Semi-formal event, need your help guys. - Page 3

White shirt, black suit and dark brown tie usually works well.

uhh, do you have an example of this? black and brown is not a very typical pairing.

Trust me, it is often better than the boring dark navy tie, also I think eggplant is not great with black either.

We don't see much brown tie is because it is often quiet hard to find a plain brown tie in store, apparently most men don't like the colour.

BTW, your grey tie can also be a good choice, but should also be relatively plain.

When I attend a similar  event I wear a well fitting navy blue suit, white shirt, blue tie with white dots, black shoes and socks along with a silver tie bar, a silver watch and a tie matching pocket square.  I never feel out of place.  Works for me.

Alright guys, here's the semi-final composition. (shitty cam, sorry!)

 

 

 

 

Followed your advice and kept it classic, with french cuff white shirt and white pocket square. And black shiny patent leather shoes.

 

The tie is dark navy-ish (purple tint), though I am thinking of exchanging it for one with almost the same color, but with flower patterns (knitted into the tie, almost unrecogniizable from an average distance) instead of those dotted lines. 

Couldn't find black silk knotted cufflinks, might have to go with some white and silver ones.

 

Any remarks welcome. Thanks for everyone who's tagged in for help so far, I really appreciate it.

I do not think that word means what you think it means.

sigh, that tie knot is obnoxious and looks terrible. Spend some time practicing a 4 in hand knot or a smaller windsor.

What we have here is a lack of communication. The OP wants Scott Disdick; SF is trying to give him Cary Grant.

OP, your instincts are terrible. You need to lurk more, a lot more. Stop thinking of classic menswear as boring. It got to be classic for a reason. If you're concerned that following SF advice will make your fellow students will judge you harshly, remember that they are the worst-dressed people you will ever be around for the rest of your life. By choosing what to wear for this formal event, you have been given your one chance to rise above the pack. You won't do it by mimicking the crap clothes you see adorning douchebags.

This is my favourite tie for evenings out. And that's a well-done knot as well.
