Classic Greys: Distinguished Work Style

Grey truly is the new black, when it comes to work wear. It works effortlessly with you’re your classic work colors – black, navy, camel, white, and cordovan. And it looks equally fresh when paired with a pop of color in your tie or shirt. In a suit, black can seem formal, but a charcoal suit can go from conservative to stylish by just changing up your shirt and tie. The same is true for a well-made wool trouser, sport coat, or beautiful sweater to layer over a shirt and maybe a tie. These will be pieces to wear for years to come, but will also look fresh and modern in how you wear them this season.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow for our after 5 grey favorites and Thursday for the best of grey casual wear. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Grey is a classic color for a man’s suit, mainly because it’s so versatile. This is especially true for a solid grey, like this Peter Millar 2-button beauty. It always is great with a white or blue shirt and classic tie. But you can also wear a bold pattern shirt and tie or no tie. The fit is classic and the silhouette is modern, with slightly narrower lapels and shorter jacket. If you are looking for a trimmer fit solid grey suit, this Hugo Boss is our pick.

Because the pattern of this John Varvatos Star USA sport coat is so subtle, you can easily wear it with patterns or solids. And you can dress it up or down. When you’re out for a day of client meetings, it looks as great with wool dress trousers, a blue pattern shirt and narrow solid tie. For a casual day, wear it with a solid tonal grey sweater and dark grey khaki’s or black wash jeans.

Every business wardrobe needs a grey stripe suit. Made in Italy with lush Italian fabric, this Canali is right for all your business needs – and worth the investment in your wardrobe, as it’s a classic you’ll truly have for years. The quiet stripes make it a good match to both solid and pattern shirts. For business meetings, we suggest keeping the shirt pattern classic - a soft windowpane or small gingham check work well. We assure you this suit will never disappoint.

Ted Baker - Frobisher Flat Front Wool Trousers
Another classically modern essential is that perfect grey wool tweed trouser. It’s so debonair and English in feeling, which is why we chose this one from London’s Ted Baker. Its hearty texture is a great contrast to a sport coat, while the flat front styling looks great with a multitude of sweaters and shirts.

The sophisticated pattern and soft grey and white colors of this Michael Kors button down shirt work with any navy or grey sport coat, as well as any color solid sweater because it reads so neutral. But if you take a closer look, you’ll see it’s anything but boring. The button placket has a stylish contrast trim and the sleeves can be rolled up and buttoned, so it looks great on it’s own with a pair of wool dress pants or dark wash jeans. The fit is modern reducing the bulk of extra fabric in the chest and body, so it’s very slimming tucked in.

These 5-pocket twill trousers from Peter Millar are a unique alternative to wool trousers, khakis, or jeans by combining the best of all of these options into one, dare we say, perfect pair of pants in a classic fit. The luxurious charcoal cotton fabric (like your favorite khakis) creates a textured appearance (like wool) that, along with the 5-pocket styling (on par with your favorite jeans) is the hat trick of fashion. Wear them with a v-neck cashmere sweater and soft pattern shirt for a polished casual business look, or with a grey or navy solid or pattern sport coat for a bit of a more dressed up feel. They look great with these chukka boots no matter what else you wear with them.

As you know from previous posts, chukka boots are the shoe trend of the season. So, this week, we’ve picked an awesome grey pair from John Varvatos. The neutral shade works with everything, and can definitely be worn a little dressier with a sport coat. If you are wondering about a belt for a grey shoe, stick with black.

It’s time to step up your office briefcase. Well, even if it’s not, you’re going to want to now that you’ve seen this one from Jack Spade. It’s made from a custom water resistant fabric and is lined in durable nylon, with bridle leather trim. It also has an interior lap top pocket and three other interior zip pockets to protect all your “stuff”, as well as the requisite exterior side pocket for your keys, phone and boarding pass. Besides all that, the slim shape is a refreshing alternative to a messenger bag that looks great.
