Im using Horizon for mine but im guess you want to go darker. You might try getting some color swatches from DB because sometimes they dont look the same online

I ordered the Alfred Angelo swatches, they are WAY different than online colors–the Mediterranean Blue is beautiful.  Here is a cell phone pic of the swatches, you can see how different it is, and the cell doesn’t really show the exact shade but it’s better than online.

Their swatch card was $6.  I can try to take better pics of it if you want!

Actually looking at this on my monitor, the colors aren’t exactly what the swatches are–they are deeper and more vibrant but it’s still better than the online shades.

I love the DB Marine colour. Its dark but not too dark. I find some navy fabric looks way too dark almost black. I would also suggest getting swatches from the designer or going to a store to see swatches. You can’t tell from online because every computer screen makes the colour look different.

@Ms. Dove:  I have the EXACT same problem – I think I am driving my BM’s crazy because I keep shooting down dresses based only on color. After weeks of searching, I’d say DB marine and alfred angelo mediterranian are the bests. Every other company has just seemed to deep navy or bright cobalt. Are your guys doing black suits/tuxes?

My girls are wearing DB Marine and it  is such a beautiful blue, dark enough to be dark, but light enough that you can still see that its blue and it shimmers so pretty!
