I just ordered this Isaia sportcoat from STP. I'm pretty excited - I have one Isaia suit and the fit and style are just perfect for me. What sort of color combinations would go well with this sportcoat? I was thinking charcoal or grey flannel trousers, but I don't have much experience matching shirts and ties to brown. What do you guys think?

Trousers - Navy should work fairly well - corduroy or moleskin. Also British tan/khaki whipcord. Rust too, if you have something like that. Shirts - sky-blue would be my first choice, followed by a very pale pink. Tie - I think you could make navy, salmon, dark purple, brown, or green work, depending on your comfort with color in your ensemble.

In terms of trousers, I would certainly think charcoal would do nicely as well. I am a big fan of browns and greys (there is another thread on this) and see it working fine.

Depends on what kind of look you want.

The safe way to go is with greys and charcoals. Maybe different (lighter) shades of brown would work too (like camel).

I would go with creams (off white), burnt orange, pink (like the sweater the jacket is paired with), etc.

Shirts: I pair brown with purple and lilac alot.
This might also compliment the cranberry color.
I second the above sugesstion of light pink, but would also add for those fun adventurous times a bright pinkish magenta shirt could look cool also.

Great blazer!

Not a fan of navy with this though. I'd go with salmon, dark purple, burnt orange, dark brown, and of course grey, charcoal.

With the pairing they have in the pic, I think a dark puple would look good or a dark brown.

White or cream color shirts would go well especially. Could do more colorful shirts too but it would be more difficult. I think a light pink, light lime, ligh blue, or small check pattern from any of the colors I've already mentioned.

I think a burnt orange or salmon colored tie would really make things pop with a cream colored shit. Think a solid tie would be best, but some stripes would look good as well, esp. ones that alternate large,small, large, small.
