1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Stick around, read lots of threads here, and you'll eventually be able to answer your own question.

    That will take a while though, so best to probably post some pics. Just off the cuff though, generally charcoal gray jackets are suits with matching pants, trying to match them with pants of a different fabric will never look that good.

    Does the jacket have texture or surface detail? Is it actually a sports jacket or an orphaned suit jacket?

    Assuming it is a sports jacket then the most reliable trouser colour would be a mid-light grey. I know others recommend creams and golden tans but they can be a bit hit and miss plus (depending on climate) may be a bit limited in season.

    Shoe colour would be driven mainly by trouser colour. Charcoal + brown doesnt look good next to each other normally but if you've light grey trousers the seperation allows the brown shoes
