Usually black but coming around to charcoal grey. White doesn't stay white, black doesn't always stay black...grey is always grey though.
Some of the Graf von Faber-Castells with wood bodies are quite handsome, I don't know how hard/durable they are...
Doesn't Bateman answer this question in the (book version of) American Psycho?
Can anyone recommend a source for this sort of "modern" looking paisley: That one's Zegna, but the silk on it is really not particularly good. I'm keen on the bold black lines and the stripped back look of the design, however...
That sounds worrying. See, my concern is that the cure is worse than disease almost...it will be a pyrrhic victory if the cloth is so worn or faded from the cleaning that the suit is unwearable for that reason. Thanks for the input though!
Neyus, you are a bad man...
Gentlemen, A tragedy befell me this morning, an unmarked patch of paint on the pavement led to my tripping, injuring myself and getting oil-based paint on my suit, shoes and briefcase.

I have owned a black suit for several years. It probably straddles the business/after hours divide, being peak-lapel, one button and quite a fine cloth. While I don't have any problem wearing it, and indeed they're a reasonably common sight in my profession for quasi-historical reasons (law), I'm just not enjoying it much anymore, as it restricts the range of shirts and ties I can wear, leading to the same handful of combinations. I'm toying, therefore, with the idea...
