    I think with this shirt and these pants, it would be smashing.

    khaki pants and a blue shirt for a more "collegiate" look ... maybe with a rep tie.

    gray flannel pants and a micro check shirt for a more sophisticated look ... maybe with a pindot tie.

    I find a burgundy blazer goes well with a glass of brandy, and a naughty little minx.

    binge,

    Do you live in a college dorm room or something? You bedroom and your bed are quite sparse!

    would black pants, white shirt and tie make me look too much of a vallet?

    I like this one a lot, A ... an excellent look. Change footwear to well-worn burgundy or cigar shells PTB/longwing and it'll be even bettah'!

    I think a gray POW with burgundy or tan shoes and a white or light blue shirt would go great.

    Thinking more... some colours I like with burgundy, esp. very dark, almost purple burgundy:

    silver & light-grey (think flannel trousers, or cardigans, or sweaters)
    white/ivory (eg shirts, pocket squares)
    cream (same)
    pale blue (shirts)
    camel (scarves, gloves, maybe trousers)
    maybe - maybe! - dark forest green (knit tie or other similar accents)

    I think what you've done looks great. If you wear it with black dress pants and a white shirt it will look almost formal.

    Prisoner of war, though I'm not sure of the relevance.
