Can I wear a Fly front shirt with a waistcoat

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am getting married and have picked out a 3 piece light tan linen suit and will be wearing a white shirt with a light coral bow tie.  My question is in regard to what kind of shirt to wear.  I like the look of a fly front shirt but am not sure if it would go with a waistcoat.  Any input would be greatly appreciated.

the shirt will look best with a standard placket front.

fly front will look odd

I thought fly-front shirts were pretty much for tuxedoes exclusively. Am I mistaken in this?

I would say a fly-front shirt can be used anytime you're wearing a bow tie, whether during the day or in the evening. I recall (from my childhood) the British writer and humorist Frank Muir often wore a bow tie and fly-front shirt.  On TV.

Hi,

 

I'm moving your thread to the menswear advice forum, where this type of question and answer thread is more suited.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

the standard fly front will not balance with the bow tie.

you could do a placket fly front.
