    Grey slim trousers, but you could go with black as well if you're comfortable rocking all black

    Black shirts go well with grey or dark blue denim. Black shirt with a grey suit is a favourite combination of mine (as WAYWRN attests).

    I had the same thought about the flames. This could get ugly.

    I agree with you on the denim. If you're going to wear a black shirt it's probably the best option. I don't agree with the suit. I'm not a fan of shirts that are darker than the suit.

    Grey is a great color to pair with black and you will want them to be slim to go with the shirt.

    What a silly question: the grey-green of the fascist militia's uniform!

    Gray--if you must. Black shirts are almost always a bad idea.

    +1. I'm not a fan of black shirts, but I'd also suggest gray.
