Navy and grey. You want people to take notice of your work, not your wardrobe.

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.

So does the same go for interviews for black suits? should you wear a navy or charcoal suit instead for interviews?

If your interview is being conducted at night at a soiree or a funeral, you should wear black.

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.

I recommend watching this guy on youtube @The Gentleman's Gazette, he speaks a lot about formal men fashion and I learnt most of what I know thanks to him.

Black suits are for events, funerals or security guards otherwise.
