I've done some picture surfing but haven't found any really good examples. I'm interested to hear some ideas and/or see some better examples.
I've got a burgundy blazer. You "successfully wear it" by slipping both arms into the sleeves such that the jacket buttons at the front side of your torso.
As far as color combinations go, go wild man...blue, grey, camel, green, white. Depending on your shirt/tie/etc, you can make it look good with just about any color pants.
