question for the sartorialists

Postby pittsoccer33 on Sat Oct 06, 2012 5:25 pm

i just got a few new blazers. one of them is in the blueish gray family and im having trouble pairng it with pants. cream would def work but i was hoping to do black. the jacket is really almost a denim color which makes me think black would be ok, almost the reverse of a black blazer and jeans. however i dont know any situation where a blue jacket and black pants is ok

Personally, I would only go with grey pants/charcoal if you are intent on a dark color pants. I would stay away from black.

I would not do black. Cream, khaki, gray, maybe a tannish brown.

Came to offer a woman's opinion and suggest brown. A rich chocolate brown would be nice, too.

One of my best friends is a personal stylist. I get all of my ideas from her. She's creative and usually right.

Also a female----and agree with Lt. Dish. Personally, I don't think anyone should wear cream colored pants. Period.

Definitely charcoal gray (think gray wool) or a deep brown.

Absolutely no bueno with the blue blazer/black pants.

I have a pair of pants that I would call cream that I quite like to wear. I guess they are in the family of "boating khaki" or "whitestone" -- I'm not sure precisely what color they are, but they are close to cream. I like to wear them with a light blue shirt with white collar and french cuffs, bow tie, and blue blazer (brown shoes + brown belt or dark blue suspenders).

I wouldn't mind having a seersucker suit.

Would that be sartorial or just plain dandy?

A male fashionista! 8-)

Dark indigo(dark blue) jeans would look good; I don't mind men wearing cream, linen colored pants.
I have a boss who wears navy blue suit jacket with black pants; guy makes enough to buy clothes. No, he isn't color blind. 8-)

The default pants color for wearing blue blazers is gray, although the traditional nautical-themed outfit with a blue blazer includes white or cream pants as described above my Kraftster. That includes brown shoes. In fact, I believe there are some rowing clubs in Britain that still require their members to wear those outfits for club social events. A straw boater hat would also be worn with that.

Personally, I have a number of blue blazers and sport coats and I’ve worn grey, blue, olive, and black pants with them. If I am violating some rule by wearing black pants with a blue coat, I’m not aware of it.

How about British khaki, 60sixx and Shyster?

columbia, I love seersucker and Madras for summer. Can't go wrong with pinstripe, either, in other seasons.

i like the chocolate idea very much. im going to walk down to heinz healy's today at lunch time and look for some chinos in that color. its darker than plain khaki but would work with the tones of the jacket better than black.

fancy party this friday - gotta look good 8-)

here is a picture of a coat about the same color (the guy on the right) - I'm not sure what color jeans would work well with it either

Sure, khaki-colored pants are regularly worn with blue blazers. Due to my big fat butt however, I try to stay away from light-colored pants, so I don’t wear that particular color combination. All my pants are dark.

I stay away from light-colored pants because I'm a walking (sitting, really) disaster. :lol: :lol: :lol:

pittsoccer, if the blazer is a heavier weight that can be good for colder weather, what are your thoughts on corduroy? Corduroy = comfy. A really nice corduroy adds texture and a slight sheen.

Pittsoccer33 I usually don't let lack of knowledge stop me from popping off about on a subject but your questions are way out of my league.
But if you ever want to dress Yinzer I can offer expert advice on which type/color Tractor Supply store jeans go with which plaid flannel or denim shirt and which boots match. Of course either black or dark tan carhart coats will work with these combinations.

This sounds great. I'd love to start rockin the bow tie at school. I just need to learn to tie one.
