The same as that of a pocket square. Or a tie for that matter. Or a necklace, pocket watch, bracelet, earrings, or rings. Decoration.

Shirt: Sebastian Ward
Tie: Conrad Wu
Lapel Chain: Monsieur Fox

Absolutely gorgeous. Great choice on shoes too. Probably matches that tie perfectly.

Edit:
Wonder if more formal shoes would've been appropriate, but I don't care that much and still think it looks bad ass.

It's what you attach your watch to when you're not wearing a vest or trousers with a watch pocket.


There are also leather lapel straps for your watch.

Who makes the shirt?

I would definitely wear more formal shoes 9 times out of 10 with a suit like this, but I got this pair of Vass fairly recently and was eager to wear them! 

 

Also it was a pretty casual wedding, for the most part, so at no point did I feel underdressed.

A lot of Brooks shirts are made there. No worries.

It also demonstrates that you can wear a larger someone else's suit and rise to that position.

Mr. Bercow is the first Speaker to sit in that chair in lounge suits.  Wonder if his wardrobe offers an object lesson in why that was a bad idea.  I'll say this for him, though--he makes PM's Question Time interesting.

He threw Dennis Skinner out for wearing what some call the "Northern Lights" look, trousers darker than jacket.

First go at wearing pleated trousers for me. A vintage pair of Brooks Bros. Country Club flannels I came across and took to the tailor. Feedback/critique more than welcome. This is a bit of uncharted territory for me.. not completely sure about the fit and profile, or how tapered I should/shouldn't had gone. Little breezy today, so it was hard to get a clean drape. Thank any and all, and I hope you all had a good weekend!
