    I think a lot of people think black pants are more common than they are. I'm in a discussion on a non-style-related website that's about clothes for interviews, and one person said that black is a very common suit color in Washington DC. I think she's mistaking dark gray or dark navy for black.

      Black clothing is great evening wear. The folks who wear black the most are servers in restaurants, wedding photographers/videographers, and funeral directors. Since black is slimming, you'll also find women wearing lots and lots of black. Just look around - even at a picnic on a hot, sunny day, probably half the women will be wearing black in some form.

        "I think she's mistaking dark gray or dark navy for black."


        You can even see this phenomenon in action here as well, with many people describing the J.Crew Factory Thompson suit as "black" or "almost black". In fact, it's a very standard dark charcoal.

            @rnj: haha, that would have been a nice comeback (...and a lost volunteering opportunity).
