Typically, funerals are solemn occasions, and they have a dress code all their own. Here's a simple guide to decoding the mystery of what to wear at funerals to make sure you project the proper image.

Black Suits for Funerals

Gents attend funerals to comfort the bereaved and pay their respects to the deceased and the surviving family members.


Being appropriately dressed for the occasion shows support, solidarity and sensitivity. Proper funeral attire for most of the English- speaking world translates to:

Other Funeral Attire Options

If you don't own a black suit, then opt for a conservative business suit in either charcoal or navy.


White men's business shirts are considered the most formal for funerals, but other conservative shades are fine too. When assembling your outfit, keep three points in mind about your appearance:

  • Arrive without show
  • Grieve without attracting undue attention
  • Bid farewell with due respect

If you are having trouble pulling together an appropriate outfit for a funeral, we can custom design almost any look or style you require. Callour showroom to set up a personal consultation today.

Montagio did a great job on wedding suits for me and my two groomsmen. Bally provided us with fantastic service and the result was definitely superior to an off-the-rack option... more »
