The Stylish Gray Suit That Will Carry You Through Fall

Wear your finest charcoal with a little bit of flame.


It's a question I've pondered more than once over the years: do gray suits always have to be so… well… gray? Now, I don't mean the color, of course. I just mean the attitude. They're boring. And if you ask me, there's never been a sartorial menswear classic—regardless of its elegance and timelessness—that's just begging louder to have some fun more than your standard stuffy gray suit.

Well, this season, thanks to high-end neapolitan menswear company Isaia, you can wear your finest charcoal and put a little flame to it at the same time.

Meet the dashing new Marechiaro Suit. Yes, that's a handsome mahogany checkered pattern that will instantly make you stand apart. And yes, those are higher armholes than you'll find on a stuffier, more traditional suit, resulting in a more tightened midsection and broader shoulders—otherwise known as the the modern, powerful silhouette.

Get the most out of this look by pairing it with the season's trendiest bold shirts: striking plaids and proud colors, all in slimmer cuts. Common wisdom says not to mix patterns, but with this beauty, feel free to break a few rules.

You'll be wearing an eye-catching gray suit. Own it.
