I agree with what's being said on here, though, given that its summer, a lilac or pink tie could work great with a light blue shirt.  Pastel colors are usually embraced during the summer.  As said here, if you want to go with the more conservative option, a navy grenadine tie with a white shirt should work just fine. Please feel free to visit my blog where I recent published an article on dressing for summer weddings, and where you can also find posts related to matching ties with your suits and shirts.

It's not normally my style, but it looks like a high-quality dark grey dress shirt. Can anyone help?

Thanks! I will give that a try.

If that shirt isn't from Calvin Klein, then it sure looks like a Calvin Klein shirt.

Italian clothing websites?
I tried the italian ebay site but didn't get too much luck. Any other place I can browse for italian clothings?
Thanks

There is a loose stitch/thread from the back seam of one of my jackets. Will I have any issues if I cut it?

Hi all,

 

I'm a groomsman in a wedding and have been told to "wear a vest" to set us apart from the guests.  I'm going to wear my charcoal suit pants:

And am curious what color vest (and shirt/tie combos too) would look good.  Wedding is outdoors, daytime, and will be hot (over 25-30C / 77-86F and humid).

 

Thanks.

Are you wearing a jacket, or just the pants and vest? That's an unfortunate look most of the thing, for those of us that aren't waiters or Justin Timberlake. Not much you can do I guess, but it's not really in the SF approved wheelhouse.

No jacket.  Agreed, but I'm not making the rules =)

What exactly does the description "charged cotton" mean?

They took a pile of cotton and jammed an electrical lead into it?

I bought the following Uniqlo shirt. The fabric seems great and soft, however when I'm ironing it, crinkles appear on the shirt, especially on the collars. To name a few, I have ironed BB, CT and BR shirts without much difficulty, but his particular shirt is giving me a hard time to get it ironed correctly.

About a year ago, I asked in this thread whether to keep a pair of black chelseas. Those were considered too pointy.

This is a new pair of Brooks Brothers Peal & Co. chelsea boots. Do they look okay for wearing with conservative suits, slacks, and very dark, dressy denim (I know SF prefers brown by default)?

Is there a guide to figuring out a dress belt (that gives the best bang for your buck)? The best I could make out from the forums is full grain is the ideal. And keep away from genuine, especially bonded leather.

 

Am I better off buying a belt like this

or

 

sticking with a MWH full grain belt like this?
