My vanpool buddy is wearing off white or cream pants with a white printed shirt (thin purplish/grey lines but 90% white). Is this OK? I always thought you can't wear white and off white together, just like you can't wear brown shoes with black pants together or brown/black shoes/belt mismatch.

So, is he OK or shouldn't he be wearing something more contrasting with either the pants or the shirt?

The combination you described sounds,well, awful. Maybe it's just that it offends my color sense.

IMO, a solid color shirt would work in maybe a teal or fawn or even a dusty lavender.

As for a print shirt, something that has the exact shade of off-white as the pants.

PS: this really should be in the fashion forum. Good luck.

Whoops. I didn't even realize there was a fashion forum.

Default Can guys wear off white pants with a white dress shirt?

I think it's perfectly acceptable. Perhaps he was feeling exceptionally bright!

Only if you are starring in a summer stock production of The Great Gatsby.

I wouldn't do it, but as I have said to some people, "That looks good, on you."

Did his outfit spontaneously combust?

If not, then you can wear them together

Sounds like a sexy man on the cover of a romance novel. Mmmmmm! And I ain't talking about Edward freaking Cullen either! I'm talking non-sparkly, tall, tan, brown eyes and black hair human. Mmmmm! I can see myself walking on the beach with him.
