Is this an acceptable suit color?

Is regular grey acceptable for interviews or is it considered too light?

No, it's not "too light."

You're over-thinking things.

You'll stick out. Whether it's "acceptable" is another question. All I can say is I do not own a "regular gray" suit yet.

If you have a choice, then dark grey is the better option.

The second darkest is the most conservative option.

#4 and #5 = Recommended.
#3 = Risky
#2 and #6 = WTF?
#1 = 100% Baller.
