    Simple question. Can I wear a pair of grey slacks with a light pintstripe with a solid navy blazer and a shirt/tie, or should the pinstripe pants not be worn with the jacket.

    If by "sport coat" you mean "matching grey pinstripe jacket," then yes. You can wear a "sport coat." If you mean anything other than that and you DON'T want to look like The Joker, then no.

    So simply because of the stripe its a no go, right?

    Exactly. I'm sure that someone's made a decent attempt at pulling it off, but I'd stay away.
