I have my rehearsal dinner coming up next Thursday and have chosen to wear a gray SC (seen below), black pants and shoes. What I haven't decided on was the PS, tie and shirt combo. I kinda defaulted to a white shirt with this jacket an pant combo, but realize that a light blue would be great, too. Not interested in pink although I know it would be nice.
Anyway, I'm new to PS's, but already have purchased a white linen one for my wedding suit and didn't want to repeat the "white linen PS" for my rehearsal dinner outfit. Below are 2 different combos I purchased of which one or both will be returned. I also thought of wearing a Grenadine type tie with a more patterned pocket square. For the record I have salt and pepper hair, I'm not sure that makes any difference. I'd like for it be very sharp, obviously, but soooooooo many choices.
Here are the Pics:
The tie is Armani and very nice, but was wondering if its a little too conservative.
The pocket square is being shown with the baby blue with white dots side. The PS has 3 different sides/shades of Blue so I have some options. I thought the light blue at least gave some contrast. I know that having dots on the tie and on PS is a "no-no", but didn't think of it at the time.
I thought the gray/black/purple tie and this PS would be a HomeRun, but I'm just not sure if it really as good as I thought it would be.
As you can see, the pocket square below has 3 different shading of Lavender so once I learn how to fold the damn thing I will have some options.
Thanks in advance, guys. This website has been a revelation for me.
