    These pants look grey, but they're not.
    They're more of a grey, olive, and cream combination.
    The photo on the right is much more representative.

    What sort of jacket would work with these pants?
    They are highly textured herringbone, so a worsted suit jacket look may clash.
    I think a tweed jacket might work, or will that look like one giant tweed suitcase on a safari?
    Navy jacket? Tricky to picture that.

    You mean greenish houndstooth?
    Wouldn't that be too much of a similar pattern from head to toe?

    I think these pants will work with a textured charcoal coat (almost black)

    Depends on the pattern. It's hard to tell with those pants, though. The wide shot looks almost solid.

    I know you said navy was tricky to picture, but my first thought ran to navy flannel. That's probably just me, though.
