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

    In before the flames start...

    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.

    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.

    Tan or Tope chinos or even better, dress pants in either color w- twill. Textured pants give a richer look and don't look militaristic.

    Stone colored pants might look good, too.
