  This is where I tell you to F off right? Yep, pretty sure it is. You did give some useful responses, but I guess ultimately your snobbery got the best of you.   Not sure what I fooled you on, but I suppose you're easily fooled? Shuffle along, internet tough guy.    
Thank you Gents. You've effectively steered me from white bowtie and winged collar (the latter I had thought was a given for bowties, so thanks for that).    However...

You hit on all the reasons why I'm having remorse about not pursuing the midnight blue! Argh.
The more I think about all this, the more I regret not pursuing the midnight blue. To the poster that said the MB photographs better- totally, 100% agreed. Ugh, talk about buyers remorse.
