coat. Possibilities are endless. The only problem is that they get dirty very fast. You have to think about where you're going before even considering putting them on.
