    So should I wear a belt to bring the pants up a little higher?

    new pants would be ideal

    the shoes go with the top yes

    the pants don't go with anything really, 2 different tones of brown isn't atrractive and brings bodily waste to mind, and they are far too baggy to wear with such a fitted top, I.E. we can see where the waist line/band is even though the shirt isn't tucked in

    i'm going on a quasi-date tonight. is this headpiece wearable (with a different outfit) to be super girly? or does it look ridiculous? [​IMG] (tshirt is madewell, btw)
    if it didn't fall in front of your face it would work well, but i'm guessing that's the point of it in general

    I think you should buy new pants

    I don't think thats necessary if he's happy with the general fit and feel. Though I'd suggest having them tapered below the knee to a slightly smaller opening, and also hemming to remove a break.

    I know we all love skinny/slim fits, but looser baggy fits can look good too. They're a linen pant, so they're meant to be airy. A slight change in the aesthetic and they'll still have that causal, airy look about them, but they'll appear more contemporary and less grandpa-ish.

    They fit fine in the waist, but I agree that the knee and below is pretty big and could be taken in. The pants are really old. The color is an olive with a tinge of brown.

    Definitely no. Then you'll really look like you walked out of a 1940s movie where baggy legs and high waists were the standards on trousers.

    +1, helpful style term, definitely deserves a spot in the dictionary

    Is that sarcasm? (The answer to your question is "yes" btw)

    Looks good as is. I wear my polos untucked, but your shirt looks fine tucked.

    [​IMG] What's the rise on those? They seem quite high. I'd hem them if I were you.
