Trends come and go, and the way guys dress has evolved over the decades. One thing that's stayed consistent is menswear's color palette. A century ago, and a hundred years from now, black, white, gray, navy, and Army green remain as the foundation of a stylish guy's closet. These colors have stood the test of time in men's wardrobes, and it's nearly impossible to find a garment that doesn't come in one (if not all) of these options.

On Monday we spoke about black, and yesterday we showcased white. Today, while we're in the middle of the week, so it's time to tackle gray. While the color is now synonymous with 50 Shades, at the end of the day, the color mixes well with just about anything. From sweatpants to sneakers, gray isn't just a middle point between black and white; it's something that adds balance to an outfit, which is why it's one of the most exciting colors to indulge in.
