I guess we have a difference of opinion, because Taverna Tony's doesn't compare food wise to Greek islands in my opinion. I grew up in Chicago and come from a greek household and have spent many summers in Greece. Upstarter saying you would be mortified bringing relatives to a greek restaurant sounds a bit melodramatic. I do agree that many foods will taste better in their country of origin with a emphasis on fresh local product. Just curious how do you plan to...
[quote=upstarter;1200574]As someone who is Greek and has been to Greece 7+ times for months at a time, I can tell you that there is no where in LA (and probably America) that has good Greek food. Your best bet is to find a Greek friend and have him take you to his grandmother's house. Other than that, you're having mediocre food. LA yes, America no. Chicago, New York even Detroit has greek food that is great! Greek Islands as I stated in an earlier post in Chicago is...
Papa Christo's is ok for gyro. I give it a D for atmosphere. Sophie's on 3rd just east of Crescent Hts has the best outdoor setting. Food is good not great but the truth is great greek doesn't exist in L.A.. You have to go back east for the real deal, Chicago has amazing greek food. Go to Greek Islands in Greektown if you're ever there.
Both are good.
Both are very nice. White is very appropriate for the formal occassion. I would probably pass on the matching PS.
I think if you want the TaT silhouette you got it with the exception of the tappered pant. It does pull a bit but that's what the TaT look is. I don't think the shoulders look big from the front but a back shot would be good. And with the few ideas mention you should do well.

Lovely looking suit. Links 1 and 3 are most complimentary as far as the shirts go. Pairing it with a darker solid tie of navy or dark espresso brown would be most excellent. The deep burgandy tie could be nice as well. Although the suit doesn't have a strong pattern (especially from a distance). Wearing a check shirt and patterned tie could be a bit much. Textured solid are nice as well ex. herringbone. Stay away from the yellowey colors or the pinks that you included IMO.

I guess my before dinner alcohol consumption distorted my post... I am so sorry. I thought as much. No harm done. As for the tie. Honestly my first thought was to wear it with a really light colored suit and white shirt. Obviously it would be fine with a dark suit and...

The colors can be different, but the shade of the tie is always lighter than the shade of the shirt. Really, I allways prefer a darker shade tie to shirt for contrast.
