^ Yes exactly.

Even David Foster Wallace, the writer who showed up to an awards ceremony in a t-shirt and workboots because the invitation said "semiformal", played that look for laughs in his essay about the Adult Video Awards.

I dont particularly dislike the look...I think the look posted above with the grey bowtie is pretty cool. the problem is there's some sort of trend going on over here where EVERY highschooler wears a black shirt, black pants, hightops, and a bright neon tie for any 'formal' event (grad, etc). I stay away from black button-downs whenever possible now

I like JGLevitt's style. Looking at that pic again, actually it's more of a dark taupe or grey than black shirt.

^ nicely done. although what type of outwear would go well with that shirt-pant combo?

i think jason schwartzman did it well with a grey suit in darjeeling limited



other than that i can't think of any other times when i've seen black shirt + grey suit that would have looked better with different color shirt.



also i think the people who said they can pull it off should post some fit pics. not that I dont believe them, i would just like to see it done well.

Maybe so. But at the end of the evening, that is so irrelevant.

^ this.

Though mine is a Wrangler shirt. Solid, simple look. Good fit, good jeans, and some decent boots make for a great look.

Yep. Try to dress them up too much and that's when they start to look tacky.

At the end of the evening, what you're wearing is irrelevant, because you aren't wearing it anymore.
