    white or blue is the safe choice, i would think. even black could work, i guess.

    hmmm, i don't know about orange with blue.  

    when i played soccer as a kid back in the 80's, my team originally wore long sleeved, collared, orange jerseys (i believe with a single, white, horizontal stripe on the front) with blue shorts (of the short shorts version).  looking back, we all looked like idiots.

    I'm probably in the minority here, but I've always thought seersucker pants looked a bit odd when worn without the jacket. But maybe with leather sandals and a white shirt ...

    I would wear a Pink button down or polo. It is the hot color this season.
    And as for shoes, white or dirty bucks, cordovan penny loafers ( Alden cordovans of coarse. ) or black drivers. And it goes without saying but I will " No Socks". And yes, for you die hard prepsters, you can wear your coveted sperry's with the duck tape.

    Anything pale or pastel, pink would be my pick. Definitely not orange, unless it's like peach or something. Speaking of which... it's peach season. Time to gorge.

    I would do brown shoes with a pink dress shirt and a green tie and you will be looking good. I plan on getting a similair pair of pants and a matching jacket as well.

    For a casual look pair it with a polo knit.

    How did you get the pants hemmed? That's important.
