I'm looking to get a bespoke suit in grey, it needs to be conservative enough for business meetings and potentially job interviews in future i.e. it should be the most conservative suit in my wardrobe, and I want to stick to details that won't go out of style in 10-20 years. I'd be going 2 button single-breasted, notch lapels, twin vents, 2 flap pockets. I want to get opinions on:
1 - colour. Should I stick with charcoal grey, or is mid-grey formal enough?
2 - pattern. Other than pure solid, what patterns would still be acceptable for a business/interview suit? For example, would the pattern in the photo below still be conservative enough? I work in London and want something that won't make me stand out as too casual when I have to deal with uber-conservative lawyers, bankers etc.
3 - trousers. I've mostly had unpleated flat-fronts that sit closer to the hips, and I'll be ordering two sets of trousers with the suit. So, I thought I would try one pair tailored to sit at the natural waist, with turn-ups (cuffs) and pleats. Any suggestions on what details to go for?
Just go plain solid for your first bespoke.
