Help and opinions required please.

I recently purchased a pair of boots from Crockett and Jones Islay (see below pic - not my pic but I hope mine will look like this after some wear)
I'm now wondering what kind of trousers to buy to go with these. Top half will mostly be OCBD and often under Navy/Blue/Grey cashmere when it's colder.
Coat is mostly quilted or waxed Barbour jacket - navy, sage, olive.
I'm looking for something that will fit with how robust these boots are but want to remain looking on the smarter side of casual.
I'm considering;
Corduroy
Tweed
Flannel
Moleskin
Heavy chino.

So, what do you guys wear with this kind of footwear?

PS. I really didn't know where to post this so please move if there is a better place.

Everything you are considering is fine, I'd personally go for corduroy but the others are ok too. Just make sure it isn't one of those super slim pair with a tiny leg opening and you'll be ok.
