Half of his post is about an overcoat, half of it is about a suit. Hence my post being half about a suit, half about a coat.
A navy or charcoal overcoat is perfectly appropriate at a funeral, or any other very conservative occasion. You could make an argument for black tie, but since coats are removed once you move inside the venue, anything conservative would be fine.post #19158 of 2538112/16/12 at 12:37amI'm planning on stepping up my dress attire at work by adding a tie. I have few nice suits navy, black and charcoal gray and two pairs of Allen Edmonds PA in brown and black.
What color ties would go with these shirts? Also solid right as they're all patterned? any help would be greatly appreciated!post #19159 of 2538112/16/12 at 1:27amQuote:Originally Posted by mrBrightside

The last three seem to be more casual oxford cloth shirts. I think a silk knit tie would be best with these, in a solid colour. They're of a similar level of formality to the shirts, and will help ease you into being a tie wearer if you haven't previously worn one at work. (I don't much like the first shirt I'm afraid to say).post #19160 of 2538112/16/12 at 4:03am
totally new to shoes. are these considered a good price? and are they in good condition?post #19161 of 2538112/16/12 at 4:26amQuote:Originally Posted by acedevil
I didn't know that. In the store lighting, it was showing a a very dark blue and I guess in a darker lighting, it would be black. Anyways under the circumstances said above, (wedding at night and an important party in the afternoon, bright sunny day and a school function in the afternoon), which one would be better?
On a longer term, which one would be timeless?
What do you mean by blacker than black? A glossy black?
Also, can a tuxedo can be worn without a tie or a bow tie? I mean, in a school function, everybody is a little badly dressed. I can look sharp in a three piece tuxedo, but without a tie.
You shouldn't be wearing a tuxedo on a bright sunny afternoon. They are generally worn after dark or after 6:00. Were you asked to be a groomsman in an afternoon wedding? Either color is fine in the other circumstances. Both are timeless. Midnight blue tuxedos have been around as long as tuxedos themselves.
Blacker than black means that, in the right lighting, sometimes black gives off a greenish cast. Midnight blue does not do this, and will appear black instead of greenish.
You have to wear a bowtie. You cannot look sharp in a tuxedo without a tie. Don't do it. You seem determined to wear a tuxedo to an event where everyone is "badly dressed." Just wear a charcoal or navy suit instead.post #19162 of 2538112/16/12 at 5:14ampost #19163 of 2538112/16/12 at 6:41amQuote:Originally Posted by ericH123
Using a tape measure, 35" on me is mid thigh, 38" is just above the knee, and 44" (the longest coat Burberry makes) is just below the knee. Short trench coats seem to be the fashion right now (that's the entire Burberry Brit line), although I agree, they make you look like you are wearing a mini-dress. Unfortunately, the 44" coat only comes in gabardine and that is getting out of my price range.
Fashion comes and goes man. Do you want a real trench coat or some trendy thing? And why are you so set on Burberry then if that's the case? Are you a brand whore? Look somewhere else for a trench coat if you can't find a decent length one in your price range from Burberry.Quote:

Just got a Kent Wang grenadine from my fiance. It's beautiful, but there are a few loose threads along the edge. I'm trying to figure out whether to cut them off. I'm afraid that if I leave them they'll start snagging/pulling as I knot and unknot the tie. So anybody who has a decent amount of experience with grenadines, what should I do?post #19169 of 2538112/17/12 at 8:44am
My wife just purchased a Belvest topcoat for me in a 36, which is the size suit I typically wear (which is how I've always shopped topcoats and overcoats), but I'm questioning whether to keep it. It is light weight, unlined 4% cashmere and fits like a glove ... but ... it fits like a suit coat that comes to just above the knee. There is no way I could ever wear this coat over another jacket or a bulky sweater ... does this mean it is too small? I will be restricted to shirt + cashmere or thin merino wool sweater. The question(s) - too small? If I can't wear it on top of a suit, is it not a topcoat?post #19170 of 2538112/17/12 at 11:03am
You need to push the threads back into the tie. Ideally, you'll use a Snag Nab-It tool for this.
It's not an uncommon problem. You can read about it at http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?116941-Thread-pulls-and-serious-doubts-about-Grenadine-ties&s=cf64629e11ca2f09839795a509cbad29 . (Note - clicking the link will take you away from styleforum.)
