Gray jeans take more effort to coordiante, unlike blue jeans which goest with almost everything.
Yeah, gray jeans take a bit more work to pull off. I have four pairs in various shades of gray - from about the shade you posted, all the way to a pair that is nearly black.
As previously stated, monochromatic color schemes work well with gray. Also, light pink looks really good, as do other pastel colors (baby blue, lilac, light yellow).
You should definitely get a cardigan sweater. I have about 6-7 in the zip-up variety, and one really thick button up cardigan with a nice collar on it. I wore some variation of the cardigan sweater 4 days out of the week this fall and winter.
