|By visiting the Royal Palace I saw this gentelman showing his dress so I asked for a shot that he accepted gladly so I made few, it is due to his dress that meter was fooled and the rest is washed.|

'meter was fooled' - yes indeed. This is where knowledge of your camera can save the day!
I don't shoot a lot of dark colour subjects, but with light subjects such as snow or sand it's wise to over compensate by about a factor of 1. I don't know the Lumix but I'm sure you can adjust the exposure through the menu to go up or down from the meter.
I guess here with the dark suit, you'll need to go down - say try -1, or -1.3EV.
Another thing to look at at could be whether the camera is 'spot metering' or taking a more general exposure reading. I suspect that spot metering is working here.
Check your manual.
Salam Haji Saab.
Well Haji saab I agree with Mr.David as he already mentioned in detailed but what I like here is his black suite which gives extreme contrast.
My Best Wishes and enjoy your trip!
