    What color shirt would fit best with a gray pin stripe suit

    I found a suit I would like to purchase however, finding the right color dress shirts to go with it has been problematic. So I was wondering if anyone had recommendations on what colors work best with gray suits.
    TIA.

    You can never go wrong with a white shirt. Classic and uber-professional.

    That's what I figured, but I didn't know what other colors you can use in case variety is needed.

    In addition to white which is safe no matter where or for what purpose you're suited; yellow, pink and variations on blue -- solid, stripes, discrete checks can work.

    Also, please wear black shoes and a black belt. I hates me some brown or cordovan leather with a gray suit.

    1. NEVER buy anything yellow unless it's a Lamborghini.

    2. White

    3. Blue

    4. Purple works great with a lighter shade of grey. Pink works too. (Both of those should probably be paired with a darker colored tie of the same color or else you'll end up looking like a clown.)

    homey's right, cant go wrong with a white shirt, or a lighter shade of gray will work as well

    If you buy a grey suit and pair it with a grey shirt you better damn well have been cast in an episode of The Sopranos, if not, forget it.

    classic white or french blues are sharp.

    Nice choice with the conservative, classic-gray, pin stripe

    I'm with homey.

    If it's a dark gray (grey for the Brits) suit, most dark solid colors will look good.

    I'm assuming, but the suit might actually be a chalk stripe suit.

    Also, if youre buying off the rack, no matter how 'well' it fits, spend a couple extra bucks and go to a nice tailor and have it fitted. The chicks will appreciate that. YWIA!
