Blue Suit For Accounting/FInance Interviews

Hello all,

I am a third year student studying Commerce at the University of Virginia. This fall I will be interviewing for a summer internship, so it's time to buy a suit. I'm a relatively thin guy, so I decided to purchase the suit above. Unfortunately, this cut doesn't come in either Navy or Charcoal (why that is the case is beyond me). For this reason I just went with what I thought was the darkest blue and while I'm quite pleased with the fit I'm afraid it's too light.

I also purchased a darker Navy colored suit in a bigger cut, and while I'm not as happy with the cut, Unfortunately, I'm not able to link the pictures because I don't have enough internet points yet. I'll try to post a picture in the comments below.

This is a big expense and this suit will likely be the suit I'm using for job interviews next year as well. I'm interested in corporate finance particularly FP&A so I might be interviewing with either an accounting firm or with larger corporations.

So here are my questions: Is the Lazio suit in question too light? Anyone more familiar with Suitsupply tell me if their is a color in the Lazio line which is more appropriate? If not can any of you more fashion-savvy people suggest what kind of alterations I should look into for the darker Napoli suit to get a better fit?

Thanks for your help,

Perhaps I'm just missing the option, but as far as I can tell there is no way for me to add additional photos in the comments. I'm sorry.
