You can search for more specific information, but I will attempt to summarize: black suits should generally not be worn for business, and should be avoided during the day. At night, some consider them acceptable. A black shirt is universally regarded as awful. It creates no contrast with the (usually) dark suit (black or otherwise), and the different-but-similar shades of black (pure black is impossible) look terrible together. They are usually worn (horribly) by people who are trying to be trendy and "fashion foward."post #11 of 339/18/12 at 1:13pmpost #12 of 339/18/12 at 1:18pmThread Starterpost #13 of 339/18/12 at 1:26pmpost #14 of 339/18/12 at 1:33pmpost #15 of 339/18/12 at 1:42pmThread Starter
