    Hello guys
    I need your recommendation on what colour pants to wear with a dark brown sport coat? I have to attend a dinner meeting out of my city next week. I want to wear the sport coat instead of suit so please let me know if you have any good recommendation for me. And also please tell me if you know any good Sports store in UK.

    Thank you!

    My advice is wear clean pants. In case you are run over

    And remember to look to opposite way when crossing the road, we drive on the left here! (BTW pants in the UK is a slang term for underwear , just in case.)

    Phil Lynott complained of "always getting chocolate stains on his pants". That'll teach him to take his trousers off in the cinema...

    Tan or mid-grey should work fine.

    Brown sport coat? For sure dark brown shorts.
  7. Yeah, tan to medium brown slacks should work fine.

    Yes. Obviously make sure the brown of the pants is distinct enough from the brown of the coat that it doesn't look like it's supposed to match. Other than that, you have a lot of freedom there.

    +1 Mid-grey looks great with almost every sportcoat. If it doesn't...get rid of the sportcoat.
  10. Light grey, Navy or tan...John
  11. What material is the coat made of? Wool? Makes a difference.
    I'd suggest tan, depending on the texture of the coat.

    As Capt. Lex noted, you will want contrast between the trousers and the sport coat.

    And as Otter said, they drive on the wrong side of the road. Our tendency is to look right and step off the curb. Zap. Another tourist killed or seriously injured. It almost happened to a friend of mine, but I knocked him back just before he was hit. And he frequently goes to London. A little alcohol and a lapse in concentration is all it takes. It gets a bunch of us Yanks every year.
