Black and white silk scarves. $50. Google works wonders.

I think ClermontDirect.com has one. Customer service is very good so inquire about their return policy. Might be able to order, inspect, and return if necessary.

I'd bet it's nice enough to use the two or three times per year you'd wear the tux.

And at only 14 quid, if you don't like it, you can use it to dress up your dog as the Red Baron for Halloween.

For the record, I've been perfectly happy with everything I've ever ordered from them. Except my shirt. After the first wash, the sleeves shrank so much it's now unwearable. But I'll still use CD for other stuff.

Good to know. I know there is enough room in my shirt for the sleeves and bodice to shrink, but did the collar stay true? Anyway, I probably will have it dry cleaned anyway.

This abomination came up on my Facebook news feed in an advertisement, and I think I died a little inside, so naturally I have to share it.

I think I'm fine with everything in that image except the myriad flappy pockets. The lapels are a bit unconventional, but at least they aren't notch... and I'm digging the link front.
