Black suits are ok for women.  For men, it can look too funeral- or tux-like.  Better off with navy or a dark charcoal gray, IMO.

I'm certain that we concluded a long time ago that seersucker suits (for men & women) were the only acceptable interview attire...

I actually weighed that factor in my decision to leave miami for colorado.  Now I'm never going to be able to pull off a seersucker suit, damn.

One of the interns at the clinic I work at showed up in one of these. And he met with a client.

I don't think so.  As I said before, I think black is ok for women.  We have much more freedom with what we wear underneath and accessorizing, so I think it just isn't the same as a man's black suit.  I really think that for men, black suits are good for funerals, wedding, and other very formal events (not "work" events, like interviews, work, etc.)

From the Ask Andy board:
Black vs. Navy   For men black is not usually considered appropriate for business (social, funerals - yes).   Navy is the dominate power color.  Recently this has been challenged by female executives wearing black since black is such a powerful color.
