...what about them?
Patterned pants come and go. In a few years you will regret having photos of yourself wearing them. The exception will be a fine houndstooth linen or madras plaid pants for summer fun.
Going by your confused emoticon, it looks like they are a no-go...
I expect this will be true of brightly colored trou as well, a fad that seems to be on its way out.
I like patterned trou that effectively resolve to solid. Fine herringbone, for example. But I almost never wear them.
How about textured pants (separates) like a subtle glen check or a herringbone? Do the same rules apply i.e. they look like orphaned pants?
And, I bumped a thread which has been inactive for over a year now...
I would call those patterns, not textures. I would say subtle glen check looks more like a suit than herringbone. Herringbone odd trousers are not at all uncommon.
Just noticed this thread. My contribution:
Separate names with a comma.
