There are blue men and grey men. Each return to their favorite colors as swallows to San Capistrano. They return to one of these colors for a variety of reasons.
For the business environment, or occasions that are formal, the color of the suit should have one quality: it should be as neutral as possible. The impact of the suit comes from its cut and fit, and the way it is complimented with shirt, tie and accessories.
The navy blue suit is the salesman’s suit. It fills both the wearer and beholder with a clear, forthright and hard working brand of honest confidence. It is athletic, seductive, disciplined and toned. The blue suit is well defined.
Grey suits are more mysterious. Their mottled reflection leads to many more questions than answers. Our eyes linger on their image as we search for clues. The hero wears a white hat and the villain a black one. Who is that wearing the grey? Mystery holds our attention. The grey suit is refined.
Defined or refined, each has its place in the connoisseur’s wardrobe.
I am not sure it’s true of blondes, but grey guys have more fun.
