Why not do what Cary Grant did as Mr Thornhill- white shirt and silver/grey tie. Oh, and dark glasses (because his eyes were sensitive to questions!).

I think light grey suit is the most versatile for tie colours. From black to silver and all the shades in between.

I don't care for gray dress shirts, either solid, or in a pattern on white. But I do like black patterns on white. Once had a candy striped black and white shirt with white club collar that I wore pinned, and that had white double cuffs. Also a black check on white with a white spread collar and white double cuffs. Both shirts served as a provacative canvas for ties with a light gray sharkskin. If you like solid ties, try a maroon or burgundy grenadine with either of the above shirts and a white linen pocket square. Black shoes and maroon socks. (With clocks!)

Though that's just one of many options.

As stated previously, the options are practically limitless, but here are my preferences for light grey suits:

White shirt
White pocket square, square (TV) fold
Ties of any nearly any pattern with elements of Navy and/or Burgundy
Light to medium brown shoes with socks to complement the tie (my preference) - or -
Cordovan or Oxblood shoes with socks to match the trousers
I personally don't like black shoes with light grey, but that's just me.

What color shirt and tie combinations do you recommend when wearing a light gray flannel to the office?
Any shoe suggestions other than the obvious black cap toes?
Any color shirt as long as it's white or lt. blue.

ties: Navy, Maroon, Black (as long as there's some grey or silver in it). You want a darker colored tie to contrast with the lighter color of the suit.

Shoes: if you go cordovan, you can't wear a black tie.

Consider (for color only)


Simply smashing.
