What color can i wear with grey pants?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I jsut bought a nice pair of grey dress pants. I said I can wear a white dresshirt with them or a pink one. Another worker told me white can never be worn with grey pants. Who is right? What other color shirts can be worn with grey pants? Thank you so much for your advice.

In my opinion, the best thing about grey trousers is that almost any colour goes well with them. Saying that, I usually only wear a plain white shirt with a suit.

grey pants are extremely versatile...can wear pretty much any color under the sun with them. the only exception i can think of would be a matching grey shirt, lol.

I'd have no problem wearing a white shirt with the pants you mentioned. Only thing is, I would look for a white shirt with a visible fabric pattern on it. A larger herringbone or a nicely textured nailhead. And if you wear the white shirt, wear brown shoes. You'll look sharp.

your coworker is wrong. A plain white shirt with grey trousers may look a tad boring by itself, but it's out of bounds by no means. I'd do a plain shirt with a suit for sure, by itself I would as others said get some kind of pattern going.

I probably wouldn't wear a brown shirt with them. Other than that, pretty much anything goes. As for your co-worker who said you couldn't wear a white shirt with them, well that's just silly. Bradford

no kidding, your coworker is a moron, at least in terms of what goes with what. It wasnt that long ago that 99% of men in this country wore white shirts with every color suit they owned. The more relaxed corporate environments allowed for blue shirts. That said, white shirts go just great with gray pants, or a gray suit, or under a gray sweater, or under a gray overcoat, or beneath a gray fedora, or under a gray scarf, etc.
