    So I'm thinking of picking up some drawstring linen pants for casual days (both socially and at work)... I know I could wear some simple leather sandals with them... but does anyone have advice as to what sort of shoes I should match them with if sandals aren't appropriate? FYI the pants are something like these: http://www.bananarepublic.com/browse....splay=2 Advice is, as always, greatly appreciated.

    I might be wierd or practicing some sort of fashion faux pas... but I prefer slip ons when wearing linen pants. For the browns and creams I have a pair of Ferragamo loafers.

    For black pants, I wear an old pair of Cole Haan penny loafers (they're really light and thin).

    just my 2 cents....
