Can you show an image of the bridesmaid dresses?

You didn’t mention what shade of brown or blue.  I’m with Chela, a bit.  Could the GM wear brown pants/blue shirt or vice versa?  White shirts would be OK, too.  But maybe with a coordinating brown or blue.

Ooh Tanya!   They can wear either brown or blue pants and then a tie like this, maybe?

Sorry the colors I posted are navy, but you get the idea.  I would have them wear dark brown pants.  With a blue tie that matches the cornflower from the bridemaids dresses (I would take a swatch along with me)

I echo others’ comments on shying away from black pants.  I think a khaki would look nice or any shade of blue or brown. 

My preference, in general, is to have colors that coordinate, not necessarily match.  Different shades tend to create a more rich and multi-dimensional color palatte.  For example, I have four colors and several items are in different shades of each color, and it still doesn’t look overwhelming–everything is coming together very cohesively, even though the colors don’t exactly match.  So, if I were trying to find the right color of pants, I would not worry too much about getting an exact match, so long as they all compliment each other nicely. 

Good luck!

I had trouble finding the mocha…  Is that the color that the dress is already in?  Or did you mean truffle?  I think brown pants would definitely be easier than cornflower blue.  But yeah maybe a blue tie or something.  Your FH doesn’t have to match them.  The groom’s usually match the bride.  So I wouldn’t worry about putting him in a blue shirt or anything.
