My basic rule with trouser / shoe pairing:Happy Thanksgiving all
Thought we might play a fun game called: What color wool trousers or cotton chinos would you pair with each color Fifth Avenue? (Please be specific about fabric type and color)
- Dark Chili
- Oxblood (ordered and on the way)
- Walnut (ordered and on the way)

Neutral or earth tones get paired with a color.
Navy shoes: grey or brown trousers.
Brown shoes: anything BUT grey or brown trousers.
There are additional subtleties like matching luminance (natty shell gets a bright/mid green trousers pairing, while a darker brown gets a dark green, for example), but the above is my starting point.
Chili and oxblood are both red enough to qualify for grey trousers in my opinion (though chili is on the border, which is why it is so versatile).
YMMV - this is my approach.
