Men's Wool Suits
Charcoal Suit, Men
Charcoal suit jackets certainly
can be worn with other things, but you're right, you do have to be
careful. Can you let me know your husband's age and size? The last
thing I want to do is recommend unsuitable attire!
Also, have you checked with a
tailor that the pants cannot be altered? Most charcoal suit pants
can be either let out or taken in by up to 1 3/4 inches if done
properly, and of course the hems can be altered to charcoal suit
length as well.
Ok, the dark charcoal subtle
pinstripe, this is where the importance of your husband's age
comes in! I would recommend using this for an informal/formal look
and teaming it with a smart pair of jeans, and a formal work shirt.
Matching this jacket with a pair
of formal pants will be nigh on impossible, but matching it with
jeans and going for a casual yet still smart look is easily done.
What you have to do is think about the accessories. As I said, a
nice oxford shirt in either a pale charcoal or white, along with a
pair of smart jeans and then a black belt and black shoes, either
plain oxfords or perhaps a pair of suede loafers even.
For the glen plaid, this can be
matched into something more formal and worn almost as you would a
sports jacket. Pants will have to be dark, plain and pleated. I
would recommend dark charcoal pants, and brown shoes and belt. In
terms of shirt and tie, you can't go far wrong with a white shirt,
and then a tie that brings out a bit of the color in the glen plaid,
so a tie with a hint of red in would go nicely.
If you are looking for a more
western interpretation, then you can find charcoal suits with a
mandarin influence, or perhaps a Nehru style charcoal suit which
fuses Indian themes within the charcoal suit style. I would avoid
the white shirt/black tie routine, it'll either make you look like
you're going to a funeral, or going to carry out a hit on someone!
What you need for interviews is
something safe, but also nice and smart. You can't go too far wrong
with a pastel charcoal ( cotton shirt with tie that has
gold/yellow/charcoal in it. Alternatively a lilac shirt with a tie
that has a combination of purple/charcoal in it works well.
A general rule of thumb that I
advise is that the darker the shirt, the lighter the tie color to
lift it. The opposite of that works too, i.e. if you're wearing a
very light shirt, then a heavier colored tie is good.
I say go ahead and buy the
charcoal suit. It sounds like a winner. There are always a lot of
questions asking whether or not a
double breasted charcoal suit is hip and I say it can be. It's a
classic look that will never go out of style - although, sometimes
the look is more "in fashion" than others. However, because this
charcoal suit is a classic it tends to look better on men and not
young men or teens.
