I'll be honest I've never purchased a pair of slacks, in the past I've gone for Khakis. I'm looking for entry level work, tech support etc.. and want to dress to impress this time around. I know I should just head to the department stores and look around but I just wanted to get some suggestions first. - Pleats, or no pleats? I just lost 140 pounds, and I know before pleats where not flattering when I was fat. Right now I'm 170 pounds 35" wasit - Brands Are there any relatively inexpensive brands that still look good? - Lastly color suggestions The shirt I have picked out is a grayish/blue Ike Behar (pic's below) should I go for black slacks and black shoes or what would you all suggest?
