ok guys, I have one double cuff shirt, charles tyrwhitt (tails- tuck in) , and a single cuff shirt, with an extra wide collar from the hawes & curtis fashion range (shorter, perhaps wear untucked???) .

Im young and only just getting into real clothing and would like help choosing garments to wear with these shirts, they just dont look right to me with jeans.

Im in the UK and dont really want to spend more than £100 on an item.

Suggestions please...

Charcoal wool pants go with nearly everything. A grey suit is an obvious choice as well, but you said under 100 quid...

suit would be an obvious choice, but I was asking for suggestions on what to wear on my legs. Also I dont wear a suit to much.

Any particular style of trouser I should go for??

Slim, flat front, no cuffs. Incotex or Purple Label (on ebay, to keep your budget) come to mind.

Crockett and Jones on sale would be a good option. You could go anywhere from brogues to wholecuts.

RL purple lable cotton trousers look to be exactly what im after, slim, no pleats etc, great suggestion edward, thanks.

I have some very elegant camel jones's bootmaker lace ups, kinda pointy with a squared off toe, and some dark brown driving shoes also.

RL purple lable seems to be the missing link I needed, thanks very much edward.
