    Linen Trousers: Light Grey Vs. White? And the winner is?

    I can see white at a resort but what about light grey in a metropolitan environment.

    Both. However, I prefer a more "natural" light linen color than bright white. Light grey is about my favorite color.

    Question: How come so many posts along the lines of "is X better than Y"??

    If it's a cage match where only one can emerge victorious, my money's on white.

    Both. Linen is too great in the summer to confine to just one pair. Wear the grey ones when the white are dirty--which will be just about instantly.

    In fact, I'm wearing a pair of olive Incotex linen trousers right now I bought from SF member Maxten4. They're the perfect thing for a beautiful Friday afternoon in Vancouver.
