Is It Ok For Men To Wear Coloured Suits Such As Red, Yellow, Purple, E.t.c? by trueface(f): 4:56pm On Feb 20, 2007
most of the times we tend to comment on some absurd things that we see in female fashion these days. however, one thing always triggers my questioning spirit in men's fashion nd i'd be glad to share your opinion. please, what is your idea of the colour a man's suit should be?

shocked shocked Whattttt As in freaking wear a whole yellow ensemble? NO NO lol. I don't dig some colors on men. I have said it time and again, men stay away from the pinks tongue Red, he can probably wear but only if its like a deep maroon and not from head to toe.

You are funny lol. We have only one word for men that wear colored suits love-vendor.
Colored shirts are great but colored suits? NO!

I like black (of cos), dark brown, and dark navy blue (midnight blue).

You guys sound to me like you've never seen such but i seem to see it everyday and it sucks. especially on Igbo pastors (no personal beefs intended).

Well, actually you can use a wider variety of colours but be serious, not at all bright ones. You will look like a clown! Not to mention that the colour must fit your attitude.

There are limits though. I bet if you were to go out in a bright purple suit everyone would be staring at you and not stop laughing. You ARE NOT Snoop Dogg or something!
Re: Is It Ok For Men To Wear Coloured Suits Such As Red, Yellow, Purple, E.t.c? by zigbo(f): 8:40pm On Mar 12, 2007
i think a guy can wear wateva colour he wants eg.a lawyer will wear his black suit whereas for a love-vendor the red,yellow,purple etc suit will be jst rite for his profession etc.so if u are not a love-vendor dont go wearing those funny colours wink

men in black, blue, brown or gray suits is the PC thing, but those dark suits get sooo boring sometimes. Unfortunately, there are limited alternatives, since bright colors are definitely a nono. undecided
Re: Is It Ok For Men To Wear Coloured Suits Such As Red, Yellow, Purple, E.t.c? by lucabrasi(m): 3:07am On Apr 18, 2008
its definitely not ok,the best colour suits for men are grey/ash colour, in any shade,black,brown white only in linen generally dark colours but blazers are cool in any colour but he has to be careful with the shirt and the trousers/pants and any other acessory as its very easy to get it wrong,to get an idea just take a look at our nigerian senators especially the old men

dude i think you need to check out fashion icons ,purple blazer with black shirt and trousers ll be awesome, with a purple cravat
yellow blazer with white smart trousers, u can blend a check or dotted design cravat or tie with it
green will blend beautifully with grey pants of any shade or black shirt with a pair of smart jeans

ill get back to ya on the pink, lol
