    Probably a special flower thread, but I'll ask anyways. I lost the pants to go with my linen suit so I only have the blazer. I have a summer wedding to attend in june. It's a low key, outdoor wedding in cottage country. Wondering what color pants would go best with a mid-charcoal linen blazer (like below). Navy? light grey? dark charcoal? I was thinking of pairing with white shirt, navy knit tie and mid/dark brown wingtips. [​IMG]

    If this is your only option for a jacket, then do a dark charcoal grey or dark forest green.
    Either of these options allows for black shoes. Dark blue pants will make you look like a security guard.
    If you appear in any photos, make sure someone is standing in front of you so you'll only show from the waist up.

    Cream. The navy tie will work well, you could also do a madras.

    No, scratch that. I was just trying to stir it up a bit.

    A cream linen would be nice.

    That's a good looking blazer. I'd definitely have such a thing hanging off of me.

    Blue shirt, cream pants
    That's exactly what I do when I see a really nice blue shirt.

    The jacket color appears pretty dark grey on my monitor. It appears to have a nice cut to it. A shame on losing the trousers.

    The suggestions of the cream colored linen is great. However, I'd only do that if an afternoon or very casual wedding.

    Something in linen and a light grey or pale blue could work better for the evening.

    Black, charcoal, navy, or white trousers. Red, if you dare.
