Are you sure you're not thinking of a Grenadine tie? It's a specially woven silk tie, not knit, although it resembles a knit tie visually.

You can get cheap for as little as a couple hundred dollars, but if it's something you're going to be wearing over and over again consider spending a few extra to get something quality. BB's Golden Fleece is on sale for just over 1K right now. http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...lt_color=Black

I'm in Asia, so the tux I have is a bit more tailored -- just some background information.

Right now I think the safest bet is a pair of black shoes, which would also go great with the grey suit I have for work. Based on my SF lurking I'm thinking either a pair of captoes or derbies, non-square toe, and probably non-wingtip; I feel my first pair of legit dress shoes should be as flexible as possible.

Thoughts? Oh, and PS: Apparently, the style prevalent here is to have a slightly pointier tip. I think this looks a bit immature... am I right in making this assumption?

Summary: Black tie missing shoes. Want simplicity. wat do

AE Park Avenue.

I would lean towards plain cap toe oxfords (not derbies, and nothing with brogueing). This is about as formal as you can get before you get into a shoe that would be considered a "formal shoe", if you know what I mean.

+3 on AE park avenue in black calfskin. I also work in Asia. Because its so humid where I work (Singapore), I have a rotation of 5 pairs = 2 captoe oxfords, 2 penny loafers, 1 horsebit loafers, so as to ensure my shoes get enough time to air out and breathe. I actually don't own any derbies suitable for "business wear" b/c I think they are a grey area (neither too dressy or casual). But I wear suede bucks from time to time on fridays. Also I have a question: For blacktie events that I attend about 1-2 times a year, is buying a RTW worth it? If so, what is a good one for under USD 1K?

Hi,

After some bad experiences at the cleaners (involving a trashed Armani shirt), I decided to start doing my own laundry. That's working out great except that I've noticed that my iron leaves little gray smudges on my shirts occasionally. I'm wondering whether these smudges are coming from the coating on the bottom of the iron. Has anyone ever dealt with an issue like this?

Thanks.

I want a pair of tan/brown desert boots that are cheap (<$50) because I'll be beating the heck out of them on a trip I'm making. Any suggestions?

White will always work. Light colors different from blue or a very light blue.

Why do you keep spamming links to Ask Andy? Is Andy paying people to spam for him now?

I'm planning to have a tailor make tapered suit pants. I'm skinny. The leg opening will be 19 cm/7.5 inch and my question is what should the knee width be? Thanks and sorry for the possibly confusing grammar.

Suede Shoes in summer?

I see a LOT of guys on here sporting lace up suede shoes with their summer wear - even with suits.

Now, my father would tell you that this is a TOTAL tabu - but given the fact that I see so much of it out there is it fair to say that this taboo is officially lifted?

I admit I like the look and I realize that we've all been wearing suede slip ons (driving shoes and loafers) in the summer for a LONG time. And the traditional white bucks with red soles certainly are acceptable with a sport coat and trousers.

I'm just struggling with whether or not it's really acceptable now to wear lace up beige or light brown suede shoes with a summer suit.

I've heard about the rule (on this forum). However, I wear suede all year round.

I've never heard of that rule. Sounds like one you should feel free to break whenever the hell you feel like it.
