Dark gray cuts an elegant look at formal events, conveying a sense of seriousness and authority. Dark gray can create a dramatic look without being too flashy, and projects calm and maturity, two traits you might be surprised to see on your little boy but which certainly come in handy at weddings, birthdays, formal dinners, and other events. Our boys dark gray dress shirts will bring out the more mature side of your little boy without losing out on his personality.
Dark gray is a very practical color for a boys dress shirt, a conservative canvas that can soften some colors and bring to the fore others. A boys dark grey dress shirt allows pastel ties, flowers, or suit jackets to pop. Dark gray helps darker colors, like maroon, pumpkin, or plum, look less severe. Almost any color, except perhaps brown, looks great when matched with a boys dark gray dress shirt.
Dark grey creates such a classic look in part because of the emotional response it causes in others. It exudes calm and security, even professionalism (or in the case of a boys dark gray dress shirt, perhaps nascent professionalism!). One associates it with growing older, with wisdom, with restraint. It is the color of compromise, and thus facilitates connections with other colors and other people.
Dark gray is also a great fit for a variety of events. Since it can play off dark or light colors, it can be worn all year long. It’s still a light enough color to be worn to a wedding, or any sort of religious event. It goes great with dark pants and dark shoes, and looks smart with or without a tie.
