Grey Suit, Black Shirt, Black Tie

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I'm considering wearing a lovely, grey, italian suit with a black shirt and black tie. What do people think? I think it looks good but I've not seen much of it around.

Thanks

It sounds a bit tacky to me (the black tie on black shirt part) but if you can pull it off, great. Black dress shirts are a bit too "clubwear" in my opinion.

(1) Black shirts are for clubbing only.
(2) The black tie/black shirt with a suit is not a good combination. Look for some lighter colors.

I actually agree that this can be a good look, but it all depends on what you are doing.

Clearly this is certainly not a conservative business style because it can all too easily come off like a wanna-be mobster, nightclub owner or strip club bouncer.

Also the black tie with black shirt may look a little too much like Regis in the early days of Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

A bit more information about you, where you are located and the setting in which you will be wearing this outfit would be helpful in determining whether or not it would be appropriate.

These are the images that enter my mind.

You would be viewed as:

1) wannabe gangster
2) fry's electronics sales clerk
3) car salesman

if you are going for the hip look, go black on black with different textures/materials and a white belt.

I would not wear the combo, but that's just me.

This is what immediately came to my mind:



The suit, tie and shirt - along with the wearer - are all Italian.

Would you be concerned if I suggested that I was considering get married in this outfit?

I live in the UK and am fed up with boring old morning suits. Regular suits with white shirts that you wear every day to the office. Where's everyone's sense of adventure?

a) we are not that adventurous.

b) neither is your outfit. That is is pretty much what every 20 year old has thought looks really slick for quite a while. If you were planning on wearing that to go clubbing, I would say go ahead. Your wedding pictures will be around for a long time. I suggest that you wear an outfit that will not look dated and trendy when you look back on it in a few decades.

I've seen that look around for years, and never have I seen it look good, sorry. No, it's not an adventure to wear this combination... I'd rather call it a mistake. For your own wedding, I'd stick to the traditional. At the least you can look at it 10 years from now and won't feel embarassed.

What does your fiance think?

As others have said, this is probably not appropriate attire for a wedding.
