    What color pants would you suggest with a medium gray checked sport coat? Any photos would be much appreciated.

    Darker gray (charcoal as stated above). Even tan!

    Yes, I would wear pants.

    Seriously, medium gray is versatile. Blue, olive, brown, charcoal... I would probably stay away from the tan, but it could probably be done well.

    Tan / Khaki pants look good with gray sports coats.

    i like to put a navy pant with mid grey jacket. but as others have mentioned, a darker grey or charcoal also pairs well.

    I'd vote for Navy, to be safe. If you go with gray pants, just make sure the contrast between them and your coat is stark enough.

    A pant color that's lighter than the sport coat - cream, tan, or khaki. I'm generally not a fan of pants darker than the jacket.

    I would wear dark grey/charcoal pants, or even black pants.
