    Am I colour-blind or is his shirt a very very dark blue? If so, even better! The combination is so beautiful it’s an outrage!

    I find the zara white pants from last year great – they have a much better fabric then a regular jean and have a straight pant leg that flatters normal legs enormously.

    few days ago, i dressed a bullfighter in total white for a fashion production of a spanish newspaper. I chose a pair of Armani troussers, not exactly jeans but in white hard cotton. they were wonderful. i recommend you to buy them. they costs 120 euro aprox. not very much.
    best regards

    Yes the pants are great. However I like how the coat is the right length for his frame and its cut is exquisite. I’m now going out to find a high 3-button single breasted brown/tan coat, being in Sydney Australia this may take some time. Bugger it! I’ll just fly to Milan.

    I take my hat off to a man who carries off white trousers well! White trousers are challenging. They can so easily go from looking cool and hip to sad and … lukewarm!

    I am curious… what is the story behind the look of this gentleman’s pocket square? While I like the detail a pocket square adds, it almost looks like there are 2 separate fabrics. Quite distracting actually.

    I believe that he’s right handed and wearing his watch on the right, which I always do myself. Still, it’s strange to see others do it.

    A white pocket square with a casual linen jacket; I like it. Is he really talking on that cell phone or is this an ‘action photo’?

    I have a pair of Levi’s white jeans which are cut like this; they’re pretty old though, and it wasn’t until I’d been wearing them for a year that I realized -gasp- they were a women’s model!

    Wow! Very dapper. I especially love the white pocket square, which helps balance the darkness of the jacket with the white jeans. Really nice.

    I love this look ….and am proud to share that I am a happy and satisfied practitioner of this style.
    SAR: I personally had some luck with a pair of white “tissue chinos” by Ralph Lauren, moderately priced at $65 that work well with both a sports jacket or for an even more casual look ….untucked straight edged & very tailored Polo and no sock drivers.

    Sorry if I over-indulged …just wanted to pass on my personal experience.

    THX SAR!

    You could try other premium denim brands that do white jeans, like Prada. Or come to London and get CUSTOM jeans from Harrods, made by the bodymetrics system (where they take very precise digital measurements of your body and custom make your jeans/suit).

    You are so right about the pant thing, here in Denmark everybody(men) is wearing those kind of pants and jeans…. And the problem you discribed is exactly mine too… The jeans are too snug in the thigh and too wide in the ankle…. The pants in the foto are perfect though..I really hope that I can find a pair like that… like that the pants are white too, its so are to find a pair of white pants that fit well… In Denmark they are really colored right now ( red, green etc. ) but I dont know if I can pull that off.

    wat do you think about white or nearly white pants with light-colore-strip white shirt? To me, that just looks wrong…

  24. Dave Deckers

    The name of the trousers probably:
    - Incotex
    - Valentini

    Beautifull flatfront trousers available in almost any colour!

    Given the texture,the cut and the distinct look of the pants- I would tenably suggest: the brand is Incotex. Not thier formal line but their casual, informal line which is popular in Italy. You could have guessed this,so,may be Barba Napoli rings a bell? Let me know!

    It’s easier to tailor a pant/jeans than to find the exact right model that will fit you right.

    So my suggestion would be to buy a pair of regular white jeans and have them hemmed and ‘slimmed’ to your wishes. That’s what I do with all my pants and they then fit to one’s body much nicer than mass market designed jeans.

    try the Levi’s 514 slim straight, which also comes in white and has a more modern fit.

    I’ve noticed you feature white pants on a regular basis. I had never even considered them in the past, but you’ve given food for thought…

    I love the white pants/navy shirt combo.

    The truth of it is, that if you can make this work it really works – the straight leg, the colour white and the dark shoes. But if you don’t have that “je ne sais quoi”, BIG trouble.

    The cut of the trousers
    is Perfect
    flat fronted and sexy
    Dramatically put together with
    Brown wool tailored jacket
    and blackest of black polo
    Topped off with
    the crispest white handkerchief
    Makes this a

    The trouble, I find, with white trousers is the pockets always show (they do here, too) because the fabric is a bit sheer. Is there a way around this problem?

    The funny things is that a couple of weeks ago I went to the Levi’s store right across from Bloomie’s on Lex looking for white jeans for men… and they don’t have any!
    Kinda sad how they keep missing on trends…
