Even if your job doesn’t require you to wear a suit, there’s a good chance you’ll eventually need a suit for a wedding, formal business event, or other fancy occasion. Of all the factors to consider when buying your first suit, color is perhaps the most important. Here are a few colors that most men choose for their first dress suit: ?
- Black: When buying your first suit, it’s generally a good idea to choose something that works for all occasions. Since black goes with everything, you can wear a black suit nearly anywhere. However, since black absorbs heat, a black suit can be a little oppressive during the Los Angeles summer.
- Grey: If you want a suit that is a little more interesting yet still versatile, you should consider light and dark grey suits. In addition to being a bit more unique and modern, grey suits don’t absorb as much heat as black suits, making them much cooler.
- Navy: If you’re the kind of man who prefers a little color, you can’t go wrong with a navy blue suit. Navy suits still have the dark, distinguished look of black suits, but with the added soothing quality of the color blue. When you buy a navy suit, you should also buy brown shoes to go with it.
- Other Colors: While you can buy another color for your first suit, it’s generally not recommended. Still, you might as well try on pinstripe, tweed, or bright-colored suits, just to see how well they complement your look. Since you won’t be able to wear these suits to many occasions, you’re probably best off saving them until your second or third suit.
