    We all have one suit, the one we go to when we have that important meeting with a new client, a big date we have been planning etc. Im not as interested in the brand of suit you prefer, but instead the style it is, and why. For me, when I have to really look my best, I invariably wear this:

    -A dark, solid colored charcoal suit, generally 3 button, rolled to the second. Double vented. In the summer its tropical wool 2 pc, in the winter a heavy weight flannel 3 pc.
    -a crisp white poplin shirt, with french cuffs.
    -solid black grenadine tie
    -Black cordovan oxfords
    -white linen pocket square

    I think I look best in this outfit for a few reasons. Im Italian, with the complexion to match. Secondly, my hair is salt and pepper. The reason I chose a very simple emsemble for my most important occassions is I think it is a mature, dignified look that commands respect. This is always helpful in the business world.

    What about everyone else? What are your go-to suits for those big occassions, and why?

    My outfit for importants meetings and presentations:

    Zegna NC suit: Navy blue with subtle pinstripes. Three-button with side-vents. Light weight fabric.

    White shirt with French cuffs.
    Silver and onyx cufflinks.
    Dark red tie with a sort of interrupted linear pattern (sorry I can't describe any better).
    Cream coloured pocket square.
    Dark brown wholecut oxfords, and matching belt.

    I know it's pretty much the standard business ensemble but that's why I like it. It looks good, and is conservative enough for almost all business encounters.
