Hi guys, You helped me before with shoes and a suit, and I'm grateful, but I need just one more thing: shirt/tie ideas. This is for a wedding I'll be attending in a couple of weeks. I already have a navy suit and am getting black shoes tomorrow. What do you suggest for shirt and tie? Is a white shirt too plain? I'm a slim guy, 6' tall, southern European (oval-shaped face, dark hair and eyes, tan easily; "medium contrast" according to Flusser), 31 years old (but I look a lot younger) if that helps.

The shirt and tie depends entirely on your personal taste in clothing.  I attended a wedding this past August and wore a navy pinstripe, SB 3B suit with a pink spread collar contrasting FC shirt and a paisley burgundy tie.  It was definitely a bit lively for most of the crowd, but then again, I'd rather border on on eccentric for fun occasions.

I think that the choices are pretty wide open for something like a wedding. Since your suit and shoe choices are pretty conservative you can have some fun with the shirt/tie. I say if you have suitable dress shirt options, go buy yourself a new tie for the special occasion. A pocket square would help finish the look. By the way, make sure you have some good navy socks.

I will.... I'm just going out tomorrow to look for some decent-looking black cap toes. I'll try Nordstrom Rack first, though I doubt I'll find anything. And there's a Johnston & Murphy store by my house. Maybe Macy's....
