This question is related to a video Antonio did on black suits.

What is the difference between jetblack and regular black?

Are black suits with subtle, low-contrasting patterns, more versatile than a plain black suit? What are the limitations and tradeoffs of full black and patterned. Again, I’m talking about subtle patterns.

Also, I’m a slim,short Asian male with black hair. Is the black suit a flattering and versatile suit for my body shape? Is it a suit that I can wear to slightly less dressy professional events like teaching a university class? or is a black suit too much for teaching?
