What does a dark brown / black houndstooth sport coat match with, pants wise? Black? Light tan? What about black shoes? (I still haven't found non-black shoes I like).

Assuming that you have something like this:



...then just about any colour pants will work. Personally, I would avoid black shoes with this but that's a personal preference. Consider burgundy shoes.

It's actually more like the color of that tie. I don't mind the combo that actor has (see attached), but I wouldn't wear it during the day.

Any gray except charcoal
Khaki
Blue
Maybe navy depending on the darkness of the sports coat
Olive

This is generally a very versatile sports coat I would think.
