    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
