I definetely agree with what Tobias is saying.  I would also add a pink or a lilac tie as these colors complement blue and white shirts very well, especially if worn with a charcoal grey suit.  I would also consider looking into Hermes or Ferragamo style repeating animal prints ties as those are usually quite whimsical but bring alot of flair to your outfit.  They have some beautiful repeating animal prints with dolphins, fish, crabs etc.  Thomas Pink also has a really good animal prints selection.  Sometimes these labels also carry repeating sporting goods prints like golfballs, tennis raquets, which are really aesthetic. 

 

Another thing I would watch out for (unless you are quite wide in your shoulders) is to look for ties that are between 3.25 to 3.5 inches in width.  Some labels still carry 3.75 inch to 4 inch ties, but with suits today generally being made with narrower lapels, it would look more in sync to wear a slightly narrower tie.  Hope this helps. 

Thanks for the reply, Tobias and RCAsia.

 

I'm a bit skeptical to wearing anything pink really. Pink shirts, if light pink, can work though.

 

Yes, I've been wondering about what length to go for, but I'll try to keep it in the 3.25 to 3.5 inch-range. :)

Thanks! Am I correct in thinking that these shoes are mainly for suits? No chinos, right?

Yes because they are balmorals. Bluchers are considered more informal. You might want to look into AE Del Ray, Mcneil, or another wingtip.

I'm looking for a nice pair of dark brown/chocolate colored pants to wear casually. Any recommendations?

It depends. Do you look like an idiot who doesn't understand the idea of "summer," a question which is contingent on your answer to: how hot does it get where you live?

BR gets a lot of hate on here, but I'm a fan of their chinos, and have a pair in brown I adore.

Might also want to look at Brooks Brothers chinos, they should be having a Boxing Day sale day after Christmas. By the way Left Hand, I was happy to hear you got your Howard Yount trousers and like them so far. That was quick shipping, you should have them hemmed and everything by Christmas!

Looking to buy more OCBD, usually go with Jcrew. Ordered some Uniqlo ones waiting on those to arrive. Any other brands i should be looking at that are decent fit/quality and they aren't super expensive

What do you think of this boot?

In brown or black? What do you guys think? For the price reduction I am kind of tempted to get it.

Ignore your date. Wear a pink boutonniere instead. Or a pink shirt. Pink shirts are awesome, as long as you don't get them from any store that rhymes with "Hex dress." The neon pink isn't what you want.

 

If you must wear a pink tie... actually, I'm having a hard time finding a pink tie that I like. http://www.samhober.com/grenadine-grossa-solid-silk-ties/pink-silver-grenadine-silk-tie-25.html This, maybe?

thanks.

 

i can't think of a pink tie combo that i truly like and is formal enough.

 

if i wore a pink shirt what would you suggest for a tie and suit colour? i find it hard to think of something that is formal enough again.

Anyone able to identify the year of this Zegna jacket? Is it recent or old stuff. What concerned me is the off white Zegna brand label inside the jacket, which I never seen before.

Sorry if the pic is too big I'm on iPad now don't know how to resize.
