From the end of the twenties, the costume becomes the universal dress of the urban man. He wears it at work and keeps it in the evening, unless he has the possibility to put on a tuxedo, the height of elegance. The suit cut from a single piece of fabric becomes the perfect outfit.
At that time, the first element that distinguishes one suit from another is the color:
Black: for the religious ceremonies,
Charcoal grey: for all occasions, especially the most formal ones
THE COLORS OF THE CONTEMPORARY COSTUME
Today, even if there are environments where these codes survive, they have largely crumbled, and are now only respected by conservative individuals.
In the professional world, anthracite grey or navy blue suits are still the most common, at least if you avoid black!
On the other hand, it is not uncommon to see frames wearing dark brown, light gray, or even olive green suits.
A time absent from the male wardrobe, the other colors have been brought back into fashion. White, beige, or cream are perfect colors for a summer suit.
With the return of good weather, we also see the flowering of light costumes, with colorful nuances.
As for very flashy colors, it's an undeniable fact: they work best with very matte or black skins; exceptions are made for eccentric personalities, for whom no suit is ever the wrong color.
