    I personally think Dyer looks outrageously cool here! I appreciate that the film is supposed to be set in the 80s lol, but his white jeans coupled with the (now retro) fila Bjorn Borg jacket looks uber fit :cool: Do you think I could get away with wearing a pair of white jeans with perhaps a dark shirt, when out clubbing?

    Or maybe you could suggest some other items of clothing I could successfully pair with some white trousers.. polo shirt or a cardigan?

    Looks terrible. But get some because you'll look unique

    To me they scream summer. Shoes wise you'd probably get away with a pair of black/grey plimsolls. I personally wouldn't wear anything with a collar with them, but maybe a grey slim fit tee.

    And who gives a flying **** about being called gay in public?

    I have a few pairs of light cream / off white trousers, and they do look cool in summer, but can easily stain or get dirty if you go out clubbing wearing them, so be careful.

    i don't know.. white jeans on a guy are one of those pieces that are REALLY hard to pull off unless you're the right guy.
    see to me, this guy pulls them off because he's clearly got his own personal style:

    but these three guys have just ended up looking a little gay in them in my opinion:

    so yeah, i think it depends on whether or not you already have a quite obvious personal style that would suit white jeans or whether you're more of a everyday jeans and t-shirt guy (in which case i don't think it would work).

    Ah thanks, that was really helpful. Yeah these such "jeans and T-shirt" guys are so ubiquitous in clubs these days :rolleyes: I just really fancy trying something different lol. Tbh I think those D and G models look just a tad metrosexual, but never mind!

    Well I'd personally never say never to a pair of white loafers, but it's not on my to-do-list. I'd go black or grey and wear a matching tee.

    I think this is the only way they look alright and less gay.

    I dont think that they're overly gay, most of the time they look nice imo, but they can look a bit girly.
