Re: Red Jeans/Trousers

Just be careful, and maybe avoid those that follow you home! Yellow is also to be avoided!

What kind of build are you? We had a sales rep visit our company a few weeks ago who was pretty short in stature and was wearing red trousers which made him look (in my eyes) a bit odd. I guess he would have suited them better if he had been taller and slimmer.

Then again, I am an occasional white-jeans wearer which, I have just read further up the thread, is a fashion faux pas. So perhaps don't take my advice...
Tall and slim you can say.

White jeans are nice too... until you start sweating around some parts of your body or they get worn out

OK, you're good to go.

Just don't iron creases down the front...

Keep your hands off red jeans if you don't have an excellent sense for fashion....

......... even

oh puh-lease

bright colored pants on guys are

Cold colors !! Blues, greys, black, shades of white, some really pale pinks, khaki (for warm), green-greys etc. A relaxed pair of blue or black jeans, with a crisp white or blue shirt, or a cool t-shirt, a touch of confidence and a laid-back attitude.

Only crisp white or blue shirt? Us guys are supposed to wear that everyday for the rest of our lives???

Well... lady I got news for you! The modern emancipated Man is opting to wear bright and bold colours, including the reds, the purples and the oranges to show hes empowered. Gone are the days of gloomy emasculated greys and blacks!

Male species, especially among birds, are always more beautiful and colourful than females and there is a very good scientific reason for it!

With Red jeans, the best combination would be navy/blue and white stripes shirt, dark jacket with brown shoes and belt. You can always add a pony tail and a Porsche to that if you have male problems.

Re: Red Jeans/Trousers

My brother used to wear red jeans with purple t-shirts and he doesn't "play for the other side", nor would it matter if he did. He never looked like he did and no one ever get confused about it. He's not Dutch either.

Of course it depends on the jeans, the fit and how you put them together.

I'm sure you'll look great as it seems like you've thought about this enough to make it work.

Re: Red Jeans/Trousers

Saw a guy at the beach on Saturday with bright yellow shorts. Applauded his bold confidence until I spotted his girlfriend returning from the bar with beers and matching shorts.
Bold is great! Better even if its YOUR choice.

Don't know about the Dutch thing. Someone above mentioned only the Dutch could were red pants. They probably meant orange though.

I do remember a Belgian colleague who would break out his pine green suit when we had business meeting and a German client who wore a bright purple suit to a meeting....

Now I'm guessing these are NOT the type of red trousers/clothes Wasted wants. He wants a cool pair of red jeans, I hope! Jeans yes! Suits NO!!!

Perfect. On women, not sure about jeans, but always fall for the ones in Red dresses.

Dont be so judgemental, dude, it could be HIS choice. She was getting him beers from bar, wasnt she?

But on the beach anything goes, not a big deal.

I think those guys, the Belgian and the German were playing some colour coded, psychologocal negotiation techniques.

Agreed though, suits have to be conservative especially in work environment.

But last week on my way to the airport, I saw quite a few guys wearing Red jeans, 3 just at the airport!!! Its too late I guess.

I don't like red jeans/ throusers but that doesn't include the person wearing them.

The German wearing the bright purple suit owned the (not so small at all) company. Soo..... maybe not being so conservative isn't a bad thing? Oh, and it certainly kept people from laughing at him.

But HOLD ON!!! *Pulling emergency brakes*

Why am I discussing what to wear and what not to wear with a bunch of ladies?!!
