Is it that you are unsure of wearing a suit and tie to the dinner or that you feel that others will notice the repetition of items?
If the former, don't worry about it - being over-dressed is far better than being under-dressed. If the latter, don't worry about it, no-one will notice things as innocuous as white or blue shirts and I doubt anyone would find fault with you wearing one of the two suits you brought with you. How many suits do most people take with them to conferences, after all?
Nice suit HF. Is that SS Soho yes?
So guys, I need your help. I'm at a conference with work, full of accountants and finance people. This is what I wore today:
It was sprung on me earlier that there is a dinner tonight that I need to attend. Its not black tie, or even particularly formal. However I only have a limited amount of stuff with me - jeans and sweater won't cut it. I do have another suit and white shirt with me, with a couple of ties. This is what I was planning to wear tomorrow:
Grey suit, white shirt, brown tie.
These are the other two ties I have with me:
Now, the question is, what should I wear tonight? I want to change out of what I've been wearing all day but at the same time I don't want to compromise what I'm planning to wear tomorrow. I do have another white shirt which I wore on the way down yesterday, but it is a little wrinkled. However tomorrow is a short day so I could get away with it.
Could I wear today's light blue shirt with the same suit and the tie on the right? Or should I wear white shirt for dinner, with the same tie and navy suit? I'd rather keep the grey suit for tomorrow. However I want to wear the right thing for dinner (which is not a 'formal' dinner as such, but I have nothing other than jeans as I mentioned).
