I like flat-front, streety cords. Can often find a decent pair in a thrift store for $5.

I bought a pair of Abercrombie cords a few years ago that I still wear though I purchased them at a time when I thought I was a 32 waist (instead of a 29-30 waist) and their leg openings have suffered great damage since they are also too long for me.

Anyway Cords, and nice pair of tan trousers are a good start. YOucan move into White, Darker Brown, Grey later. Good brands JCrew and others if you look on the popular sites found on these boards (activeendeavors, stevenalan, shopjake, etc.)

For summer, I think linen pants or some kind of cargo in a light weight ripstop material are good. For colder weather I mostly stick to jeans.

Some might not consider twill jeans to be real jeans, but they're another alternative to denim. Also, you could try pants made from hemp.

Two lower-cost alternatives are Producer pants from Express Men or Slim-fit chinos from H&M. The Producers are a little baggier and come in black and khaki and probably pinstripe, and they'll probably run you about $60 but I bet you can find them on sale.
I got a pair of the H&M chinos for $25 and I love them, they have a really slim distinctive cut. However, they're currently out of commission because they shrank a half-inch in the wash and need to be let out. Also, for $25 you are not getting the best construction on earth, these pants will probably fall apart within a year of hard wear.
