One more observation: One of the more plausible arguments against black for daywear is that it looks dull in daylight - yet nowadays, pretty much all suit wearers spend their whole day in offices with artificial lighting, under which (according to the same argument) black looks good.
i rather wear a charcoal or navy myself, yet i alternate black suits in, and blacks with pinstripe. I think it's just because the average person wears black, and "lesser jobs" like security etc. and an over-fanaticism to be different. you can learn alot about style and dress ettiquette on the forum overall. but at the same time take advice with a grain of salt ie childish avatars, childish remarks ie pics!! everytime the word boob, or girl is mentioned even if they are stated to be underage. I'd rather commit a fashion mistake, than an unforgivable social faux-pas.
