    There are some style rules that most people agree on, and some that are hotly debated. For the rules that are debatable, your attitude (swagger/confidence) in how you pull off the luck makes all the difference.

    Many people will tell you that black is not as versatile as tweed, gray, navy, etc. I agree with that; you need to wear colors that are equally bold / have the same impact. That said, black is also neutral so it matches every color. Here's my attempt at black cord sport coat w/ brown:

    IMO: Since you already have brown patches on the elbows, I would stick to a brown belt and brown shoes. Dark gray or indigo jeans. No dress slacks, the cord jacket is too casual. No dark navy that looks to be too close of a match to black. Maybe gray worsted wool or grayish tweed depending on how loud the texture is. Also, IMO no cord pants with a cord jacket. Shirt and optional v neck sweater can be almost anything.
