    What is your work environment? Industry? The formality of the office and industry will play a big factor. Simply based on looks, they are in the order that I would rank them.

    Business professional office environment at the corporate office (where I am) but you must always where a suit while traveling to any of the retail locations.

    I've got Black PA's, Bourbon Strands and Merlot McAllisters currently. Next adds will be Brown Fifth Aves, Walnut McAllisters

    cheers

    The three choices you offer show a bland, corporate, sameness.
    If your business environment permits a bit more elegant
    sophistication I would opt for something like a nail head in blue
    or gray:

    Back when I was gainfully employed, I often made client calls in a gray nailhead
    suit from Chipp (Winston Tailors). And I was in the software business. Not a place
    where one expects to find elegance in dress. Nevertheless, it didn't hurt my career.

    Consider another solid in a seasonal fabric. Grey flannel.

    +1. I think a solid navy would be a better choice than the 3 you posted.

    Wow, I didn't even notice the glaring absence of a solid navy-- I must have just mentally put it there when I saw grey solids and a navy.

    Yes, get a solid navy worsted before any other suit. It's business appropriate and will serve you better than anything you currently have for weddings and evening social events.

    After the solid navy worsted, solids in seasonal fabrics.
