I wouldn't wear a knit tie with a PoW, Noodlea. Grenadine, of course, but not a knit.

Completely agree here. A loafer adds a slightly more relaxed look that is an ideal compliment to a navy blazer/grey trouser outfit. I think black oxfords with a navy blazer look a bit stuffy personally. You are wearing a jacket, not a suit. No reason not to appear a bit more sporty.

Black looks right with certain color combinations. Black is chic. It is also an ideal travel shoe since you can have it polished anywhere without concern for the patina.

Why not? I like the look.

Honestly, I don't like (or feel uncomfortable) with the way knits look. They just look like a freaking seaweed.

With the flannel PoW, it just doesn't work for me...formality clash I suppose. It definitely works with the PoW with the light blue overcheck.

I didn't like knits for a long time, Noodles. They aren't for everyone. Definitely not what you need in your business environment.

Those look great. I'm still searching for the ideal black loafer. I wish carmina made this one in black leather, it looks perfect to me:

Ha ha....interesting description smile.gif Well, each to his own. You can live a very happy and stylish life without ever owning a silk knit tie. (although it is the perfect travel tie...never wrinkles). On the flip-side, I have never owned a Grenadine.

Knit with PoW is fine, especially a flannel like Noodles' suit. Just not a very open, crunchy, seaweedy one. So, a knit that's a bit grenadinish...

I'm dropping off a few things at the tailor this afternoon. Would it be foolish not to get working button holes on the Formosa? I like them, but they're not exactly cheap at this tailor...
