I'm having a hard time finding linen pocket squares that aren't showy. Anyone know where I can get some simplified and humble ones? I'd really like a white one with a navy blue pattern. Something like this but inverted.
As a gift from one of my grandparents, I was given a sum of money to spend on a go-to suit for business, etc. I chose this Ring Jacket navy suit from The Armoury.
Based on how it looks on my monitor, it looks lighter than midnight blue. A midnight blue fabric is going to look black under all but the most ideal lighting or in close comparison to fabric that is actually black. For example, see the dinner jacket here:
Ah, I see. Yes it is lighter than the tuxedo in your link, but is this still suitable as a "darker than average" navy?
omg i posted ages ago so I'm trying again;
Is solid grey acceptable interview attire or do I really need charcoal or navy? Considering this suit...I would wear a white shirt of course.
I've got a suit that is about that shade of blue, if I can trust the picture. I really like it, but it is dark. If I were looking for a single suit, I'd probably look for one that was a bit lighter. That said, you might pull off the dark blue with the right shirt and tie. In it's favor, you could wear it in the evening without any trouble. Also, you mention wearing it every day? That would be pretty rough on any suit. Starting out, I'm tempted to suggest you pick up 2 slightly less expensive suits (Navy, Gray). Though the Ring looks like a very nice suit.
Thanks for the helpful answer. Sorry, I didn't literally mean every day that was misleading. I have a few other suits (charcoal gray, khaki chino, light gray linen--CA weather), but I really want a good navy staple suit. To clarify, I already have this suit. I'm just deciding whether to keep it or not
I don't know this as a fact, but I think some of the confusion about "Navy" blue stems from different Navies using different blues.
