Thanks for the feedback, CruzAzul and WorldWideWafflz. I'll polish the bourbon and walnut and go from there.

How much do finamore shirts usually retail for? I was just in the outlet in Milan and they were selling them for 65 euros in my size. Is that a good price?

hey guys, as a follow up to my Jamaica wedding attire question. i think i am going with light grey trousers.

what material should i go with that looks smart but won't wear too warm?

also, for on top i am going with a navy blue linen blazer and a white linen shirt

where can i find a somewhat dressier linen white shirt that will look good with this outfit?

and lastly...will white bucks look really odd with this? thanks.

White bucks probably would look a little odd with grey trousers. Have you considered off white trousers or cream or even khaki? A cotton / linen mix would keep a crease but wear light as would good quality linen.

i hadn't really thought of that but those other color ideas aren't bad. you think that would work for a beach wedding? never been to a wedding anything less casual than a suit and tie.

any brands to check out for the trousers and shirt?

Off white trousers / khaki chinos and a blue blazer is about as formal as you can get in the semi-formal spectrum. Think MCC members at Lord's for the cricket or tennis at Wimbledon, Members enclosure at Henley Royal Regatta etc. - there's absolutely no chance it won't look right, especially in the relaxed settings of a beach. Whilst classic it can look both formal and stylish if done well and with the right fitting clothes.

Depends on the overall look you're going for but for trousers it'd be better PT01 or Incotex for a more youthful look. As for the linen shirts your options are more varied, yet you'll want one with a stiffer collar if you're wearing a tie.

incotex is what i am keeping my eye out for (on ebay). not familiar with PT01 but a quick google search shows they're a bit out of my price range.

im really trying to lean towards the more stylish side. so now that i have a general idea about the trousers, i need to narrow down the shirt search. probably going no tie, a few buttons open. so collar being stiff isn't mandatory.

thanks!

I live in Michigan, and my feet get cold in the winter, so I like to wear wool socks instead of the usual business dress socks. I put some on today and obviously my shoes are tighter; a bit too tight for comfort. I find myself considering buying a second set of shoes, a half size larger for winter. Am I crazy?

^ there are plenty of wool dress sock options. Check BB for their OTC wool dress socks for example (order them during sales which stack with a 25% off 3 or more promotion). Also consider thermal sock liners -- thin but warm. See terramar on amazon for example. They are silk.

Smartwool and many others offer thin wool dress socks. The Nordstrom house brand wool dress socks are pretty good and not too hard on the wallet.

^^Thanks. I'll check into those brands.
