No way. black or charcoal socks would look horrible with tan or brown pants but navy can still work. I can't say I'd like navy socks with olive though, and it wouldn't look good with some browns and tans.
Still, why not just go with a variety of solid colors? It's really not that hard. My pants encompass most of the colors than men wear, from white to tan, to mocha, varying shades of grey and blue, charcoal and olive. I don' thave a huge collection of socks. I have brown, navy, charcoal, black and cream. They go with everything and a selection of solids is better than just going with navy all the time. It's really not difficult to figure out what goes with what.
