MWD: GREY MATTERS

24.08.14

Often wrongly thought of as a member of style's supporting cast, for fall/winter we're championing the endless aesthetic appeal of grey in all of its various guises. We're not just talking a dash here or there either, head-to-toe is the way to go. This week's menswear diaries considers the undeniable sartorial charm of grey.

DRESSED UP

A mainstay of a man's formal wardrobe throughout his life, grey perhaps feels most at home when manifested on tailoring. Whether flecked, checked, tweed or twill, despite grey's rather staid reputation, the colour lends itself well to endless versatility - which although quiet - is undeniably classic.

DRESSED DOWN

Few can argue with the catch-all convenience of the grey marl T-shirt or grey crew-neck sweater. Simple, subdued and always stylish, dressed down grey is the perfect go-to for an unfussy look that communicates fashion nous without grabbing too much attention.
