Classic and classy. Can’t go wrong
I aim for that Beautiful cloth well cut. Nothing flashy, nothing fashionable and nothing which 'stands out'.

Won't dark blue fade as well though, or at least noticeably after a few washes?
Nope, not in my experience, black washes out far quicker. I have no idea why right enough.

I've maybe a handful of nice black Armani/Boss T's that keep their colour well, but most of the others, meh, same generally goes for jeans too IMO. A pair of good overdyed black ones will look elegantly smart with almost anything, cheap ones wash out and look tatty real quick.

Do you own any dark blue shirts? If so, do you find that they lose their colour after a certain number of washes or not at all? Thanks!

Usually, dark colours will always fade with repeated washes.
You can help by using a washing detergent specifically for darks but it can’t prevent it, just help a little

I will go with both but for casual ones I would prefer navy blue and for nightwear I would say black one.
