    What color pants with this sportscoat?

    Going to wedding SaturDAY and i wanted to wear this sportscoat:



    My problem is that I'm not sure what pants to wear with it. I was thinking of getting a pair of heather grey pants from jcrew factory to match but am unsure now. Any advice would be helpful.

    I wouldn't try to match it. Go navy pants.

    I'm new here, so I'll defer to others, but I'm guessing since it's a mid-grey sportcoat, avoid the matchy-matchy since it isn't a suit. If you get the colors close but not matched, it'll look, well, mismatched. Instead go for charcoal or navy which will contrast enough to let it function as a sportcoat.

    +1, I'm jumping on the bandwagon. Darker pants for contrast. Don't do grey unless its a really dark grey. I wear navy flannel pants with a jacket that color and really like the look.

    You could also do a darker, caramel colored khaki, they'd have to be of a dressier variety for the occasion though. Would look good with a blue shirt and tie similar to the above linked image.

    Well what do you know, I just happen to be wearing your suggestion today!

    Lighting is a bit off, but the jacket is a similar gray to the OP's jacket selection.
