I don't/very rarely wear black, I prefer dark blue to it 99.9% of the time.

This is the standard CM line.

But then there's this...

For people who wear black, what effect do you think you achieve by wearing it?

Well there's this:

“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy - but mysterious. But above all black says this: "I don’t bother you - don’t bother me".”
― Yohji Yamamoto

But I don't think most people get so philosophical about it and I don't think there's really a need to. For me, silhouettes and styling probably take precedence over color. Some people commit to a lot of black (and or a certain aesthetic), but wearing black doesn't preclude you from wearing color/experimenting as well.

The only thing the look better in black than blue is leather.

I generally find black gets a won"out" look quicker than most other colors.

Black is cool. I want to be cool. Ergo

I assume you mean worn out - I think this is especially true for cotton. One of the many reasons the ubiquitous black dockers and black Express dress shirts look terrible IMHO.

Black wool or silk can hold up alright.

No eyelets means no speed lacing, right? Or just no metal eyelets themselves. I'd do eyelets but no speed hooks + goyser cause it's a nice touch characteristic of shoes from that region.

^^this was kind of what I was getting at supposing that black is "dramatic". Does everybody who wear black talk like this?

Yes. I hate people who wear black. I never invite them to my parties. That's why I wear orange. I hear that's the new black.

I've only seen one episode. But the 70s show girl getting naked makes me happy.

What are you expecting, exactly? There are people who will say "black is cool," and there are people who will wax philosophical on my they appreciate its virtues, such as the designers quoted above. I'm not sure I understand your approach. There are a lot of different blacks, and a lot of different fabrics. Some fade on purpose. Some don't. Some are grungy, others long and flowy, still others sharp and formal.

With regards to "people talking like this," you're coming from a forum where people refer to each other as gentlemen and talk about classic and timeless clothing as if that meant something. Do all people who "wear black" - whatever that means - talk like "this?" - whatever that means? Unlikely. Do all people who wear suits talk like Cary Grant?
