Go back 4 weeks. I'm home for winter break, about to start my last semester of undergraduate. I know that when I get back, I need to go get myself some dress clothes for career fairs, interviews and whatnot. I'm completely ignorant of the rules of wearing suits, but I figure once classes start up again I'll look them up and then go buy myself a suit.
But just a few days after I get back, my grandfather died. My parents call me and tell me I need to get a black suit, tie, and white shirt. So I do, still ignorant of the rules. The funeral was a little over a week ago, and today I finally looked up the rules to suits. Aside from learning that mine is too big, I learn that black suits are reserved for formal occasions and nights, and are especially not for people with lighter skin and hair (which includes me) to wear regularly.
So what should I do? It's a cheap suit, so not a big loss. Should I go buy a charcoal or navy suit as well? Or just stick with black for now?
