Collection Highlight - The Slate Grey Suit

As much as the fashion industry enjoys talking about all the latest “out there” styles we can’t forget the more versatile choices that we search for more often. The colour Grey has a reputation for being incredibly versatile while straying away from the norm of classic Black, while different shades are worn for different occasion. So let’s talk about slate grey.

 

 

Where to wear it

 

Being one of the darker shades available, slate grey is popular for corporate events because of its professional look and feel. Different textures and tailoring the flatters will result in an outfit that is youthful but work appropriate.

How to wear it

 

Pastels are a grey suit’s best friend, so try incorporating coloured neckwear and pocket squares to add personality, but keep shirts white to avoid over complicating an already great outfit. Equally, muted colours can add autumnal vibes whether it be accessories or footwear - we recommend Oxford shoes in Brown or even Burgundy.



When to wear it

 

Lighter shades of grey are commonly worn in linen blends through summer so, this season we suggest looking for a slate grey suit with a thicker wool blend to keep off the chill without looking bulky. A three piece suit in this shade will shine at autumn weddings, with the addition of a waistcoat you can remove layers and still be wearing a tailored piece that feels special.
