All of my favorite items are navy....My vintage shawl collar midnight blue tuxedo, my favorite grenadine tie, my vintage Navy issue pea coat, my favorite blazer, and many other items. I am looking into a new MTM three piece navy suit from English American at the moment as well.

The rich texture and range of navy blue puts black to shame......It is sad that most people in the average world think black suits and such are more formal than navy blue. Hell even my black funeral suit has a midnight navy blue pinstripes in it because I couldn't bring myself to wear a flat black suit, even when someone dies.

Dark blues are fantastic...

Simple and naturally elegant...

They offer so many different tones .

I have 8 of them all the same and at the time so different...

Any know where I can purchase a suit around this color? Not sure if this image is enhanced. I love this royal navy.

I have to admit, the only blue I like in a suit is midnight or very dark navy. Everything else makes the man look like a big flower IMHO. But then again I don't like brown suits either. To me the only choices are light- to charcoal-grey. Just my personal opinion, I know that's very limited. To me, brown looks dated and blue looks feminine. I feel the color should come from the shirt rather than the suit itself. I realize I'm in the minority though.

It's from The Sartorialist, so I would assume it has been over saturated.

Most likely this is true...I'd say the Minnis Fresco 0520 in direct sunlight might be a good comparison.

There's also a Smith's Fimmeresco that emptym has which looks close to that color as well.

I got caught many times buying fabrics or ordering samples after seeing a picture on the net...

It is not a great idea...

But with one slight problem. Cannot seem to find one that doesn't seem to have gaudy pin stripes.

Can anyone suggest a brand that is a solid navy blue or something with very fine and/or faint pinstripes? 2-Button with vents? Also looking to spend around $400-$500. I know, not big timer here. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciative and taken to heart.

You've searched for 25 years? I hope you'll let us know when you find it.
