    I have the Parliaments in saddle brown and wear them with my charcoal/navy suits, dress pants and jeans (with collared shirt and SC).

    I wear my mocha AE Drydens frequently with wool pants of various colors: tan, brown, medium gray, navy, and charcoal.

    I'm wearing my Alden cigar shell longwings with brown wool Incotex today.

    My PRL / C&J cigar shell PTBs look nice with jeans and, yes, cotton khakis. :tinfoil:

    I read somewhere that navy or blue should be worn with dark brown shoes.

    Dark brown can be worn with anything except a tuxedo. (Assuming that your tux is the only black suit in the wardrobe).

    What about with a pair of black pants (for a business casual environment, so no suit or jacket)? What about burgundy/merlot with black pants?

    Black pants are for formal affairs, not for everyday work attire.

    You should not own a pair of black pants unless they are tux pants and part of a tux....

    it takes forever for SFers to fall into a trap now. before it was easy to start a flame war.
