Dark shirts do not work with ties. Period. There are some very specific looks where it can look okay, but they are few and far between, and not at all something you should attempt unless you already know what you're doing. If you're asking here, you don't. As a general rule (with very few exceptions, in my experience), the tie always needs to be darker than the shirt. That is obviously much, much easier with light colored shirts. Don't wear the navy shirt with a tie....
It's designed to be at a human scale. 0 is about the coldest you get in a temperate climate, 100 the absolute hottest. It was designed to put the human body temperature and boiling water at 90 and 200, then was modified to get freezing and frozen brine as whole numbers as well.They're both arbitrary systems. Celsius is built around the freezing and boiling of water to be part of a unified system of units. Fahrenheit doesn't try to fit in with other unit systems, it tries...
The watch doesn't matter too much, since they're often stand alone pieces, but I would switch to a brass or gold tie bar with that belt and shoes.

At a wedding with a charcoal suit? Black shoes every time. And stick to a white shirt.
I like 'em.
I've used these guys for some shell buttons for jackets a few times. Not the fastest, but the price and quality are good.
Black and cream do not go together well at all. Really, the entire outfit looks like a mess. Switch to gray chinos or slacks (corduroy in this weather is weird anyway), or keep the pants but switch to brown shoes and belt. And a shirt that isn't black.
