    Default Smart trousers - advice needed

    Hello, most of the time I wear jeans and a tee shirt, but I want to be able to wear nice long-sleeve shirts with trousers that are a bit smarter. Corduroy seems a bit 'old man' and chinos are too thin in cold weather. Can anyone suggest a type of trouser that might be suitable? Think nice floral shirt and Aquascutum jacket look.

    I would go with regular dress pants, in wool, tight fitting, with the crease in the middle, and in a color suitable to the other pieces (that is, may be a grey or lighter brown rather than the darkest blue or black).

    I don't see the problem with corduroy either, especially if they are in an interesting bright color (like orange, red, etc)

    What about moleskin? Maybe camel colour?

    Not a bad idea if you're looking for a casual look. Camel, or you could even try a bolder color like bright red or the like, which works very well in cold, foggy days.

    I think moleskin is a good choice for smart / casual.
    Hackett do some nice ones.

    Hmm, I have a problem jacket. It's a lovely Aquascutum blazer but it's basically dark grey with a slight green to it. Sounds dreadful (the green element) but it's so faint you can regard it as a dark grey blazer. White or light blue shirt goes great with it but the trousers... Jeans look ok but I want something smarter and the rest of my trousers are beige chinos or a different grey. I just can't think of the right colour trousers to compliment it.

    Hard to say without seeing the actual color. You could check some greens that match the green shade you're talking about.

    I'd also go with regular dress pants, in wool, but not tight fitting and in grey or black.
