So here's the deal– I'm interested in getting a light grey suit. However, the process of finding the perfect grey suit is turning out to be a lot harder than I originally thought. The other day I recently tried on a light grey Band of Outsiders suit thinking it would look spectacular on me. While the fit was perfect, I ended up looking like this: I also found a picture of justin timberlake and he looks pretty silly in his grey suit too: There's something about the specific shade of grey that I have to watch out for...but I can't quite put my finger on it. Needless to say, that particular "band of outsiders grey" color didn't go well with my skin tone and made me look like an old man Perhaps I need an lighter and colder shade grey? Something like this: Or maybe grey suits just aren't for me. I'm a short (5'8) and stocky (165lbs) guy. Perhaps grey suits are only meant for tall slim folks? Lastly, I clearly remember fadetoblack had a waywt photo of him in a ridiculously awesome grey (almost lavender really) lanvin suit. If anyone can help me find it and post it on here, that'd be much appreciated. In any case, I'd like to hear your thoughts / advice on buying a grey suit. Thanks!
