Flat or Pleated Pants with Double Breasted Suit?

Can flat-front pants be worn with a double-breasted suit, or is it always double-breast+pleated trousers?

The convential combination whether you are looking back at the 20's and 30's or if you are looking at recent fashion trends has always been a pleated pant with a double breasted jacket. You can always decide to express your own style and wear something that is a little less conventional which is what all fashion designers and artists do. But.. in my opinion, the reason we have always seen pleated pants with a double breasted jacket is simply the combination is more balanced than it would appear with a flat fron pant. A pleated pant and a DB jacket are both a fuller look which is contrary to the look of the flat front pant.
