If I am wearing shirts unbuttoned (the top button that is), it would have to be a button-down shirt with single cuffs. I also have never liked wearing button-downs with ties and only like to wear wide spread collars buttoned up with a tie. However, I have only been posting here for a while (reading for much longer) so take that for what you will.

Don't know... it never really occured to me. Hopefully it's nice weather, I might have my beige linen-cotton sports jacket ready by then, just need to take the sleeves up half an inch and have some nice MOP buttons sewn on.
Mate, if you're going to spend five hundred quid, don't get a black suit! It's not a colour you want in a suit unless it's only used for funerals. Charcoal is the darkest you can go. If you really want something black to wear to a ball, get a dinner jacket and the accompanying trousers (and all the rest of what goes with that). However, if you simply want a nice suit, there are some options. Marks and Spencer is said to be one of the best-value off-the-rack suit...

I'd like to think that, if I got to the point where I was cracking jokes about the shoe preferences of people in a country 4,000 miles away, I would find a new way to occupy my time (perhaps I'd take a up a hobby). One doesn't 'find time' for that sort of thing, it's just a cross-cultural joke...
Morning dress.

First of all, it is spelt 'yea' and not 'yay'. Secondly, brown shoes are not allowed to be worn with charcoal, medium grey or navy trousers.
Topic. If someone says they are selling a 'tester' that comes in a plain box with no ID, is there any way I can tell if it is a legit Creed GIT or other fragrance? Is it worth taking a chance?
