Yes, it is appropriate for a baptism. Depending on how saturated your blue shirt is, it might not be the best tie for that combination.

You nailed it.

It's my hidden talent. In hindsight, should've put more thought behind choosing one.

The last baptism I went to, I wore a tweed suit. Most people there just wore blazers (navy or tweed) + chinos or flannel trousers (very SF of me to notice right?). I don't think there is any etiquette for baptisms today really.

Was there ever an etiquette for baptisms? Other than for the priests, that is.

post #20917 of 37405
I don't think so, it's probably the same kind of clothes you'd wear for any kind of church service (except funerals of course).

I've been to quite a number of baptisms and this is my experience as well - normal church clothes type stuff.

I hope it isn't at a baptist church. They submerge you completely. We, Presbyterians, just sprinkle a little bit of water on your head. 

 

Now let's talk about circumcision? Is there an etiquette for that? :rimshot:

post #20920 of 37405

Dear Noodlers, before we lose ourselves in a discussion about circumcision etiquette, I'd like to ask your opinion.

I recently purchased a DB jacket (my first in 30 years or so and mainly thanks to a persuasive @archibaldleach) in old fashioned navy blue serge. Classic blazer stuff, but the buttons are too dark and suit-ish for my taste. Question is, what to replace them with? Were it a SB jacket, I wouldn't hesitate to put on some brown horn or corozo buttons, but on a DB it feels not quite right. A DB blazer is perhaps a bit too formal for buttons like that. But I'm not really a fan of the gold/brass variety. I have one SB blazer with brass buttons and it spends most of its life in the closet. What do you gentlemen recommend?

Dark solid brown corozo would work IMHO. If you'd go with buttons that match the jacket too much, there is a risk of it looking like an orphan.

Funeral etiquette. You put to death the old self, and are born again.

MOP buttons

I like smoke MOP as an option.

Definitely no brass buttons unless you plan on leaving shore soon to battle the Spanish Armada - in which case, godspeed.
post #20925 of 37405
@EliodA, congrats on the acquisition. I like smoked MOP for a summery jacket but think brown horn is a better choice for F/W. Of course I also like metal buttons (a dull pewter could be interesting).
