    Pink is what better matches a grey suit for me, never blue!

    Virtually anything. But for the best way(s) to wear grey just google "Gianni Agnelli".

    Also, colour is important, but texture, brightness, and weight are equally if not more important when combining garments.

    Just about any shirt and tie as long as they work with each other. I suppose you probably would want to avoid shirts that are darker than the suit.

    I have a lot of grey suits. Colors I wear with them include:

    Lavender
    Pink
    Blue
    Yellow

    And combinations thereof, depending on the tie.

    Grey goes with anything. I do like blue/purple/lavender/pink with it particularly.

    You need darker color ties with light-medium gray suits if you want to have the same sharpness-factor of those around you wearing darker suits. I suggest black or black-striped ties. if you go with pink, red, yellow, etc like other posters recommended, you will look too casual compared to the guy in a darker suit next to you.

    What would be a good shirt/tie combo for this gray suit? Most my dress shirts are blue, and I don't have a tie yet. I'm just now building up my professional wardrobe, I need to buy some more shirts and ties.
