Sorry but this outfit sounds like a mess...
Don't overdo the velvet so if you must wear a bow tie too, wear a silk one. Don't wear dark grey trousers with a velvet jacket, one is informal the other very formal. As for shoes, wear black don't even consider the brown - it's the evening not to mention brown doesn't go very well with the colours you mention.post #24543 of 3319711/14/13 at 8:25ampost #24544 of 3319711/14/13 at 12:03pmI need help I have an anniversary coming up in 2weeks and I do not know what to get my boyfriend. He buys what he wants and needs already and I would really like to give a present but everything he wants cost a lot over 500$ Or even more. I have a little saved up for maybe a SNS but he already has. Don't have enough money to buy him a pair of Carminas any ideas ?post #24545 of 3319711/14/13 at 12:11pm
Kent Wang has some beautiful mother of pearl cufflinks on his website, as well as some other really nice stuff.
And some gorgeous pocket squares as well. http://www.kentwang.com/pocket-squares
Or a beautiful, classic tie. Black grenadine. http://www.kentwang.com/grenadine-black.htmlpost #24546 of 3319711/14/13 at 2:04pm
Veremund's suggestions are good. Perhaps you can tell us what your budget is? And maybe describe two or three things he bought himself recently. If he bought a tie or shirt recently, a pocket square to pair with it is a good idea, for example.post #24547 of 3319711/14/13 at 2:22pmQuote:Originally Posted by Acrystal

Have you thought about a pair of gloves? or maybe a scarf? there are many in high quality, that sure don't cost above 500, 300 at most.
Perhaps he'll like these or something else on these sites...

You may also consider something that's not clothing, but in a related vein. A nice pen, for example. A lot of men (and women!) don't think of it these days. You see somebody wearing very nice attire, but when they need to jot some notes, out of their pocket comes a crappy little bic. A classic fountain pen or rollerball really makes a difference, especially if he winds up taking a lot of notes in his line of work. They feel better, they write better, they write much more easily- instead of having to grip hard and press, you just glide across the page. Doesn't have to be that pricy- you can spend $20 for the entry level Cross gift sets that Staples has on sale this time of year. They're nice pens, and I have one I use quite often as my primary black pen. Actually, it's the only one I have inked with black right now. You can also spend much, much more, though it's nicest if you have a real pen store locally where you can browse and feel things. There are also plenty of sites on the internet like jetpens.com, though I would google for reviews (the folks over at Fountain Pen Network are a great resource) on any particular model you're thinking about buying. Some expensive pens are really more there to look fancy and impress people, while many much more affordable pens might not be built to impress, but are well made and write really well.
On a related note, does he already have a nice leather folio? That's a good gift as well, and could make a nice combo gift. Very useful things, and if he doesn't have one, he should.post #24549 of 3319711/14/13 at 9:26pmpost #24550 of 3319711/14/13 at 11:01pmQuote:
Just about any leather goods or luggage maker should have them. Look for places that make or sell a variety of briefcases. You're probably not going to find many distressed options, these are generally made for use in fairly formal settings, but you may find textured leathers like the one I linked earlier, or ones with marbled looking hand staining. And of course, nice full grain brown leather will develop a patina over time as well.post #24551 of 3319711/15/13 at 6:29pmQuote:Originally Posted by ridethecliche
That link should help. As should this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leather
Corrected grain holds much more of a shine but feels plastic-y. Full grain is 'normal' calf leather.
I'm not good enough to evaluate based solely on the pictures, but if they're the right price for you and fit well and look good, then I'd go for it.
Thanks, I'll post pictures when I get them.post #24552 of 3319711/15/13 at 10:57pmpost #24553 of 3319711/15/13 at 11:27pmLooking for a timeless black oxford for suits and formal occasions. This will be my only black shoe in the stable. Thoughts on this offering from Carmina?
Thanks in advance.post #24554 of 3319711/15/13 at 11:33pmQuote:There are thousands of choices which would be perfectly acceptable.
Still, if you truly need a suggestion, how about a pair of silver knots, like the ones pictured below? They're a bit nicer than the silk (or faux silk) knots which are a sort of default "casual cuff link" choice for many men, yet they're by no means ostentatious. (And nearly all the time, you're better off with subtle, low key cufflinks. "Attention-grabbing" ones are usually a mistake. Similar to the situation with neckties.)
While Tiffany's sterling silver cufflinks are iconic, they do run a few hundred dollars per pair. Personally, I can recommend Jos. A. Bank's rhodium plated version, which are normally under $60, and can not infrequently be had for $20, on sale. (Rhodium is actually far more precious a precious metal than is silver, which it closely resembles, and rhodium doesn't tarnish the way sterling does.)
Again, by no means the only choice. Not even close. But you asked for a recommendation, so I provided a nice, suitable-in-a-fairly-broad-range-of-situations, affordable, non-swivel-backed recommendation. (I dislike swivel-backed cufflinks.)post #24555 of 3319711/16/13 at 1:16am
