I wear cream trou with a navy blazer, so i would wear a cream jacket with medium blue linen trou, or burnt orange linen.
I put together a white/purple striped shirt with contrast cuffs/collar with cream trou one day, and it just looked horrendous with the white/cream in the same look, so i tend to think that it wouldnt work well as a jacket and pants.
