    Make them tight and low-rise, then put them on a girl.

    just wear it as regular trousers. pairing it is very easy as white is a neutral color. it should be a summertime wardrobe stable.

    Boat shoes, maybe loafers (no socks either way) and a polo shirt.

    They're white jeans; let's not overthink this one.

    Don't kneel in the grass when your bunk in summer camp is waiting its turn to go horseback riding.

    Painfully learnt that one when I was about 8.

    Also learned the word Manure as in "Stella, he got manure on his knees".

    Phat Guido does white jeans very well, look for his posts in the WAYWT threads.

    Is this a picture from a summer party in the Hamptons or something? I never would have imagined someone "rocking out" wearing a Brooks Brothers Performance Polo.

    I love white jeans. We used to wear them in Westchester in the springtime in the late 60's. I wear them the exact same way today.

    -trim
    -blue chambray work shirt
    -pink OC BD
    -Clarks sand colored desert boots, sandy bucks, faded white sneakers (currently Jack Purcels)

    I will also rotate a blue OCBD, but usually with a madras or striped ribbon belt and a blue blazer
