My question comes in the form of the all important sock game. I'm fairly loud when it comes to my day-to-day work socks, and my fiance want's me to take the same course with the socks to match her pink bridesmaid dresses. So far, the only thing I can find that matches her color is pink and grey (Socks Here). What are your thoughts on the grey with the black tuxedo? I'm not sure I'm a fan.
The other option is custom socks...
Black. Anything else disrupts the line of the suit, and (1) draws attention to your feet instead of your face, and (2) destroys the height, and athleticism lent to you by the Tuxedo's characteristics.
I have not noticed anything to do with ties, but what I do think we are seeing evolving is an American tradition of grey tuxedos (for lack of another term) as day time formal attire, or at least as day time wedding attire. It'll probably take 30 or 40 years to settle itself, but I think that's where we're going. We'll also have to get out of the trend of using one of basically three current trends (suspenders/shirt/bow tie, matching vest and pants, chucks/jeans/vest) as an expression of individuality. But, it'll go, then come back in another form, as it always does.
