One of my favourite looks is a black suit, stark white shirt with perhaps a stripe, tan waistcoat, and a nice deep red tie and complimentary pocket square. Black and red offset each other beautifully and make for a very dramatic look. I used to have a double breasted black wool suit that I absolutely loved. I grew out of it in my late 20's much to my shock and dismay.
Here's a shot of me and the missus on our 5th anniversary, me wearing a black tonal stripe suit with peak lapels. I no longer own the suit, which is a bit of a long story, but I don't think I look very funereal. I would have worn my homburg, but alas the wifey hasn't gotten used to that one yet ^.^
