Suits

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I could do with a new one. Should I go grey or navy blue? I've been watching TV today (the news, PM questions and the football) and everyone seems to be wearing blue at the moment.

Should I buy this or this? The second one is 100% wool, which theoretically means it's better quality, but I reckon the slim fitting one might suit me better, because I'm skinny myself. What does everyone reckon?

    I'd go for the grey out of those two.

    I hate blue suits :(

    Like the first one, don't like or dislike the second one- it's just there.

    Blue suits are horrible. I will never understand how people can wear them.

    I also really like that grey one.

    The grey one for sure. It's more classic and trend-wise, will last longer than a blue one.

    Well blue is very in this season but the second suit looks more black to me? maybe it's my screen. Anyway, I'd say the first one because that seems to be the majority. Although I'm not sure why people hate blue suits so much. Can't you try them on?

    Blue suits are for bus drivers!

    Blue restricts what you can wear with it - in terms of shirt/tie etc.

    Assuming it's for work that is...

    Nah, they never have my size in stock, plus we don't have a Burtons. But I've tried on suits from both brands before, so I know they'll fit (it's not as if it's a tailored designer suit or anything). Oh, and yeah it is your screen. It looks black on my work computer too, but blue on my home one. Odd. I was leaning towards the grey one personally, so thanks everyone. Oh and MOK, it's for a job interview, and then hopefully the resulting job.

    Like most people i'd pick the grey suit.

    Ok. I always consider how often I'm likely to wear it. Regularly and I go for Black/Grey because it can use several different combinations of shirt/tie. Blue just narrows those options IME.

    I saw someone in a blue suit today- I nearly laughed out loud!

    I dont like blue suits at all. I would go for the first one, grey looks much better and is much better for matching with shirts and ties.

    Oh well it turned out they didn't have the grey one in stock in my size, so I had to go to Debenhams and spend £150 on one. But I signed up for a Debenhams card (for the third time) and got 10% off. It's a black 2-button pinstriped one. It was the only suit they had in my size so I didn't have much choice. Quite nice though. It'll make me look taller anyway.

    Okay, so I get my suit back home, and the black pinstriped suit is actually a really dark brown pinstriped suit. Damn fluorescent lighting. Now I know what they were talking about on Father Ted about real black preist socks. Anyway, I don't care because it's still a really nice suit, and thanks to Doctor Who, brown is in.
