What should I know before buying a suit?

Grey or navy? Perfect. (See Bond above.) But black? Listen carefully: In a black suit, you will not look like Agent Smith in The Matrix, or Will Smith in MiB, or Harvey Keitel in Reservoir Dogs. You will look like an undertaker or a mourner. Maybe, if you’re buff, a bodyguard.

The only shirt that really works, tastefully, with a black suit is white. The only tie that really works, tastefully, with a black suit is black. Boring. No versatility.

Dandruff and dust will show up on it. Blonde hair and lint will get conspicuously stuck to it.

Black suit? Don’t buy it. Even when it comes to formalwear, midnight blue’s a better bet (black has a tendency to show up brownish under artificial light, at night — which is the only time you should be wearing a tux).
