Wearing grey jackets or coat with white  or tan pants/jeans in the Springs and darker colors in The Falls& Winter seasons, black pants or sports coats seem to  take a back seat at the moment, only shows up on trims, hems piping,  shoes and as some accent to colors blocking designs.  Which means you can have a choice of buying darkest grey suits instead of black color suits or pants. 

From sports coats, fur coats to t-shirts, they are everywhere and still more to come this Fall 2014.
