    I am hosting a Christmas party along with my male roommate and two of our girl friends. We should get an attendance of ~75 people.

    Since we are the hosts we thought it'd be fun to all wear coordinating red pants. I'll most likely pair mine with a blazer, pocket square, and tie.

    Anyhow, where would you guys recommend that us guys look for affordable red pants? We are not likely to wear that much at all after the party so we don't want to spend more than $50-$60/pair.

    The one place I know that does have them is Bonobos but they are $88 which is too much for something I'll probably wear once. Thanks for reccomendations!

    Something like this:

    brooks brothers/jcrew on sale. Gap possibly. But do you really think that it;s a good ides for you and your roomate to wear the same pants at the same time?

    As long as they take them off of each other later I see no problem with it. :satisfied: :fence:

    Brooks or Lands End would be the best bet.

    Although I just checked and it looks like it's sold out in most practical sizes. I am a 32/30 and they don't have that size. :(

    +1. The obvious solution is to buy a more expensive pair then wear them the rest of year as well, instead of just for Christmas.

    Wow, thsi thread is a blast from the past. I'm glad we never followed through with the red pants idea and my sartorial tastes have matured since then!
