It isn't about formality, it's about appropriateness.

You wouldn't wear a tux to a interview, would you?

A SB peak lapel is a bit flashy, not conservative.

It is flashier.

What are people's opinions of cavalry twill navy fabric as conservative business dress? Acceptable, or not?

Can midnight navy be used as a conservative business fabric, or is it too close to black?

a little off the topic post...after reading the entire thread, I can see why Manton is a highly-respected member (and sorely missed)...his posts are just hilarious and thoughtful...definitely from a perspective of a well informed/knowledgeable individual...

Are ticket pockets CBD??

I don't know what "CBD" stands for, but they're acceptable in just about every situation.

I will say "probably not," because I suspect that they wouldn't meet Manton's standards. I also suspect you could probably get away with them in a lot of places that are a notch below pure-D CBD.

Thread title. Also, it comes up fairly often, at least in some of the threads I frequent.

Which of these are most conservative SELF patterns/ weaves on a Charcoal, Dark, Mid-Grey / Navy Suit for Conservative Business Dressing? 

 

Especially for interview, new job, new formal client meeting? To err on the Safer Conservative side. 

 

Hopsack, Sharkskin, Twill, Herringbone? - Maybe Rank them with > > > ?

Herringbone would be the best and twill maybe the worst, but a normal weave without a pattern would be much better for meeting new people in CBD.
