Tan, red, or something else?
Are you looking for an opinion on trousers, M? (Sorry if I'm being dense.)
It's for the lining. I vote for dark green if that's an option.
Ah, yes. I'm being dense. Thanks, Parker. Dark green sounds good.
navy. something chalky looking if possible.
Not tan. Please.
I'd vote dark brown or dark green.
Edit: see scruff.
If there are some light blue flecks in the tweed a lighter blue might look good, as well, if you'd like to contrast with the more muted ground of the tweed.
Talk to me about these (i.e. sell me some).
Thanks for the recs, guys. I'll probably ask for a pic w/ the colors you've suggested.
Sorry, SB, I should have mentioned it was about linings.
Why not tan, NOBD? That was the leader.
Hm, how shall I put it? Somewhat shiny/smooth tan (I'm assuming it's cupro or something similar) reminds me—just like the currently popular cream silk for PS's—of deflated white balloon material.
Btw: some off-white moleskin or corduroy trousers* would be great with that jacket (if you don't mind light colours like that in autumn/winter). It's the combination of texture (smooth) and colour (beige/yellowish white) that I don't like in the lining.
* or for instance light grey flannel; but that's a different type of colour.
I can't wait for summer to be over so I can break out my flannels and tweeds again.
