Fabric: The fabric of your suit is a crucial consideration when buying a gray suit. The suit should be made of a fabric that is light and breathable, but also tough and durable. If you plan to wear the suit often, it is best to choose a suit that contains wool. If you don't plan on wearing the suit often, a fabric like polyester might be a good option.

The color of the suit should be light enough to be considered gray and have a blue undertone to look professional. The color should also match your skin tone and hair color. Fortunately, we have already made a nice selection of gray suits for you on this gray suits category page.

For people with medium to dark skin tones, a lighter shade of gray looks great. Khaki also works well. If you have a darker skin tone, you should try to minimize dark colors and add more contrast. Gray suits go well with a variety of shoe colors, including black, tan, or camel. Good to know: Charcoal suits go best with black or dark red shoes.
What about the tie?
Navy ties with wool textures work great with gray for a smart and classic look. You add a touch of warmth to your suit. The burgundy tie is a classic tie that every gentleman should own. It is often seen in combination with a navy suit, but we also recommend that you take a look at this for a gray suit. See also our ties collection.
Which shirt goes with a gray suit?
A gray suit is a versatile addition to any wardrobe. In a mid-tone hue and a snug fit, it works for everything from everyday meetings to special occasions. A gray suit with a navy blue or blue shirt is a great option for formal and semi-formal events. Blue is one of the best choices when it comes to choosing a shirt over a gray suit. Blue perfectly complements gray and gives a clean and fresh look. You can also try a gray suit, white shirt and tie in a dark shade of red, navy blue, blue or purple. If you're wearing a light pink shirt, opt for navy blue, purple, or a burgundy tie.
What is the difference between a two piece and a three piece suit?
It can sometimes be confusing to figure out which suit to wear for which occasion. To make the choice, it is important to understand the differences between the two suits. An important difference is the formality. Athree-piece suit is always more formal than the two-piece suit. This is due to the addition of a waistcoat. The two-piece suit does offer more flexibility in the choice of fabrics, while the three-piece suit is more limited to more classic materials.
A three-piece suit also looks more stylish than a two-piece suit and conveys a sense of elegance and meticulousness. But the three-piece suit also has its limitations, such as the fact that it is not suitable for warmer temperatures. There are some no-goes when wearing a three-piece suit, such as wearing a belt instead of suspenders and wearing a tie clip. It is important to know how to style this suit in order to look your best.
