    Tan Brogues Trouser Pairing

    I recently purchased a pair of Grenson Stanley brogues in a tan colour and was wondering if you lovely people would be able to assist me in pairing them with the right trouser.

    I will be wearing them for work, I usually wear just a shirt and trousers, no suit unless I have a particularly important meeting. I normally opt for plain white slim fit shirts or checkered shirts (various colors - navy, black/white, burgundy/grey).

    I'm not too sure what color trousers work best with them and also who colour shirts would best compliment the trouser/shoe combo.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Think grey works best, but I mostly wear mine with chino's either red or stoney (not quite sand).

    The beauty about tan brogues is that they go with practically any colour you can think of. (Maybe apart from black, but all others are solid choices)

    Blue/navy, light grey and beige/stone/cream will all work well.

    I think you should post a picture of them just so others including myself could get a better understand of what colour they are and inspiration of what to pair them with.
    Also have you considered a waistcoat, just the waistcoat on its own?

    But yeah white or navy chinos will work well, but navy trousers are prefferable if you go down the more formal route, and if you want to dress them down further (than the chino route) you could go for black jeans.

    Sorry guys, I've been away on holiday so haven't had chance to read the replies. Thank you all for your help, I really appreciate it.

    Dark or light navy
    light grey (a personal favourite)
    Most shades of blue

    Or if you're feeling bold:
    burgundy
    bottle green

    I wear tan Loake brogues with burgundy cords and bottle green chinos (not at the same time, obviously). Looks excellent, but it can come off as a bit eccentric.

    My favourite combination is with a pair of slim fit, dark blue 511 Levi's, with turn up. Much like Loake's own promotion picture.

    Thank you all for your help, I've taken all comments on board. Unfortunately though, jeans are not an option for me at my place of work :-(
