Here's me and my better half at last weekend's Philly flower show.
Here are some goofy self-pics...
Btw, after spending the good part of the month scouring this board and blacktieguide.com putting together my ensemble, I was shocked at how little effort other guys put on black ties. About 80% of the guys had clip-ons; a lot of guys had no vest/cummerbund; lots of color matching bowties with vests/cummerbunds; oxford shoes (not even shined) or even tassled loafers with a tux!
What I finally got:
RLPL Tuxedo (1B, Peak Lapel) - at a great price at a PRL outlet
PS Grosgrain bowtie
RLPL Grosgrain Cummerbund
Albert Thurston braces
Anyway, thanks to all who helped me out! The only thing I forgot was the white silk pocket square from KWang, but I left it at home.
