I have that York blue suit. The colour is dark navy/blue. In the evening, it can appear as black, but during the day, you can tell it's blue. Fabric is little stiffer than other s110 VBC fabric SS suits that I have, but it does drape well though. If you are looking for tad lighter blue, go with this one:http://us.suitsupply.com/en_CA/suits/napoli-navy-plain/P2778I.html?start=1&cgid=Suits&prefn1=styleFit&prefv1=Classic-NapoliThis fabric is soft and drapes well.
