What to do with emerald green wool trousers?

Not one of the better choices I've made, especially as I had them made by my tailor.

All I can think of is let them rot in my wardrobe, use them for future fittings, and then donate them.

Damn, I love this idea. A blackwatch SC has been on my wish list for a while too.
Don't purchase things to help right bad purchases. That's a losing battle. I also don't think blackwatch would go well with these.

Your best bet is probably to just wear them without a jacket. Should be less jarring.

I'm one of those heathens that wears grey sportcoats, so if you were also raised by wolves, you could go that direction. Perhaps a light- to mid-brown sportcoat? I have a racing green sportcoat (darker, I think than your trousers, but not ridiculously so) and was just thinking about what trousers I pair with it pretty easily.

That was the intended idea. To wear with no jacket during summer time.

Didn't really end up happening, they mostly just sat there.

I should elaborate, I'm not buying a blackwatch plaid jacket to right this purchase. I've been meaning to get one down the road anyway.
Try pairing with a rich, dark brown sport coat.
Like this? (Not my picture). Hmm, not sure that would work much better.

I don't own one at the moment, but I'd wear one provided it was very textured. This would work great with tweeds, but the trouser colour and cloth scream summer.

No. A richer, more earth tone brown.

Green and brown work nice with one another.

Green also works with tan nicely, and I think it could look snazzy with dark charcoal of blank.

wear them. I have a pair of jeans in more or less that color.
I wear them occasionally. I never get negative comments
about them. That may of course be because people are polite.
On the other hand, it could be that I look great in anything.

It’s a classic fall color. Should pair well with other earth tones and autumnal colors.

Reminds me of a certain retailer who, every holiday season, offered green trousers with red mallards on them (or maybe green mallards on red). Anyone interested need only have waited until spring to scoop up a pair at 50% markdown.

Green corduroy trousers with red mallard embroideries would actually be wearable. Pair them with a Shetland sweater, oxford button-down, and some penny loafers.

But I think that color is hard to wear as wool trousers. Too emerald. Would be easier if they were olive like this
