Gray Bow Ties
Although gray tends to go unnoticed and is often underappreciated, here at Fly Guy Bow Tie, we believe that gray has long deserved a place in the world of fashion. Gray is the mixing of white and black and is comprised of quite a range of different shades. There’s the dark, ashen gray indicative of a thunderstorm rolling in; there’s the faint gray of a wedding dove; and there’s the milky gray of smoke billowing out of a volcano. Gray is a building block of human existence: it’s the color of the rocks cavemen used to curate man’s first tools. Gray is also the color of time-defying cathedrals, ones that stand to last generation after generation. Similarly, a gray bow tie can serve as a building block of your ever-developing sense of fashion.

Gray has always been fashionable–it is one of the earliest colors in textile production, and can come across as metallic and steely or soft and subdued. A gray bow tie can look strong and willful, strengthening colors like pink or light yellow, but it can also soften the hardness of a color like black. A gray bow tie is dynamic because it can deliver a more masculine appeal, but it can also show your appreciation for subtlety when paired with certain colors. Let’s break this down a little further. One of the most standard pairing with gray is blue–together, they make hints toward the brewing sea storm, or of a treacherous ice field. If you’re going for a stern look, a pale blue button up with a gray bow tie will do the trick. But gray can also be playful if set against warmer colors like yellow or red. Gray is not a selfish color, so it won’t mind if you pair it with something a little more powerful–gray particularly complements rich hues like purple and even green. Because gray is not warm or cool on its own, it can be easily incorporated into outfits with any variety of color. However, it also pairs well with colors like itself. You can’t go wrong by setting a gray bow tie against white, black, tan, and even other shades of gray.
If you’re looking for a standard bow tie that will suit a variety of your needs, a gray bow tie is the way to go. Although it’s not as traditional as black, it is basically a lighter shade of black, so you’re not going to offend or insult anyone by incorporating it into a formal outfit. On the other hand, gray helps more punchy colors to level out, bringing a sense of stability to playful colors. Gray is one of the most valuable colors available, and we hope you find innovative ways to incorporate it into your daily life!
