Is It Ok For Men To Wear Coloured Suits Such As Red, Yellow, Purple, E.t.c?

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?

K'mon folks I doubt if a guy wud rock a complete suit say red,yellow or pink suit, d fashion nw is blazers n it goes dapper in virtually all colours if its blended wt nice pants/trousers tho pink blazer is too loud 4 a guy 2 rock. However,sum suits cum in black,white,cream,blue,ash etc background n hv a touch of d loud colours wch cud b feminine buh blazers r rich n d beauty is absolute in unconventional colours. A complete set of red,pink,green n orange is a no no 4 guys,u wud even be shy 2 rock em

With formal suits, its better to stick with darker shades.

U guys mentioned ash, grey, black dark blue and brown as cool colours for guys - agreed! But you forgot that green also has shades. A dark green (forest green) suit can also look good on a guy.

, but wow, bright coloured suits! no way!

He won't just end up looking like an Igbo man or a Nolly wood actor. He'll end up looking like KOK - Kanayo O. Kanayo, one of our great Nollywood actors. For those of u who watch Nigerian movies have u eva seen KOK on a black/dark coloured suit? If u have, Please tell me. All the guy does is Pink, Yellow, Red and White Suits. O boy, na wa oh!.

I think really no go areas for men when it comes to suiting up - even for shirts - are PINK, YELLOW, ORANGE, RED and LEMON.

Nigerian brothers, beware of these colours.

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

Purple suit-------------love-vendor

Yellow Suit-------------silly

Green suit-------------OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED BRAIN TWISTED PROBLEM

Pink suit---------------- (a) COOL DUDE  (b)  GAY

ALL OTHER COLORS EXCEPT BLACK AND WHITE SUITS ARE OFFICICALLY CLASSIFIED "GAY"

COLORED SHIRTS ARE ALLOWED

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

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!

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).
