Dark grey is certainly less versatile than other colors.

I don't think they're all that versatile. I like contrast in my outfits so I wouldn't be reaching for one to go with any sort of dark jacket. I'd want other colors first as Tweedy mentioned before going out and buying one of these which I'd consider pretty outfit specific.

Agreed, not so versatile as the other colors mentioned.

 

But to think out loud, consider Seamaster here who presents another great example.

 


A darker tie would be nice here IMO. I think the overcheck might be blue in which case a navy solid cashmere would be good given the other elements (e.g. the stripes of the shirt). But you could go with a darker grey as in your pic to play off the base of the jacket (which I am assuming is grey). That would be a more staid, achromatic look. Both would look good.

I stopped wearing dark gray simply because it doesn't jive with anything that I have, which isn't much. The only time that I wore a dark gray was this pear shaped fit...

Dark gray ties with navy suits don't look good to me.

These colors are a bit off in this photo, but I like a grey cashmere tie with a blue coat in a more casual fit.

Dang it. Homer for navy ties. I feel like I am going to have a bucket load of navy ties again.

I know. But GDL/NMWA newsletter made a good note. Navy ties are the best selling, but also some of the hardest to match. because Navy suits are some of the most popular, but navy tie + navy suit is very tricky (I think this was in "The Italian Solution", where they recommend rust/brown ties instead)

Interesting. Navy tie on navy suit is easy for me...:cool:

First of all, this is heresy. Please report for re-education and repent of your false beliefs... smile.gif

Second, the tie you posted is not dark grey. It is absolutely classic with a navy suit and would look fine with a charcoal suit too.
