    Seriously. Here are some style notes for looking your best in your tan pants:

    http://www.artofmanliness.com/2016/04/13/style-staples-a-mans-guide-to-khakis/

    In particular, allow me to draw your attention to this:

    Fit/Style. Khakis need not be high-waisted, pleated, or baggy. Instead, opt for a more modern style: flat front, with a straight leg, or a little taper from thigh to ankle, and an all-around more fitted and tailored look. The pants should have a mid-rise fit that sits around your hips rather than up over your belly button. And while khakis are meant to be a little roomier than other pants, you don’t want them to be baggy. They should offer a look that’s both relaxed and athletic.

    And when the Krauts march you off to the cooler, wear those khakis with pride!

    If you can't find a way to wear tan pants well, then you probably don't wear any of your clothes well.

    Tan pants are where it's at... But Zappa said "Brown shoes don't make it". I'd agree.

    This was my introduction to khakis. I grew up in East L.A. in the '50s and '60s as a minority anglo kid. Almost all the Mexicans wore khakis like those pictured above. They were so ubiquitous that "Khaki" or "Khak" became a derogatory term for Mexicans.
