The Everyday Grey.
When you have limited wardrobe space, it’s important that your suits are versatile. Slated represents an excellent choice for those that need a suit that will work in most situations without too much effort. The palette is dark, but not so dark that it comes off austere and allows it to become a great canvas for your accessories. The subtle texture in the weave adds to the luxurious feel of the fabric and plays well with the light, providing a visually interesting element that stops this from being “just a grey suit”.
This suit looks great regardless of what accessories you match it with. It doesn’t matter if you favour reds, blues, darker or lighter colours. Slated will work with what you already have and allow you to create multiple ensembles for almost any event that you need to be prepared for. Even better, this suit will work with almost any shoe you may already have in your wardrobe. Such versatility means that you’ll have to try very hard to not look well put together. Short of a funeral, there’s not much that this suit can’t be dressed for. If you can only have one, this makes a great contender for your attention.
Whites and pastels work best. Use the simple colour scheme of the suit as an opportunity to play with patterns and textures. Ginghams and checks work great in a business context and this will work excellently with blues, pinks, whites and most colours in between.
Take your tie cues from the shirt. As the suit is so subtle, matching your shirt will lead to the best combinations. Try not to go too dark with your tie choice as it may look unseemly against the light nature of the suit.
With a palette so versatile, you’ll find that this will work great with black, brown and almost everything in between. Just remember that the darker the shoe, the more formal your total outfit will look.
Wonderfully versatile and will work in most situations with the right accessories. Avoid wearing this at funerals as that situation requires you to wear black.
