Every gentleman should have a couple of solid grey suits in his closet. A lighter swatch that can be worn year round and a darker hue for the autumn/winter. At the minimum one will do in a medium grey...not too dark or light.
The suit I am featuring is super light and I wear it year round. I get away with this suit in the winter with dark, wool ties. Conversely lighter silk or cotton ties in the spring/summer. I pair the trousers with any sport jacket, button down collar shirt (no tie) when I travel or attend an informal meeting.
Finally, no matter how light or dark, you want to anchor any grey suit with brown shoes. I leave the style up to you...brogues, cap toes, monk straps, penny loafers etc. What I frown upon...better yet; won't allow...is a square toe. (Just donate your pair IF you own any and thank me later).
