    I have these pen stripe slacks that I'm finally able to fit in! Just don't know what to wear with them. I know a tucked in, solid buttoned up collared top w/ a tie would look nice, but I'm looking for something that would look good without having to be tucked in. Any suggestions?

    Do you mean pinstripe? If you lurk a bit more, you will find that most here don't wear pinstripe pants unless they are part of a pinstripe suit, as they will tend to look like orphaned suit pants. Check out this thread about patterned pants:

    Also, avoid wearing a tie without a jacket. As for an untucked shirt, I can't see this very casual look going well with (what I imagine to be) somewhat more formal pants.
