I think the 900s are shades of gray. The higher the number, the darker the gray. I have seen light gray at 950, medium gray at 970, and dark charcoal gray at 990.

Yes, I know that but what I'd like to learn is the name of that grey tone in English.

The color code doesn't actually tell you the color tone. I have 2 Isaia suits with the same color code of 950, but one is a olive grey and other is a grey bird's eye. The two fabrics have nothing in common, except being medium grey. IMO, a 980 is a dark grey.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
