Are burgundy (dark brown or dark burgundy) acceptable and look good with black pants or charcoal?

Definitely okay with Charcoal. I think they could be okay with black, but I will defer to the experts on that one.

Burgundy shoes with charcoal pants looks great together, IMO. Dark brown looks okay, too, but I prefer burgundy with charcoal.

Oh yes.

In fact, right now, I'm wearing black pants, a light blue french cuffed shirt and a plum sweater with an odd jacket and my burgundy AE Sanfords.

+1 unless you are too self conscious about it - then no.

Oh aye. A dark burgundy with black.

Love it. I wonder why there are so few burgundy shoes around. Have they gone out of fashion?
