Anyone know a good source for a slimmer (1.5-2 inch) tweed (or tweed like) bowtie?  I need one for an event coming up and can't find anything that's both slimmer and has the rougher texture I'm looking for except for a few at the tie bar that don't do anything for me.

Disappointed that they're pre-tied, but otherwise exactly what I'm looking for, thanks.

Hi, just recently bought this suit to wear to a friends wedding, needing advice on what colour shies and tie combinations would be best for this good a more traditional dark navy suit I may wear instead of this as I'm still undecided and help would be appreciated

Try beautiesltd.com (I think that's the site) they'll do custom orders, I think.  I haven't ordered from them, just found them in my research for my wedding.

The turn might wear a garment such as that - dreadful colour, no style, really nothing going for it. Certainly not suitable for a wedding.

This was my other option, was thinking of pairing it width a very light mystard yellow the and maybe brown brogues

Second suit is much, much better than the first. For a wedding I'd favor black shoes over brown, especially if it'll be in the evening. Light yellow ties won't get much love here.

This was the tie I was thinking of getting any other suggestions ? image.jpg 153k .jpg file

Way better than the other suit. Brown brogues would be perfect. Someone else will no doubt weigh in on the tie.

Bold move going with no shirt but I'd suggest a white one.

Hey guys,

 

I have a wedding to attend tomorrow, and need some last minute advice on a shirt/tie combo. I picked up this Calvin Klein Burgundy Check shirt last night. When I tried it on, I was unhappy with the fit (too big). I also began questioning if I really liked the shirt with the suit. I may return it today and pick up a different shirt, unless there are some positive responses to this one. Any help/opinions would be fantastic. Thanks!

Buy a white shirt and be done with it. Return this one.
Burgundy check is a casual shirt not something to wear with a tie to a wedding.
