  1. All the ‘black’ suits identified in Dress Like a Grownup are actually navy.

  2. John,
    Not all of them! A couple very dark navies and very dark charcoals are in the mix, but (like midnight blue dinner suits) they all resolve into shades of black on the small screen. Warm black and cool black, to be sure; but the subtleties of shade are minor in light of their overall uniformity. Which is an interesting point, actually — I’ll post this in the Dress Like a Grownup! comment section too.

    Thanks for reading, and thanks also to Men’sflair for the mentions in the Linkroll!

  3. Prediction: The artificially distressed shoes are going to be an embarrassing artifact sooner rather than later.
