    I'm having trouble finding a suitable blazer color that would go nicely with this wool/linen blend trousers. I tried pairing a navy blazer with it but something just seemed a bit off. Any advice/pictures would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Navy should work fine. I have a linen pair in a similar color

    You probably want a "dustier" navy or blue, if that makes sense. Something that isn't too saturated.

    Dark green/olive will look very good. So would brown (noticeable darker or lighter than the jacket) . Easiest (to find) would probably be a fawn/camel/tan jacket.

    I think that brown or grey (either lighter or darker) blazer could work here too.

    :nodding: Darker/unsaturated green for sure. And I think navy is fine too. These trous are a wool/silk/linen blend but close to the same color.
