Need help repicking second suit color. I say repicking because I had a black pinstripe suit but had to return the jacket due to a defect. They no longer have the size I need. So as of right now I have a glen plaid charcoal suit that I love. I'm looking in to either a navy or grey suit, as well as black. I know you really can't go wrong with a navy one, but do I go with a medium or dark color navy. The suits will be worn for special occasions. If it helps at all the shoes I have right now are black cap toes, cognac wingtips and med/dark red monk straps.
Dark navy, hands down. And under no circumstances should you buy a black suit, ever (unless you're a waiter or an undertaker). If it's any value to you, the best Savile Row tailors will not even consider making a black suit. Your next two suits should be navy solid and charcoal gray solid. End of story.
