I can't for the life of me figure it out. I've been looking for a staple suit for almost a year. Solid navy or solid charcoal, canvassed, 2 button, notch lapel, side-vented...for a reasonable (under $600) price. To no avail, I finally ordered a Benjamin Sartorial out of sheer frustration of searching B&S for something that fit the bill. (didn't work out due to weird fitment issue) Now I'm not a crazy hard size to find, a 40R...likely the most common if anything. I'm just lost as to why the suitmakers don't make more suits in solid colours. I understand the need for variety in pinstripes, checks, etc but why aren't the majority of suits made in staple colors? Secret conspiracy to create demand? Am I just terrible at looking? What is going on? Discuss.
