Camel + grey = awesome

As previously mentioned in our discussion of navy and black, a lot of really good stuff lies at that point of low (but not insufficient) contrast. Camel tan and grey is one of those classic elegant winter pairings of two neutrals, one warm and one cool. Both of these gentlemen pull it off by wearing plaid trousers; this look has a much higher degree of difficulty if attempted without patterns or textures. It's also nice to set off with black shoes and/or other hits of high contrast.

One clarification regarding the photo on the left: wearing camel tan and grey can be very cool. Riding a fixed-gear bike, on the other hand, is never cool.
