Formal party, no time for a tux - Page 2
Oh, and I also agree with Will when he says blue neckties are the most useful of all. I once heard someone say that blue is the colour of choice for three quarters of Italian men, considered by some to be the best dressed anywhere. http://asuitablewardrobe.dynend.com/2010/07/in-praise-of-dark-blue-neckties.html?m=1
Will's website is brilliant. Enjoy it!
There were plenty of guys in tuxedos, and they looked fine. It was the guys in suits that seemed to break every rule you all so gently identified. :)
Fit was a big one. They had really baggy suits. I never noticed that before now. There were also some incredibly bad colors. A brown suit REALLY looks bad among so many black suits and tuxes.
I have to admit, I never looked at anyone's shoes even once. Heh.
Was a GREAT party. Thanks again everyone for the advice!
