Need accessory and tie help for my wedding suit please.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

After much research here, I decided on a black Hart Shaffner Marx suit for my wedding..

 

shoe, a black plain Johnston & Murphy.

 

For the shirt, a Brooks Brother's white, no pocket French cuff.

 

I haven't decided on a tie yet though, so I need some help. The wedding "colors" are blue & silver, so I was thinking of a silver / silverish tie. Something fancy. So, suggestions? I'm 31 years old, if that helps.

 

I need a pocket square also...

 

I also haven't yet decided on the cufflinks. For my watch, I'll most likely be wearing an Omega Seamaster Professional (2254.50) that's stainless and black.

 

Also, what are the thoughts on a tie pin, bar, or collar bar. Thoughts on those?

 

So I guess I have a lot to pick.

Welcome to Styleforum.
You didn't specify the suit fabrics or textures (if any). I'll use a plain black suit from this manufacturer as a reference point....



With the watch you have in mind (inappropriate in my opinion) you are best to stay with silver or stainless steel cufflinks. Wear an off-white linen pocket square. A nice midnight blue velvet bow tie may be an option....


(pictured -Lanvin)

....thusly giving you a James Bond -like appearance....


Congratulations on your upcoming wedding and may you have many happy years together.

Read the section in styleforum 101 on wedding ties. Don't wear a pin or bar or watch to your wedding.

Thanks for the replies. I did read the Styleforum 101 and didn't see where it said not to wear a watch. I've always been a huge watch guy so while I don't mind it necessarily, it would be hard to go without one.

I don't think that's in SF101. It's not that everyone will think you're a bad person if you wear a watch. But (very) traditionally its considered somewhat rude to wear a watch with black tie as it indicates you're looking forward to the host's event ending, or you have somewhere more important to be. It's the early 20th century equivalent of wearing a blackberry strapped to your belt. I know you're not going to be in black tie but the same principles apply. It's your wedding, what else do you have going on that you need to be sure to be on time for?

Ah ok thanks. I have a watch collection because I like the art / style in them, but I do get what you're saying.

There's nothing wrong with having a watch collection and appreciating it - I'm not against watches in general, but I am against them in the evening, and in particular at events like weddings.

I see nothing wrong with wearing a slim black-faced watch to your wedding. It will be far more elegant and discreet than peering into an Iphone.

Haha, indeed. I'll keep my iPhone hidden away. Where is a good place to find an off white linen pocket square (or a white one)?

As you have not stated your location, the only applicable reply would be, wherever quality menswear is sold in your area.

Thanks, I ordered the Kent Wang and will go by H. Stockton also...I have to go to the Brooks Brothers at Lenox Square anyway, as they ordered my groosmen ties in a Navy instead of the light blue as I had requested. :)

 

One more question: I was thinking of getting some matching silk knots for my groosmen, any suggestions on affordable but nice knots? I need 7 pair.

Don't you just hate it when people discreetly look into their phones during these events.. I'd rather wear a watch.
