    I purchased three linen jackets over the weekend, tan, blue, and red. Not sure if I can pull it off yet. I guess I will have to wait for it to arrive to see.

    Obviously not with red jeans though.

    Who say that jeans have to be blue or black?

    Isn't Contract (in regards to people) the difference between skin tone and hair color?

    Wouldn't that make black people, low contract? Since they tend to a have dark colored hair as well?


    It depends how black they are...[​IMG]

    I was talking about white caucasians guys like me and also black in general..

    What the hell is happening to me?! I am coveting red pants now, after looking through this thread and the milano challenge.

    oooh I love my red jeans. Personally, I like to pair it with a grey casual sweater, or, if I'm feeling very high contrast, with a white shirt and green loafers. [​IMG]

    have fun with it!

    Red trousers, yes. Red jeans... not so sure.
    I think that's what I meant! [​IMG]

    Although an old thread, as I was searching myself I thought Id add this for those searching in the future..

    Just purchased some Borrelli red jeans.. amazing quality. They cannot even be described as jeans as most know it. The denim is incredibly supple and soft. So soft I am concerned how they will wear..

    Anyway...where is SPRING?!

    I am eyeing a rich violet Kiton myself..great colors to tame. I enjoy it.

    One would be surprised when properly balanced and toned down with other colors how they can be tamed so well.

    It's fun...but they just don't work without SUNSHINE !!

    ...dark and raining daily..I can't take it anymore!
    I enjoy northern europe and the UK, but know I could never live there for this simple reason.

    ...but I digress.

    No but there is no reason why you should not - witness they are made!

    Occasion determines their appropriateness.

    Very true...

    Black guys look great in red trousers...

    I personally find the old look pompous and ridiculous .
