I have a charcoal gray suit (with stripes) that goes with pretty much any color shirt and tie. I am considering a medium gray suit but, because it is lighter in color, just doesn't seem to look as good with various colors of shirts and ties. Would appreciate any thoughts or advice on this since gray suits are supposedly a staple in a man's wardrobe. The suit I am considering is, specifically, a medium gray, vested, with white bead stripes. For some reason lighter suit colors just don't appeal to me.
