    I was looking for a nice pair of odd trousers for summer, that I can wear with a pale blue linen shirt and corodovan penny loafers for a nice crisp casual look. I was wondering what you all tought of these trousers The only thing that gives me pause are the off-seam pockets. Wouldn't they look better with on-seam pockets?

    If it was my decision, the angled pockets would disqualify the purchase, especially for office wear.

    I have been debating bidding on those. I think the glen plaid may be what is deterring me and not the pockets.

    It really depends what look you're trying to achieve. The pants are traditional with a twist--the pocket detail is witty and lightens up the look. Is that what you're looking for, or do you want something a bit more classic looking?

    Hey Lance congrats on the Raiders. Great to see the General get back to the Sweet 16 where he belongs. You got a great shot at the Elite 8 as well.
