Looks like you're going to a funeral. Also if you wear a white shirt and take off your jacket, you look like a waiter at a fancy restaurant. Navy blue, dark grey/charcoal are most common and you honestly can't go wrong with either.

People already nailed it, navy and grey. Can't go wrong here. Although, i'm not going to lie, black can do the job imo, just got to change it up with tie and shirt colour. I'm not actually too sure that people will really take too much notice if you're in black.
