    They're not particularly hard to wear well.

    Wear them with a light blue shirt, loafers or similar casual shoes (suede's a good option) and a sports jacket in a flat colour (navy never fails). It's a very common in Northern Italy as a casual but elegant look.

    It helps if you're tall and slim, but that applies to most clothing anyway.

    "Charge this to my card, my good man"

    Very nice, a paddock style buttoning stance as well as hacking ticket pocket and a throat button closure.

    I lol'd. EDIT: Now that I look closer, is he actually holding a credit card??? --- Back to the OP, I like white jeans with any very brightly colored polo shirt and tan suede shoes in the summer.

    Hey guys, what are the do's and don't of white jeans? And before someone says "don't: wear white jeans" I already thought of that [​IMG]

    You could take up polo.

    I'm pretty sure its a subway ticket or a ticket of some kind. Either that, or he's a full grown midget who takes impeccable care of his skin.

    Didn't James Bond sport a pair in a few scenes in QoS?

    Wear them like you'd wear a pair of white/khaki trousers, both in terms of outfit composition, and fit.

    Agree. I can't pull off white jeans myself though. Just can't.

    I have no idea. It's a bigger picture but I cropped it and blew it up a little bit to see the details better. He is, however, my sartorial hero.

    Bond's wearing Levi's Sta-Prest in a bone/ ivory color. Not white. I thought it looked like he was wearing dark brown suede Desert Boots with them.

    I actually prefer the very light bone/cream color jeans to pure white.

    If most people would say they are white at first glance, then come back to realize that they're the very light cream color when compared to bleach white... I know I've found my perfect "white" jeans.
