Okay, so think about it – the black suit is always, always something you should have in your closet. Have you seen all the Transporter movies? That’s all he has in his closet. Seen Reservoir Dogs? Black suits. Kato and the Green Hornet? Black suits. John Travolta getting his groove on with Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction? Black suit.
How about this – a black suit can do double duty for black tie events. Hell yeah, you don’t even have to rent that tux, ya cheapskate.
Just make sure it fits you well. Like I’ve said before, get a tailor to make that suit look like a million bucks.
