STALLIONBSPOKE - 9 suit colors that should be in your wardrobe

A man’s wardrobe is never complete without a quality suit. Tailor made suits are often expensive. People working in Dubai need more than one suit especially those who are working in the business sector. Finding a quality men’s tailor in Dubai is the first priority of anyone who wants high quality tailor made suits. Here is a guide on which suits to buy first when you are on a limited budget and building a wardrobe.

Every business suit adds a personal statement to your image. Some colors are more useful and versatile than others. The following list starts with the most useful and versatile to make a prioritized budget. Here we are talking about colors only, it is entirely up to you to choose whether you want a suit in pen stripes or solid colors.

Navy Blue & Charcoal

It is difficult to rank the top order between these two colors. In some parts of the world, both of these colors are ranked above black and a must-have for any man who wants to fit in and be recognized for himself.

A charcoal grey suit will add maturity to the younger man while a navy blue suit makes people look younger. Both of these suits are very easy to match and go along with almost all kinds of shirts and ties.

Medium Grey/Cambridge

Grey has many shades when it comes to suits. There is a marked difference between charcoal grey and medium grey. Cambridge grey suits are not as formal as charcoal grey and is considered a top priority in Europe when you are building your wardrobe. Tailor made suits in these three colors mentioned will already make your wardrobe very versatile.

Light Grey

Light grey is the color of spring, summer and fall. It goes very well with sunny climates. For business class men in Dubai, a light grey suit will be a must have. Any men’s tailor in Dubai will have a variety of shades in grey. Lighter color means it is very easy to introduce patterns like checks or pin stripes into the suit as they will be more visible.

Black Suit

Men would think that a black suit is a must-have for their wardrobe. Yes it is, but not for everyone. A black suit goes well for people with darker complexion and dark hair and it does not look flattering on men with lighter skin tones and light hair. A black suit is also limited to only formal occasions like dinners, weddings and other black tie events. It is never considered to be a very good choice for business suiting.

If black is your color, you can visit your men’s tailor in Dubai and choose a pin striped black suit or a check one for every day office. But to build a good wardrobe, you will be needing a true black suit.

Dark Brown

Just like a black suit, dark brown is not versatile as the other colors on this list. It will look good on men with darker complexion and hair. Now we are in the bottom part of the most desirable colors so caution is advised. Dark brown is not a formal color, never wear a brown suit to a formal event or places where business suiting is taken very seriously.


Just like a brown suit, a tan/khaki suit falls under the same category. It is not a formal color. A khaki suit may be appropriate for formal lunch or a suit to wear during summer. But it is not the color to wear during afternoon events.

A khaki/tan suit is more versatile in adding colors to the shirt and tie. Any type of solid, checked or stripped shirt would look good with it.

True Blue and White Suits

When you enter the shop of a men’s tailor in Dubai, these two colors will always be on your mind. For men who are working in the corporate sector, both of these colors are a serious NO. Do not wear them in the office. A true blue sports jacket might slip under the radar but a white jacket will never. In some parts of the world such as Europe or North America, true blue suits don’t score high because it is not as formal as the navy blue.

White on the other hand is a strictly formal color and has limited occasions to be worn on. Wearing a white suit draws attention to oneself. It can be ideal for formal parties or when you are making a speech or a presentation but do not wear it at the office.
