In ( and I iron and wear them during the summer) or out (off to the charity shop)

If in, what would you wear them with?

Thanks in advance smile

Any advice please?

In! They go with anything and everything. And they look very classy.

Well while they're certainly not my thing. I'd still say they were in. As Doozy says. They go with anything.
Plus navy trousers and a white
T-shirt/blouse would be a fantastic nautical look for the summer.

I'd chuck them, unless they're really good quality, not because they're navy or wide leg but because I detest linen trousers. I hate the way they look like you've dried the dishes with them within an hour of putting on.

But if you don't share my linen trouser hatred then keep and wear with a fitted top.

In - if they fit well. Linen can look great but if its either too baggy you look like a scruff or two tight it strains then you look fatter. Be brutally honest about the fit and there's your choice.
If you keep them then wear them with fitted top, plain T, or white vest and white shirt over the top.

Linen creases like a bugger and the wide-leg linen look is not very stylish. Linen trousers are rarely flattering IME.

Navy is good, though: what about some rolled-up chinos (the Gap broken in chinos are nice)?

Out. Unless you're off somewhere fiendishly hot on holiday this summer, where you have to cover up... in which case get rid of them after that.

Personally I'd say out, but I hate linen and find it such an unwearable fabric.

Another vote for out.

only keep if super heavy weight linen (say Max Mara or similar)

Out. No matter how well you iron them theyll look like a crumpled bag as soon as you sit down. Even groomed and polished Eva Longoria looks like she slept in them.
