AW15 Trend: Grey On Grey Tailoring
Sometimes simplicity is the best ways to enhance style, and it can be very easy to often overcomplicate colour combinations. With London Collections: Men showcasing some fine tailoring, it was great to see the tonal grey on grey combination make it onto a few catwalks.
In partnership with Lynx, we walk you through the best way to achieve this trend for the up and coming season.
From The Catwalks
E-Tautz, Hardy Amies, Tiger of Sweden and Gieves & Hawkes led the way with the trend, and they all had their own take. Patrick Grant and E-Tautz went for more relaxed tailoring (bottom left), where as Gieves & Hawkes (bottom right) went for something a bit more classic and a bit more fitted.

If you’re looking to achieve the look, our advice would be to focus on fit. When looking to implement tailoring into your style, it’s so important that the suiting fits as it should. When you get the fit right, focus on mixing up texture and patterns to keep things interesting. In terms of textures, opt for pairing knitted garments with lighter fabrics such as cotton. If the suit you’re wearing is made from a heavier fabric, wear lighter fabrics underneath it. The Prince of Wales check is a classic pattern to implement into the look.
Accessories can add detailing when needed, and don’t be afraid to dress down your suit with a grey t-shirt or some knitwear. Keep the tailoring as simple and as classic as possible and opt for a classic, formal shoe.
Hopefully the video has given you inspiration to pull off this look, but let us know what you think of the trend.
