It would not be appropriate for more formal workplaces or a court of law. The details for the pants are: Again, for the first look I went with a more formal look. With the dress boots, its about a formal of a look as you can pull off with the suit. For a more casual look I parted ways with the tie and changed out the shirt to a light blue one.
