In fairness it appears that to the extent cream shirts might be worn on such an occasion, they also must be silk. Some sort of cream colored cotton shirt would not work well as a substitute.

Interesting link, I had not seen that post before, and I am a fairly avid follower of Will's blog.

Despite the provenance of the cream silk shirt as formalwear, I feel like it would have to be done right to be effective. A cream or ecru shirt on the cheap would probably not turn out as well as a simple white shirt.

Just curious, what clues let you to the judgement?

In my most humble of opinions, it is definitely NOT a rental.

It's definitely not skin-tight-#menswear fit but classic fit pants does not equate rental.

BB RTW morning coat btw, and I am definitely not a small/skinny human being.

Hey-I said you looked very dapper and debonair. The fit opinions are the kind of things only a Style Forum member would detect. I think the cut of the coat and waistcoat make you look very trim and fit. I would have liked the pants a bit less full and without so much break...maybe hemmed another half-inch.
post #401 of 1633
Ok..and frankly, I would have preferred a Half-Windsor knot too...
post #402 of 1633
Yup those details are personal choices. Not that the pants don't fit; it fits perfect at waist with proper rise. But it's not for everyone's taste. At least for me if anything trimmer they wouldn't support my upper body girth.

So what did you stuff your best man and groomsmen in?
post #404 of 1633
Dark suits of various colors, white shirt, dark colored ties. All of them wore their own suits.

All that page says is that someone out there makes cream silk evening shirts; by that logic, everything available to wear is good style :P

 

But I think the primary point there was that silk is correct, and that the particular silk they're talking about can't be dyed/bleached white.  A cream or ivory cotton shirt is still entirely out of place for black tie.
