STYLE ICONS: CARY GRANT & THE TIMELESS GRAY SUIT

Cary Grant, New York City. 1938.  A true style icon, Grant often wore a sharply tailored gray suit, white shirt and black tie.  A timeless, classic look that is as leading-man appropriate today as it was in the 30’s.  The above photo shows Grant returning from a vacation in Europe.  On board was Phyllis Brooks, whom he would soon go on to marry.  To get the look, find a gray two button suit that fits precisely and pair it with a white point collar dress shirt and a medium width, solid black tie.

J.Crew’s 2 button gray “Ludlow” suit jacket ($395), matching  trousers ($195), dress shirt ($65) and solid black tie ($49)StS.
