It can be done. Use your own judgment. Fashion is often contrary to style... and fashion can be fun.
It's a matter of taste. You have good taste, right? In most cases it just looks bad, unsophisticated. You're free to hold your own opinion but you might be wise to accept the conventional wisdom. If they're the same color but different textures or pattterns, it might sometimes look good. I'm trying to be generous and assume the wearer has good taste, not to mention that 99% of the time, it's done poorly or terribly. But same color and texture??? Why do you even ask?
Honestly I don't think a peacoat is too formal for a college student. When I was in college I wore that, or a vintage leather bomber jacket, in similar weather. You might try searching A Continuous Lean for ideas, or asking on the "Streetwear and Denim" forum here. "Classic Menswear" is more formal than you're looking for.
You're not really giving any context. What kind of answer do you expect? Wear what's practical for your circumstances. And anyway, how is a peacoat "trying too hard?" Is that because it's difficult to wear, or it's too formal?
It's a bit of both, as it is with everything. This is a broad question. Do you have a particular experience you want to share?
"Class is for men and swag is for boys. This hat is for what cool people wear and you can't even figure it out. So next time think before you do trolling. I implore you to do a little thinking, if that's even possible. You're just a stupid swag idiot. THIS IS CLASS. And that's all I got to say to you stupid ass haters. You don't know fashion and you don't know anything about this world! GTFOffline. Listen, log off idiots!"
I think you're all taking the wrong approach to this. It's a high school student with no indication of having done any prior research, having very much personal taste, or having any interest in or need for tailored clothes. He didn't even ask a question in his post. All this kid needs is a nudge in the right direction. If the suit fits, he'll have done well. Better to please his girlfriend, who has more interest in his clothes than he does: in other words he should wear...
You say you need some help, but you didn't ask a question. I'm sure you'll be fine if the suit fits. Try it on in the store at least a week in advance so you have time make any needed alterations.
Go for the charcoal suit, or if that's too stark for you, a medium-dark grey. Even a charcoal suit can be incredibly dapper if it fits you well, which I presume from your good experience this suit will. However a charcoal suit will never be off-putting in a professional environment, which a glen plaid or "charcoal blue" (with those bright brown buttons!?) might be, especially for a young man with a small wardrobe. You'll be very pleased with how you look if the suit fits...
You don't want to "match exactly" but you're concerned about "some rule." If you're really concerned, spend another 3 dollars on another belt. Otherwise.... it's close enough.
