    The law firm where I clerk is having their Christmas party early in December that is going to be formal dress (but not tuxedos) so I need to move on getting my suit ready.

    Currently I have a dark navy suit and a black with a thin grey pinstripe, but they don't exactly fit anymore. Curse sitting in an office all day. I am wanting to get a third suit in grey or a lighter earthtone.


    First Q: Is a grey suit okay for a Christmas party or dark colors only for winter time?

    Second Q: Should I get the suits altered or get a new dark colored suit so I have two sizes to choose from? :o

    Thanks in advance!

    how light is the grey? i for one have never followed the dark for winter, light for summer thing. i just wear what looks good or appropriate for the situation :)

    when you say that your suits done fit anymore, do you mean they're too small? tailoring is kind of like a haircut...easy to go shorter/smaller, but not really the other way around

    if your dark suit doesnt fit anymore at all, i'd say get a new dark suit - an essential for every wardrobe ;)

    I was thinking of a grey suit similar to Tom Cruise's suit in Collateral: [​IMG]

    The pants have gotten tight due to my desk job. :o
