    With blue, stone/beige chinos are always a winner. I personally love my white chinos with a navy blazer, especially sockless for a casual italian vibe.

    Personally I think a white/off-white-stone pair of chinos would work brilliantly with blue. Pastel shades, or vibrant maroons/burgundies would also work well, but I think it's hard to beat a white-chino/blue-blazer combination this summer.

    I'm not a massive fan of velvet personally, except maybe in the evening. Even then, it seems to have a more autumn/winter vibe to me.

    Then again, we're in June and I've worn both tweed and corduroy in the last two weeks!

    popped onto the next website yesterday and by chance they were showing the burgundy jacket in my size in stock So I immediately ordered it... I'm looking for some grey trousers to go with this... would they need to be chinos? or would smart grey trousers look fine with it? As in I don't want it to look like a mismatched suit.

    So, I'm off to a wedding reception this weekend. It's a friend and work colleague, young cool people so not overly stuffy. Still, I have assembled an outfit and feel like a second, third, fourth opinion would be useful. Here it is:



    Holland Esq Jacket
    Reiss Pocket Square
    Primark Tie
    Topman Shirt
    D&G Trousers
    Botticelli loafers

    What do you guys think? Is the jacket ok with the trousers, or is there not enough contrast?

    Thanks in advance, FaBe man dem
    Theres a few things that i don't think work so well about that outfit.

    The trews don't look so fitted through the thigh which spoils the sleek look of a suit, also think they might be better in a darker black
    the collar on the shirt looks too small and looks a wee bit tight on the neck

    I think you have a build like me where your legs are short compared to the length of your torso so a more slender trouser worn a bit higher on the waist would have an elongating effect.

    A little late now, but the trouser fit was my concern with the outfit. The slim collar on the shirt was intentional to go with the skinny tie. I hadn't really straightened it or ironed and starched the collar when I took this pic- that was done on the day.

    They are slightly drop-crotch trousers, so not ideal for wearing with a smart outfit, but were a preferred option to chinos for this particular event. The trousers are more casual / smart-casual, but did the job, as I received numerous complements from people and was told I looked very dapper. I did wear the trousers higher on the day than in the pic though.

    If anything I would have liked a lighter trouser, something like the ones posted above.

    I always wear my trousers quite low; it's just part of my personal style, which is rooted in hip-hop / skater days of my youth.

    Thanks for the (belated) input though
