    I know dark jeans work well with this jacket, but Im looking for something a bit more dressed up. I am going to a bar NYE that says "Cocktail Attire". What is the best way to dress up this jacket?

    Below is the jacket I have.

    Charcoal grey so that the effect is lighter jacket darker contrasting trousers. You don't want them too close in color.

    I'd have to go with Gus on this one. Charcoal grey seems to me to be the best option, especially for evening. White shirt, dark tie. I think you need the contrast.

    As an alternative, I use dark brown quite a bit with my black/white herringbone tweed coat. Dark brown flannels, dark brown cords, dark brown chinos, etc.
