That would work, as long as your tie is darker than your shirt.

^^ No, it would not.  The red tie with pink shirt isn't a terrible idea given the choices.  The white shirt and plaid tie would be best given the choices of wearing with a dark blue shirt and lack of options.

I'll assume you meant dark blue suit :P I'm really trying to make one of the pink shirts work, as it's palm Sunday, and I'm saving my only pink tie for Easter.

If pink is a requirement for Palm Sunday, forgive my ignorance.

Not de rigeur, just thematic, and I feel like being so.

Meh, I rarely if ever wear ties. I imagine he'd get much better answers from more experienced answers. I will rephrase however, that glencheck shirt I wouldn't wear with a tie at all.

You have self-admitted limitations in your wardrobe.  why not just try and put your best suit/shirt/tie combo together when dressing?  i understand what you want to do, it just doesn't seem you have the gear to pull it off well.

I find if I only wear my best combinations, I get tired of them, and then they don't feel as good when I wear them. So, I try to mix things up, and try out things that are a little more challenging. What about this - or with the other pink shirt:

I need some recommendations on leather shoe conditioners and polishes for 4 casual shoes/boots I want to repair.

These aren't fancy brogues but casual shoes that I believe have some life left.

Everyone seems to have they're preference. I've heard people love venetian shoe cream, lexol, Obenauf. I've used a black kiwi wax on the BB boots but they're beginning to crack on top because of so much wear this past winter.

1. J Crew Boots


2. Brooks Brothers Boots


3. LL Bean Signature Oxfords


4. Doc Martens 1461 3-eye low-top(not pictures because they're currently being fixed at my shoe repairmen).

A lot people do compare it to Allen Edmonds, some say the 1880 line is the English counterpart. 

 

The Cannon is on the capital last, which according to Pediwear is true to size.

Thanks!

I ended up ordering a 7.5 and I wear an 8E or 8.5D in AE PA's which run a hair long. Should work out!

They were 175 on gilt!

@imthegroom: We have different points of view, though I can understand yours, having made similar mistakes. I've learned from experience that it's better to do a few things well than a lot of things poorly.

I agree, when the setting demands getting it absolutely right. However, just going to church is an ok time to be a few strokes of the pace. Risking failure is also a much faster way to learn anything.

It's also a way to end up looking like shit when you could've looked great. none of your options look like epic wins (not to be a dick, I can appreciate having limited options due to finances, etc). Wear what makes you happy of course. Since you've come here and asked though I thought I'd share my thoughts.

And I appreciate them. I'm not arguing; just discussing. I think the best combination with that suit is a white shirt, and one of the burgundy/blue ties, and I would certainly go that direction for an interview, or a meeting, wedding, etc.
