Default Opinions on pants to match jacket

Hey guys,

I've got a Vans Plaid Andreas Wiig Jacket that I usually wear with my black pants and black boots. I'm a little over all the black so I'm on the hunt for a new pair of pants. I've been thinking about getting a Yellow pair of DC Donon pants and am wondering what you guys think. There's probably better brands but it isn't long until I'll be on the slopes and I need to buy something soon.

Here's some photos of the jacket and pants.

Let me know me!

Cheers

Gotta love ass-less chaps^^^^^^

Anyway, not a big fan of yellow, but those seem to match fine. Buying in the summer for me is a killer... gotta stare at the stuff for months.

I like the jacket! Would go with the pants but you're shure you want to sit on such a delicate bright color? Will look dirty instantly...

I have the same jacket. I typically wear black pants, but when I get bored and feel like being an asshole I wear my bright green ones.

Thanks for the reply guys. I'm in Australia so or winter is just about here. Getting very keen. The worst thing is trying to find gear here. I should have ordered some from the states but I've just been lazy. Most of my mates have bright coloured pants like green, aqua, yellow and even white and they seem to stay fairly clean. I'm trying to look for some 686 smartys and stumbled on some of these.

What do you reckon? Won't show up dirt as bad and will still look fairly sedate.

Seems like a few people have it! I've never seen anyone else with it on when I've been out. What gloves have you got on there ETM? I find it hard to tuck my big burton ones on the inside like you have there.

Pretty sure i just have my inner gloves on in that pic but I always manage to get my gloves tucked in, the second one can be hard to manage though.

Its a good jacket but I found the neck is too tight and if completely zipped up is very uncomfortable on my chin. When not zipped all the way the zipper has a tendency to work its way down, also my zipper has started to get jammed in random spots.

I just upgraded to a goretex shell so it will be interesting to compare
