    I'd like to get some white pants for daily use in the summer. I've never had white pants before, so I'm not sure if a cotton denim is best to get, or tailored "dress" pants. I'd like ones that will stay looking good, and can have potential stains removed with a Tide pen stain remover or something similar.

    Which white pants would be best to get for everyday use in the summer?

    What do you generally wear during the work week? How casual of a work setting are you in? Do you regularly wear blazers/sportscoats?

    I don't like the idea of "dressing up" white pants (though it definitely can be done). I generally wear white chinos with a casual button down or sports shirt. Something basic. To each his own though.

    I'll mostly wear these pants on weekends with a casual jacket and nice casual shoes.

    Do you buy white chinos, or off-white chinos?

    Denim probably wouldn't be very practical in the summer. White pants in general aren't practical and look bad on some body types.

    white jeans are pretty easy to wear. Goes with any colour.

    The best pair are the ones that fit you well and look good. i.e. the answer is to go shopping, try some on and buy the ones you like.

    White doesn't go with white, actually, unless it's a white party or a uniform.

    ...that kinda goes without saying though, doesn't it?
