I currently own a charcoal suit, navy blazer, a light blue and ecru dress shirt. My tailor is running a promotion and I bought a package that will give me a suit, sports coat, slacks, and four dress shirts.

I want to get myself a navy blue suit. My question is what shade of navy is most versatile and classical? I was thinking of the midnight navy, but is that too dark and too close to black? Should I get a deep navy shade?

What type of sport coat should I get? Since I own a navy blue blazer I was thinking of getting an earth toned sport coat for the fall weather. What sort of pattern and color is most flexible?

What slacks should I look for? I own a gabardine gray pair from Brooks Brothers, perhaps I should get another pair of gray?

1.  I'd say dark navy, rather than midnight.

2.  Simple tan will be the most flexible.  A plaid or check with browns as the dominant color can also be good, though it will require a bit more work to match with the rest of your outfit.  Other possibilities would be a lightweight summer jacket or something in grey (perhaps grey herringbone).

3.  Consider getting navy slacks, though grey is always good too.

I agree on the dark navy, it would be a little more versatlile allowing yearround use,  as far as the sport coat I'm in that same boat myself, With the shirts you have plus the promo deal, you can have a lot of bases covered as far as shirts to match. as far as your slacks that could be determined afte deciding your coat choice, namely color and seasonal wear, like I said, im looking a coat myself, however I have a few spring/summer ones in a light green and a cream/neutral seersucker stripe so im looking at a earth tone option too
