Yes Wild Horses! Brumbies down the Bulls. Marvellous what a difference Stout Pizza and Pinot Noir taste like when your team produces a good win.

edwak ditch or change the pocket square.

Maybe a blue shirt? The pink seems OK though.

The P.S. looks like you're trying a bit hard to match it to the colours in the tie.

Also, is that shirt a Van Huesen? butbut.gif

How would i fix that?

it's for a ball that is likely to get very messy and I'm a uni student so didn't want to drop big dollars incase it doesn't end up so well haha

I definitely wouldn't wear that to a ball. Go with something classic - navy suit, white shirt, dark, solid tie, white ps

Is it not still standard operating procedure in these events to hit up the OP shops for something more classic, thus solving the money component and worry about the clothes surviving the night?

what Osiris said. wise words. if it's for a ball I'd find myself an op shop tux for $15, see if you can find a crisp white shirt with semi spread collar, a self tied bow tie and cap toes (you'll get away with it).

Its probably best described as olive with a brown caste rather than a green caste. Its the green I don't particularly like.
Like black - its black with green caste that looks the worst.
Some old pics. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I wore this out last night to see Little Shop of Horrors. I was the only idiot in the whole place in a tie. I am reliably informed by Ms fxh and daughter both with Art /Graphics background and who assure me they know their pantones - that the suit is not olive but a light latte coffee brown! Not enough green in it to be olive.

Did that myself once. Zegna Su Misura tux for $15. Shortened the sleeves and pants for another $40. Sorted. Only worn once, but still there for emergencies.

That would have been my advice 10 years ago - maybe even 5. But I cant say I've seen more than 5 or 6 Dinner Suits worth wearing in an opshop for a few years. 10 years ago you could pick from many in your size and well made and naturally seldom worn. But I would still have a look around a few opshops if I was needing a Dinner Suit. Particularly if I was young enough to get "messy" - I don't drink at all myself these days**.

** unless forced to have one or two just to be sociable and fit in.

I've met a couple of pot plants that beg to differ.

SHILLING ALERT


Small people who whinge about never finding cool stuff in op shops, desist and rejoice. I have found something to swell your shrivelled hearts and fill you with great joy.






This measures to a size 38. The pants are about 34 with the side tabs undone, and can go smaller.

It has flaws that can be concealed when wearing. If you can live with those, this is a beauty. PM me if you would like it.
