Solid trousers will be much more versatile than anything patterned.
When is the best time to stock up on Extra slim fit BB dress shirts for the lowest or close to the lowest price possible? Just looking for some staple items - white and blue dress shirts. I heard there's a deal on the 17th in regards to dress shirts. What's the best way to claim my size before it runs out? I'm a 14.5/32. Go to the store or wait for the deal to go live on 6/17?
Black shoes are more formal, and it's a relatively formal event, so go for it. To be clear, there used to be a "rule" that brown shoes were unsuitable for business and suits, which was officially terminated about fifteen years ago. But black is still more formal and therefore safer than brown, and with brown, the lighter you go the less formal you get.
So, blue suit, black shoes it is. What colour shirt? White is OK, light blue is nicer. And I'd go with the burgundy tie - perfect. Add a white pocket square too.
