>>9510778 >Black is only suitable for formal events like dinners Wrong. Black strictly has tradition as a funeral colour. If you break that tradition then you can go ahead and break it fully, but if you don't want to break that tradition then never wear a black suit to any type of dinner, only to funerals. Now with that said, there's really no reason for you to get a black suit, especially since charcoal and especially navy are so much sexier and you don't risk looking completely clueless when it comes to people who actually do know proper dress codes.
Now other than colour, what exactly would you like help with?
Here's a fairly decent video from TM Lewin on how suits should fit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4l4khCUnIM
Pic related, what colour shoe goes with what colour suit.
>>9511032 You're retarded, suits are the pinnacle of men's fashion. You can fuck right off back to your shitty threads about sneakers, backpacks and whatever new "core" is trendy at the moment. Then go ahead and post your shitty basic as fuck gray and black "average high schooler" fit with bad posture and a "I was bullied most of my life so I have no confidence" stance in the WAYWT threads.
>>9511044 Whats the point in using the term then? Being self employed also makes you a slave. Just because you can decide some things for yourself doesnt mean that youre depending on other people approving of them. Everyone is a slave. Slave to the fact that he requires money to live and needs to figure out of a way to make it.
So unless you inherit enough to never have to work a single day in your entire life youre automatically a slave to the system. The slave wearing a $10k suit sure as hell will have a better life than the one whos wearing baggy pants and is offered minimum wage, though.
>>9511041 You're the invader here, faggot. /fa/ used to actually have style a bunch of years back, but as the average 4chan user's age declined with 4chan's rising popularity you fucking kids started coming here and you've pretty much destroyed the board. Put on your god damn hoodie and sneakers and go fuck yourself.
>>9511053 You called people who wear suits wage slaves. And if we look at it from a statistical point I would go as far as claim that the average guy wearing a suit will have a higher income than the average guy not wearing one. Outliers always exist and I never claimed that wearing a suit equals being wealthy.
>>9511168 Um, yes they do. Have you never been to an actual funeral? The black suit + black tie makes you look funeral as fuck. Unless it's a skinny tie, in which case it makes you look stupid as fuck. Go ahead and buy black suits but for fuck sake stay away from the black suit + black/white tie combo.
This thread is a fucking disaster. If you're over the age of twelve you should own at least one fucking suit. Not owning one doesn't make you more "countercultural" or hip. It means you're a moron or a man child. >>9510747 Navy or Charcoal. Get a light blue or white shirt (not the button down kind, the type you need to put stays in, collar-type is a matter of preference)
As for a tie, get a repp tie from Brooks Brothers, I sure hope you know what colors match
>>9510747 Op new anon here, I'll try to help. What is the event is it special or just every day. if special - black, minimalist and tastefully tailored. if everyday than there are more options available. Like charcoal, grey, brown, black, navy and so forth.
My pic is just some supplementary data. Also unless your salary is higher than 1000 bi weekly or you have lode e mone saved up. Check out thrift stores in rich neighborhoods - than get it tailored to your shape. Tailoring is more important. Picked me up a Ferragamo 3 pc suit that was slightly used and big on me for just over 100. After tailoring total cost was around 180, not bad for what would've cost me damn near 8 times that amount.
>>9511041 Shit just got real homes. >>9511050 Yo bismuth, curb dat edge man. >>9511053 Suit=/= wealth it's more of a preconceived social questions that suit=power in anycase it's not true, but simply perception conceived by social norms. *tips cigar* >>9511062 Laughed harder than I'd like to admit. Bravo chap. >>9511168 Not even the person whose funeral your attending. black on black is simply that. >>9511261 Some people can't wear skinny ties due to body image. A fat man in a skinny tie will only make himself look fatter. The opposite is true of a skinny person in a large wide tie. >>9511276 I thought skinny ties were seasonal, not a trend. Guess I was wrong.
>>9511335 Social que - fuck autocorrect. >>9511295 In this we agree anon. young OP should check out the sticky to at least get a basic understanding of color. If rolling navy, than its mostly casual. But I'd still say a poplin shirt as it has a more professional look- which is what I'm assuming he's going for. If not roll an oxford, it's more laid back and honestly more comfortable.
Best on ops body image I'd say skinny tie is thin/lanky wide tie if more... heavyset.
Tie and belt don't HAVE to match but it's recommended 9/10 times. Put your color into your shirt, tie and socks.
The tie and socks should be more vibrant, the shirt a more subdued color. (Though a shirt with a more vibrant color and a black tie works)
>>9511353 You shouldn't even be going to a ball in a suit, you definitely shouldn't be going to a ball in chinos.
>>9511357 Navy is not a casual colour. The formality of suit colours: Charcoal = Navy > Everything else.
>>9511360 What are you even talking about? Shoes and belt should *always* match. If you wear dark brown shoes you should wear a dark brown belt, if you wear black shoes you should wear a black belt, if you wear burgundy shoes you should wear a burgundy belt etc. You shouldn't match the exact shade of i.e. the dark brown, but they should both be dark brown. There is absolutely no rule what so ever about matching your tie with your accessories, except for a possible pocket square (in which case the rule is rather to *not* match the tie and the pocket square). Preferably you should match metals to metals as well. Wearing a pair of monks with silver buckles? Then your belt buckle and your watch should preferably also be silver, but people generally aren't as autistic with that.
>>9511429 Don't sweat it. Don't lurk /fa/ for suit knowledge though, people here generally have very little knowledge of suits, business casual and that type of clothing in general. It's predominantly sneakers and black skinny jeans on here.
