Got this question via email from Major Taylor. Can we help him?

----------------------

Like many people I have not been out to any functions or events in months.

However, I was given this jacket. I was wondering if I could pull this off with the pants in the picture?

Would you wear this combination?

Not sure there is any help for that.

Given that I belong on the Trad forum, my initial reaction is a hard "no." However, if I had to pair them I would use a limited palette...white shirt, navy tie, and navy pocket square with large white polka dots.
Doesn't matter if you're trad or anything else. There's no way a plaid jacket and plaid trousers that do not match (are not part of a suit) can ever pair in harmony.

I agree, but I see others, chiefly countryside Brits, mixing plaids, district checks, and tattersalls, at times with tartan ties. Just yikes.

Thanks. I do value your opinion.

There are ways to mix three (or even four) checks successfully, but I don't think I've seen countryside Brits pair a plaid jacket with plaid trousers. For the more adventure man, the jacket in question could be paired with fine houndstooth check trousers and a mid-sized grid-check shirt. I'd probably keep the tie solid.

100% agree with this.
