Bankers Grey, Medium Gray, Steel Gray are all interchangeable but a medium to darker grey is also a very good starting point for men. Matches plenty of dress shirt colors, works in all seasons and here's the kicker on the Derby Corinthian we suggest...it has 4-way stretch so you can get the most out of your pants. It's comfortable, breathable and has enough of the stretch in the fabric to be as active as you are.
