A shaded white pants like the dude wears up there. It doesn't really look bad.

Is that grey? It looks like a variant of white to me. Must be my crocodile eyes.

The key with white, IMO, is that everything else is elevated to a higher position in the ensemble, the sunglasses must be the right period style and color, both for the wearer and the suit, and is best reserved for a more casual affair. Granted, this perspective is from that of a Northeastern native, where white has a very short season, especially for men, when it must not only be summer, but a hot summer day, for the white to be worn.



Exactly. Thanks.
