The Grey Dress Shirt
Unlike black or white, grey spans a wide spectrum of hues, running from light all the way to charcoal.
The difference between light and charcoal grey is dramatic, as are the guidelines for pairing. However, when wearing grey you will never be short on matches or places to go.
Depending on how you view it, a grey dress shirt is either the perfect starting point or a non-starter. In other words, it can serve as the backdrop to more expressive colours and patterns or it simply isn’t worth your effort. What grey lacks in the personality department it makes up for in potential—by incorporating colourful accessories such as a tie or choosing a textured fabric for your shirt you can revive an otherwise unremarkable tone.
Still, for some men the calming effect of grey, whatever the shade, is excitement enough. It establishes reliability and authority. Simply rolling up the sleeves takes it from professional to causal in an instant, with no outside help.
If you do want to turn up the level of interest, pay special attention to the finer details. Add a pocket, pick a bolder weave such as herringbone, choose something that reflects rather than captures light.
