What Shirt & Tie Would Go Well With Dark Silver/Grey Trousers?


I am attending a wedding tomorrow. I am wearing dark silvery/grey trousers with either tan shoes or dark brown boots, was wondering what shirt and tie would go well with it?

Andy’s Answer

Grey is a neutral color so you could technically wear any other color with the trousers.  I would recommend white or light blue shirt and if the wedding has any events after 6 PM do not wear a button down collared shirt (they are unacceptable after 6 PM).

It’s a festive occasion so wear a fun tie – burgundy, red, blue or yellow!   If you wear a jacket, don’t forget the pocket square
