Best Trouser Colors For Men

When you’re shopping around for the best pants, it’s tempting to think of a lot of different variables. The fit, the style, the “dressiness” of the article of clothing you’re considering buying. But what about the color? It’s one of the first things you should consider as you buy men’s trousers, because the color of your pants will have a dramatic impact on your overall look. Do you want casual? Formal? Versatile? The color will have a lot to say about what the pants can do for you. Here’s a quick guide to the best trouser colors for men.


Navy is a unique color in that it commits to a specific hue—it’s not white or black, for example—but it also adds the versatility that other hues simply can’t bring to an outfit. Navy can pair with about as many colors as grays, khakis, and whites. But since it’s such a clear color itself, it can bring out the special qualities of other colors for something that’s wholly unique and individual.

Consider these Charleston Khakis in Flat Front. They’re available in classic colors like white and khaki—and yet the Navy option is somehow just as classic and just as versatile as all the rest.


Khaki has a reputation as a “safe” color. Do you know why that is? Khaki trousers are a safe because the color simply works. It’s versatile enough to pair with just about any other color in your wardrobe. It will look great dressed up with a blazer or a suit. It will look great dressed down with a simple button-down shirt on top.

Berle Charleston Pleated Khakis are available in five colors, but no one will blame you if you keep coming back to that old stand-by: khaki. There’s no reason a man shouldn’t have the “safest” article of clothing in their wardrobe for those situations that demand versatility.

You don’t have to give up on versatility if you choose Charleston Brick. In fact, if you choose a casual option like Charleston Khakis Washed Flat Front pants in Charleston Brick, you’ll find that you can enjoy a wide range of color options, from suiting up with a navy blazer to dressing them down with a crisp white shirt.
