    One black, one grey, one navy, one brown and, maybe, one tan.

    Black is a priority because it works for every occasion and the jacket and trousers can work with any other jacket or trousers

      WRONG.

      Black is for forms occasions only. If you’re looking for a business suit it should be some shade of grey or navy.

        Better yet, just do charcoal through grey. Most guys don’t even look decent in navy because they have no idea what they’re doing. Black should be formal only. Lighter grey should be casual only. Navy, Brown, Tan, Green, whatever all that shit should just be avoided to be safe.

            If it were me, I’d wear anything between charcoal and medium grey but it’s safe to wear anything that’s not black or near black and not white. Lighter is fine in spring and summer. Darker is fine in fall and winter. Once I wore a blue blazer and khakis with boat shoes to a wedding before I knew what I was doing. I looked hecking terrible. I would strongly recommend you wear a suit with a tie. Take the tie off if it’s a casual affair. Ditch the jacket and roll the sleeves if it’s even more casual than that. Loafers are fine. Make sure your belt matches your loafers.

            this is pretty much me. Are there any brands you recommend in particular for a good value? I’ll pick up a charcoal suit. Makes me think of james bond

            Suit Supply suits are mediocre but they’re a good option for the prices and selection. Just get your suits tailored.

            I’m going for light gray in tropics though.

            Fine if you know what you’re doing

        You can get away with a black suit at work. You can’t get away with a brown suit jacket with navy pants at a funeral. Black has the most versatiltiy therefore is the priority for anyone looking to get their first suit.

    Why the heck every suit I can buy here is checkered. It’s like 85 to 15% ratoon checkered to non check when I look online. What the heck. Only non check brands around here are known brands like CK, Hugo and so on.

    Also, I need an advice. Should I aim for 100% wool all the time? Said Hugo suits are 50/50 wool polyester.

      A decently fitting, charcoal-to-darker grey suit is the only thing most men would need. Pair it with a decent pair of oxfords and it’ll be good for anything from a funeral to a wedding to a job interview.

      Depends on the weather. I’d say if you’re in a hot climate, something linen blend or tropical wool would be best. Otherwise go for a three-season weight.

    i want a brown suit that i can break into the individual pieces to wear more casually, where do i start? i live in a temperate climate so i can pretty much do any fabric

      You’re better off getting a brown sports jacket instead. You’re best off not wearing your suit as separates. Maybe on the rarest of occasions but not on the regular. You don’t want one piece to wear out or fade differently to the other because when you go to wear them together again it’s gonna look bad if your jacket or trousers are now different shades.
