For an interview, wear a solid color shirt. You need to be conservative, and to be honest, you need solid shirts. They go with any suit and any tie, and the point is that they're not noticed. They're a background piece that allow you to be more adventurous with the suit and tie choice. If you wear a patterned shirt and a patterned suit, unless you really know what you're doing, you need to wear a solid tie. And in the case of an interview, your shirt should be very conservative- plain white or plain blue, spread or point collar.

Your suit choice is fine. Conservative tie- navy or burgundy, with a subtle pattern.

This Saturday I have an outdoor wedding to go to that's just going to be a small affair and extremely laid back. I plan on wearing black shorts with a white bowling style shirt that has two large black stripes down the front on either side of the buttons.

My question is: Are white shoes acceptable or do I need to find black ones?

I couldn't find a nice set of upscale flip-flops in my size in time and I am panicking now since my only other options are white Adidas low-cut sneakers or black "not so classy" flip-flops at the moment. If the white shoes aren't acceptable then I'd like to know now so I can possibly run out and buy a pair of new shoes ASAP.

Any help is appreciated.

If you're wearing shorts already all bets are off. Wear whatever the hell looks good to you.

If I go with a light blue shirt what color tie would you recommend?

You could do a navy tie.

Please. This obviously calls for bowling shoes. Thanks for playing.

EDIT: 3 posts in 2 years all asking if it is appropriate to wear white shoes.

Still navy or burgundy, both white and blue shirts will go with damn near anything.

I am in the market for basic v-neck undershirts. What color undershirts does everyone wear? I've heard a light grey undershirt will not show through a white poplin dress shirt. Any truth to this?

Is there a thread for fall/winter boots?

I couldn't find one in my search.

Love this watch (birthday present from Mrs Smudge) but not sure that tan is the best colour strap though. Thinking a darker brown, any thoughts / suggestions much appreciated?

Looking for something in the $100 something range.

Incotex sale at gilt, a bit over your budget but worth it.....

I dont like tan colored straps either but yes probably any medium to dark brown would work best for that dial, but theres really lots of choices,,,,, this place is a good value in the 30-100 range of watch straps (then theres a lot of great sites for choices in the 100+ range)

I'm liking this one for that watch,,,,,,
