Is a black self stripe suit considered acceptable formal atire and how does it compare etiquette wise with a solid black suit?
Any pattern on a suit will always be less formal than a solid color suit. The larger the pattern or the more pronounced the pattern the less formal it is, even if it is a black on black striped suit.
Unless you are at a funeral, my opinion is that a black suit is for evening wear only. I would place it as less formal than navy and charcoal grey but more formal than brown or tan. This is just my opinion though and don’t know what the actual rule is.
Of course if the black suit is a tuxedo than it would be considered more formal than all of the above.
Thank you for your response it was very helpful.
