How to Wear a Grey Suit
#1: Consider Formality
If you’re going to a casual or daytime event, choose a lighter shade of gray. A more formal affair—typically in the evening—would call for a darker charcoal gray suit.
#2: Make Sure It Fits
Gray suits especially need to fit perfectly; they look best with a slimmer fit and shouldn’t appear boxy. Luckily, the process at Generation Tux is super easy. All we need is your basic information—height, weight, and jean size, etc—and we handle the rest through our innovative fit technology.
#3: Choose Wool
You want to make sure you look and feel your best. Our 100% Super 130’s Wool is comfortable, doesn’t wrinkle, and can be worn throughout the year.
#4: Shirts for Grey Color Suits
#5: Reconsider a Grey Suit & Black Shirt Look
While you can wear a black shirt with a gray wedding suit, it is more of a night look. More vivid colors look better with gray for day and afternoon events.
#6: Ties to Wear With a Grey Suit (Skip The Striped Tie)
Save your gray suit and striped tie for the workplace. Opt for color for a daytime look or keep it classic for nighttime with a darker shade.
#7: Play With Color
Don’t be afraid to be bold with color since gray is the perfect base. Juls Sharpley of Bubbles & Bowties suggests pairing a light grey suit with butter yellows for spring or fall; medium grey with yellow-oranges and/or corals for late summer, fall, or winter; dark grey with soft lavender or light blues for spring and deeper jewel tones for fall/winter.
#8: Select a Lighter Pocket Square
#9: Go Silver
#10: Put On The Right Pair of Shoes
You have a few options when it’s time to choose your shoe color for a grey suit. Black and tan always look good, but if you want to add some flair, slip on a pair in burgundy. For daytime events, many guys are pairing their gray suits it with white and bright trainers to create an eye-catching look, says Dan Hunter of Authority Tattoo.
