Wedding To Attend: Which Shirt - French Blue, Light Blue, or White

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I was invited to my friend's wedding as a groomsman... No formal dress code, but schematics is centered around lilac/purple.

Cheers Gentlemen!

Either 1 or 3. I'm not a big fan of 2.

Hm... I was leaning towards #2, since I feel that the deepness of #3's blue blends in with the deepness of the lilac.

Anyone else care to chime in?

Though nothing beats a white shirt, am leaning towards 3. The blues blend in with each other, letting the lilac shine with all the lilacs around.

 

Also, from whatever is visible, the collars on the French blue are looking sharper in comparison.

The tie pops best on the white shirt.

The top two are Borrelli, and the last one is RLPL. I'm actually quite fond of Borrelli collars.

1 or 2. Not a fan of 3, the tie and shirt are just too close.

One then two then three, are my preferences.

Go for #1, but #3 is interesting too. Just a side note but the pocket square is gross IMHO.

 

I agree with the comment about choosing the white shirt if you will be wearing black shoes.

I guess I'm in the minority on this, but I strongly prefer #2. It looks more muted and restrained than the other two, but still manages a degree of what the plebeians seem to call "pop."

 

Fix up the collar, though. Unfused and soft is one thing, but rolled-up edges and sloppiness is quite another.
