    Hi,
    I have bought this Ermenegildo Zegna Silk & Cashmere blend jacket and am not sure what to wear it with? I currently have Dark navy and light grey slacks, would any of them work or need a new color?

    I can't open the photo -- says I don't have permission to view it.

    A grey odd jacket can be a little challenging to wear, especially if it is a plain mid-grey that could potentially be part of a suit. The key is to have enough contrast with the trousers (in color and/or lightness). Light grey trousers should work. Dark navy could work but if they are close in lightness that might work against you a bit.

    Makes sense - I regret buying this one to be honest as I never used it till now. I did a couple of stupid purchases when I got the job couple of months ago! Here are the two slacks I have at the moment, I'm happy to buy new pants color that I can use solo or with this jacket.
