1) Black shoes are ok, but I think you'd be better served with a pair in a cordovan / dark brown / auburn area.
2) I would say no cologne. The odds of offending are greater with it on, plus you never know who is sensitive to what smells. Better to play it safe and skip it.
3) Jacket on. No question. You aren't coming in to get comfortable and stay for dinner and drinks. If you are out to lunch on a CB, then maybe off, but follow the crowd. If you are in an interview setting, jacket on.
Agree on 1 and 3, but completely disagree on 2. Of course you can wear a bit of cologne to OCI. Don't overdo it, but thats less than a non-issue.
