Lately I've been hitting The Tie Bar. Quote: Originally Posted by gregor Hi, Where does everyone buy their ties? I have no department stores/boutiques in my area with anything worth buying.

Be careful with Bruno Magli. I have a pair of black BM captoes that are absolute rubbish. My advice would be Crockett & Jones or Alfred Sargent. Good shoes at a fair price, though more expensive than those BMs. Try Sky Valet:

That suit actually cries out for shoes a colonial barrister would wear. Top off the costume with a white barrister's wig.
My recommendations: leather soles. Tan or lighter brown in color. Captoe oxfords or wingtip blucher full brogues. Leather soles allow you to go sockless and not destroy the shoes. Wingtip blucher full brogues are very versatile-great with a summer suit and great with jeans. Captoe oxfords are a bit more formal, but still just as versatile as the wingtips. Good luck.

That second tie is a very nice tie. I would pair it with a lighter colored suit or sportcoat. I think the knots are just fine, but it really depends on your face, of which we can't see. A wide knot can overwhelm a narrow face. For the first...
Black + khaki is rarely pulled off well. If the chinos are stone colored, yes.
