Hello,

I was wondering when a tan suit is appropriate? Can one be worn to work or for an evening out? I haven't really read much about tanned suits and I was just wondering.

Thanks

Summer or Spring mornings I think are the most appropriate for tan. Obviously you can where them at any time, but I think light browns look great in the summer sun.

The more tropical climes would extend the appropriate season of nominal summer clothing item by some number of weeks directly proportional to the nearness of the equator.

I don't think it would look out of place during a summer evening, but might on cooler autumn/spring nites.

Just please don't wear black shoes with a tan suit.
