I'd do a grosgrain one in a minute. Actually, I'd do a satin one too, to go with the satin on my Costume National crepe dinner suit.
Actually, for a black tie wedding I am going to this weekend, I am wearing my "thrift" black tie outfit. The Costume National dinner suit ($350, down from $1300), a long satin tie (Zegna, got it for $6 a long while back, down from $115), the black Engineered Garments belt (a gift, retail $170) , and the Dries van Noten shirt ($36, down from retail of $395 from Louis Boston), and probably an pair of simple Prada laceups (a gift, but obtained for $79, improperly marked, down from $495 at Louis Boston. They are a pretty cool design, but in terms of materials and workmanship, are probably worth just a little more than the price paid) makes a total of a total paid price of $392 (more if you include the gifts, and add $25 if you include the antique silver cufflinks I picked up), down from a total retail of... $2470. Wow, I slay. Hmmm. maybe I'll post this on the "thrift shop find" thread, although nothing was technically gotten from a thrift or consignment shop.
