Just my opinion but black suits are for funerals and not much else. There are people who can pull it off outside of funerals, but I am not one of those people.
As an aside, I've been invited to attend three funerals in the last 18 months.
This is the only reason I'm considering buying a black suit. I've gotten away with my TaT charcoal herringbone suit (which is very dark, but fortunately not black) so far, but as I get older I see the need for a funeral suit in my future.
