Good equine apparel for men?

This question is an opinion question. I'm a 17 year old male who just decided he wants to take riding lessons, eventually I will probably want to get some appropriate attire. What do you think would be an attractive outfit for a male?

Pictures and/or links would be helpful.

Both. Just specify which style in your post.

If you're just now taking riding lessons, I would think comfort is the top priority here - typically, loose fitting jeans/trousers would be key, but always for footwear a boot or shoe with at least a 1 inch heal. Never sneakers.

But you don't think I should get special riding pants or anything?

I ride in "red cap" work pants, a t-shirt, and square toed boots.

Not what one would picture, right? But I'm comfortable.

Unless you plan to show, wear what you're comfortable in. But do wear a good pair of boots, ones that are of quality leather and have a sole that both, fit in and out of your stirrups, and have a heel (if you intend to wear spurs, be sure the boots have a spur ledge). I honestly feel boots are our first line of safety and comfort/enjoyment when riding.

If riding/showing English, I suppose they may? I honestly don't know though.
As far as pleasure/western, unless showing, it pretty casual.

My husband used to ride English and would wear breeches & hunt boots when riding. Otherwise certain areas where...."compromised" as he put it, lol.

When I force him to ride western, he prefers his wranglers (the original kind) that he got at Tractor Supply and his work boots.

As for shirts, he's ALWAYS and ONLY in t-shirts

I haven't tried jumping, but I've ridden English saddles wearing my Wranglers ($15.88 at Wal-Mart). My Australian style saddle feels just like my Bates AP English saddle, and all I've ever ridden in is jeans. If money is no object, buy & wear breeches if you wish. If you are on a budget, then jeans will work. At least until you get serious about some specific equine sport.
