    I believe the above from L. Barbera website shows a cotton on cotton ensemble.

    What sportcoats go with cotton pants, ie. grey, khaki.

    I think wool or higher sportcoats look horrid with cotton/linen pants.

    Can cotton?
    Linen?

    Best to keep the Sportcoat and pants of the same material?
    etc.

    wool works depending on the type/texture, e.g., super 150s

    Tweed can go nicely, for a rustic effect, though I tend to reach for cords/other trousers first.

    I think cotton pants go with anything except heavy winter materials. I think cotton can look good with wool, cashmere, etc., as long as the material is light weight and the cotton pants are good quality.

    I think you could pull a wool blazer with cotton khakis as long as the pants were nice and the colors were matched OK.
