Little Black Dress

Question: I would like to match my wife at an upcoming event. She is wearing a black dress with various shiny/silver bits etc, but the core dress is black. Is a charcoal suit for me inappropriate against her black dress? I have a black suit I could wear, but it is not quite as nice as my charcoal one. Also what shirt/tie combo would you recommend for either suit colour option. THANKS!

Reply: Why is it that we always have to match them? I have never gotten a note from a wife asking me how she should dress to match her husband. In any case, as she is wearing a black dress with silver trim, I assume that you are going to a formal event. A black suit would be the right choice. To be super elegant coordinate with a white shirt and a silver or silver and black tie.
