    I bought a couple new jackets and I need some suggestions on dress shirt and tie combos for each?

    Jacket 1 - Tan and Brown Tommy Hilfiger jacket - I've actually had this jacket for more then 10 years and have always worn the same tan and burgundy tie with it but need to expand my options. I have several pairs of chocolate brown pants (1 flannel & 1 gaberdine) and I just ordered a couple of Sam Hobers Grenadine Gara Grossa ties in bitter chocolate and hunter green.

    Can I wear charcoal or medium Grey pants with this jacket?

    Jacket 2 - Brooks Brothers Saxxon Glen Plaid with blue window pane- I have several charcoal and medium grey wool and flannel pants and may be picking up a black pant but what shirt and tie combos can I wear other than white and blue?

    Jacket 3 - Brooks Brother Herringbone tweed - Again, my Charcoal and Grey pants mentioned above should work great with these but shirt and tie combos are the problem?

    Many thanks.

    Charcoal or black pants.
    Pink, white, pale yellow shirt.
    Many tie combos.

    Unfortunately, pants are at the tailors.

    What about chocolate brown or navy pants with jacket 1? Does anyone wear charcoal pants with brown sport coats?

    I wouldn't do the chocolate brown, but navy pants might work.
    I've never seen anyone wear charcoal pants with a brown jacket.

    Charcoal pants go great with black or navy jackets, even dark green sometimes.

    Since both grey and tan/camel are neutrals...I thought the colors would look good together. Similar to Gianni Agnelli.

    Jacket 1: Lighter, medium gray trousers would be fine.

    Jackets 2 and 3: Charcoal or navy pants. In terms of ties, I hear what you are saying about having a tough time choosing one to wear with a patterned jacket. But with jacket 3, if you were wearing a white shirt with charcoal trousers, I think it would actually be harder to find a tie that didn't work, unless it was brown or something. I think that your idea to use a solid color grenadine is fine, if a little safe. I usually wear some variation of a repp tie with my odd jackets, like one of these:
