You catch yourself in the bathroom mirror. There's something off about the tie for your grey suit. You can't put your finger on it, but you know you could've done better. A grey suit's versatility should make tie pairings a slam dunk—but they can get tricky. However, pairing can be effortless with the right ties for a grey suit.

Why don't you join us in looking at eight ties for grey suits that make you look like a polished gem wherever you go. But before we do that, we have to figure out where your tie pairings can go sideways.

Don't Let Your Tie Undermine Your Timeless Style

Stumbling with a tie pairing happens to the best of us. Here are a few reasons you're not hitting the mark. Avoid them, and you'll look sharp and sophisticated for whatever's on your calendar:

The Tie Design is at Max Volume - Loud designs draw the wrong kind of attention. Choose refined designs that pull an outfit together and make it whole.

The Tie's a House of Cards - Poor material and construction means your tie won't look right—no matter how you pair it. Make sure your ties are made with the best materials for a tie and a wool interlining so it always looks the way you want it to look.

Your Knot is Too Big - Or it isn't long enough or tight enough. The good news is that it's an easy fix! Get your tie etiquette right to maximize the stylish pairing you cook up.

Now that we have your tie in order, we can get to ties for a grey suit to take you from a rough gem to the most polished man in the room. We have eight ties to pair with your grey suit. There's a pairing for every occasion, so make sure you see them all.
