Hmm…maybe a blue-ish seersucker pant?  To complement both the gray and the blue?

Like a dark gray trouser? I think that would be fine, or you could try black (most people have a good pair of black). I would see it in person though because sometimes it works and sometimes it looks like you didn’t realize one was navy and the other black.

Honestly? My vote would be khakis. They really don’t look that casual once they have the tie and boutionniere on. If they had unbuttoned white shirts underneath the blazer,  then I could see how that would look casual.

I think that black pants would just look mismatched and grey would look odd (being two dark neutrals).

Just ask  your guys to get really nice, modern khakis, sans pleats (Express Men has some awesome ones). They’ll be able to wear those again and again, and add a blue/grey tie into the mix, and they’ll look super sharp!

I don’t think khaki is too casual at all.  go for it.

I don’t think khaki is too casual either and I can’t really think of something else that would look good. I love the khaki/navy blue blazer look. They just need to wear ties, etc. to look less casual.

I think grey would look nice and match the groom’s suit nicely.

I think you could do grey. And with grey/blue bridesmaid dresses, it’ll look great.

I’m all for the navy suit with grey pants. Sometimes black works, but you just have to see how it looks together.

Khaki would work if they are very nice khaki pants (not the cargo kind) and ironed well, to look nice and crisp. The only thing with khaki, also for grey, is that they might have different shades of the color and it could look a bit off. Different shades of grey would probably look better than different shades of khaki pant.
