Hey man, I know its SF dogma to hate on black...but I don't see an issue with this. It is one of my best fitting jackets, and it is only being worn in the evening (in fact it is after 6 now and I still don't have it on) to an event.
If I had the same jacket in a different fabric, I might pick that...but at this point the lighting will be such that I couldn't tell if you were wearing black, navy, or charcoal.
edit: although at the same time, to the dude with the recruiting day events...don't wear a black suit because everyone else is...that's dumb. I mean if its your only suit, then go for it...although you could probably just not wear a suit. I've been to a bunch of those things in college and I doubt I would care if someone wasn't wearing a suit. Might even make you more memorable amongst the sea of bros in black suits.
