The Gray Suit
“I feel good in a gray suit year-round,” says Daniel Lewis of Brooklyn Tailors. “And this summer we created a charcoal colored stone washed unstructured suit in a cotton and linen blend that feels right at home in the spring and summer, but maintains a deeper darker color palette.”
A good tailored suit is a significant investment, so it’s important to always think about versatility — something that can be worn through multiple seasons and dressed up or down.
“The most versatile suit you can have in your wardrobe is a mid-gray worsted wool in a medium weight cloth,” Lewis adds. “It should be clean and simple without any overpowering gimmicks or details.”
A gray suit that is well made, fits great, and is discreetly styled gives you a blank slate. You can pair it with just about any shirt, tie, or shoe, and it can be transformed into a variety of different outfits.
Be creative — break up the jacket and pant as separates. [$750 from Brooklyn Tailors; eastdane.com]
