Black, grey and navy are traditional classy picks on suit colors, suitable for business & formal meetings.

Too many suits of these colors? Looking for some alternative suit color? Darmian recommends this color highly.

Color Tan (Khaki)

A tan suit (or khaki suit) is an excellent choice for casual meetings and social occasions (like weddings).

Khaki goes into the semi-casual and casual territory; it is also the ‘outdoor’ color, a perfect choice for events held outdoors during the day time. Its lighter color also makes khaki suit ideal for summers.

Khaki suits are nice, but beware of the followings when wearing khaki suits (tan suits):

1) The Cutting Style for Khaki Suits – Italian Cuts? or British?

Khaki suits fit well with slimmer British-cuts and Italian-cuts. However, avoid comfy American cut as it is too bulky to carry suits of tan color.

2) Double-breasted, or Single-breasted?

At your preference!

Khaki suits match well with both double-breasted style AND single-breasted style.

3) What Colored Shirts Match Well with Tan Suits?

Darmian recommends either white, or light blue shirts.

The color of khaki inherently gives a fresher (young and energetic) look. Shirts of darker color will be anti-climax.
