Are you guys characterizing the suit I posted below in the category of 'light gray'? I think I picked out a shade of gray at the tailor that is clearly beyond the 'charchoal' category but I don't think it's the near-white light gray you guys are describing.
I always think of a medium gray suit as like that of an IRS or boring government man... I really hope I don't end up looking like a Gucci boy wearing one. I know it all depends on the cut of the suit, but I'm really afraid, because I'm young-looking, that I'll end of looking like a high-school band member or sports-banquet dude if I get a dark colored suit. I'm going to be a lawyer in a really small town, where none of the other lawyers I bet will even be wearing tailored suits, if even matching jackets and pants. I'm getting this thing tailored in Tokyo, and the tailor seems to be quite knowledgable about what consitutes 'British-style', something I dont think I'd find for this cheap price (around $400) in the US. Anyway, I haven't bought it yet so someone stop me if I'm making a disastrous choice here.
