post #63256 of 110339

Went in a store I don't hit that often and in their boutique display case, I saw this:

 

 

 

 

Thought to myself.. They want $4 for an empty Brioni box?  At least it wasn't a pile of poo branded with a Brioni... :)  Anyway, I ask the guy to see the box and I opened it up:

Looking good..  Maybe a tie / cummerbund set.. what color could it be?  Please don't be polka dots or bright yellow...

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

Okay.. burgundy isn't bad... Sold.

 

 

 

 

 

Looked at the coats and they had a couple of half-lined coats.. First one was my first Corneliani - rather casual with thin material.  In a EU 56.. a little big for me.

Wow.. this thing must be old.. the tag was falling apart...  But for under $5, I got it.

 

 

The next coat over was the exact same size - assumed it came from the same guy.  Never heard of this brand before, but the price was right and if it came from the same guy that dropped of a Corneliani, I can take a flier on it...

 

Rene Lezard Super 110s Merino - also EU 56

Oh -- side note -- I really despise ebay making me take a return for coats that "don't fit" after I list the 5 measurements... I advertise no returns at all.  $250 in two coats this week... "It doesn't fit.. so your measurements must be wrong."  Checked my notes for a typo - nope.  I asked which measurement they disagreed with.  Chirp.. chirp..    They filed a not as described.  I lost.  Ugh...

Been looking for a tux to wear in one month for a night out on St. Catalina Island for my sister and my wife's birthday. Finally found the perfect one today. Navy Blue, peak lapel, single button.

 

Question:

How should I dress it?  Should I wear a bow tie or regular tie? Should the tie be black or blue...or is another color/pattern acceptable?

Need thrift pic! Personally thing a reg tie with a tux looks weird.

Will do...but I don't think I have a shirt yet.....looking.  What sort of collar? Straight, Spread, Winged?

I personally think winged collar looks more elegant. But you can't go wrong with a spread collar. I think when you go tux, you gotta wear a bow tie.

post #63263 of 110339

I wasn't supposed to go ultra formal because there was question if the other men going would be able to pull something off. But I know my wife and sister are both wearing gowns...so, screw the other guys. It's the fucking Catalina Wine Mixer!

 

How the heck do you guys do these mirror pics all the time. Please ignore the wrinkles and the dirty mirror.

Winged w/ bow tie... depends on the color of your tux but black or midnight blue

 

What size shirt are you looking for?

I don't know if Rene Lezard gets much play here or is any good for ebay, but the only one I've picked up was of pretty good quality.

A regular tie can look ok, but it must be on the skinny side. And that's what I'd do: reg tie, skinnyish (not like 1981 leather tie skinny, just like 2.75-3) in black. "Wait, GMMcL! Black and blue?". Yes, and I'm sticking to it.
No wing collar; go standard spread point (I.e., not cutaway). Subtle ruffle or that textured thingy on the front.
That's just my vote, though.

Yeah, like the bond pic, but so the collar extends under the jacket, as its supposed to, and with a regular black silk tie, no wider than 3". Think Sinatra.
