    As in the cut or the fabric?

    Cut. Fabric seems fine. I don't own any but my brother had a rotation of them for work. He's not as slim as me and it's fine for him, but seems like it'd take some alteration for myself, and iirc you're on the slim side too. I haven't really looked into their slim fit shirts, but their slim fit blazers aren't really that slim fit. The correct shoulder size + sleeve length slim fit cotton blend blazer has enough room around the waist to make it double breasted, so I imagine most of their stuff runs slightly baggy to fit a wider range of body types as they don't have many different sizes in general.

    So I need to wear a yellow or orange tie with this shirt for a wedding.... can anyone give me a hand on what kind of tie I'm looking for. I'm standing up in the wedding and wanted all the groomsmen to wear grey pants, a monochromatic patterned shirt and then necktie/bowtie/suspenders/pocket squares that are orange or yellow.

    P.s. I'm open to any combinations of tie/suspender/pocket square suggestions. If you guys could show me examples of styles or patterns I can find things similar, I have to keep the cost down unfortunately.

    Also I won't be wearing a jacket.

    How the hell will you be wearing a pocket square with no jacket?

    Also, tie without a jacket is STRONGLY discouraged here.

    Ouch. Are you committed to an outfit or a theme? If not you should dial it way back and more simplistic.

    Not sure if you guys read anything I said... I'm standing up in a wedding. A very laid back wedding. AND NOT MY WEDDING. I'm being told what to wear here. I'm not trying to dress like Cary Grant, I'd be dressed nicer than the groom. I was told to wear grey pants, black and white patterned shirt with yellow or orange accents. I found some now ties that I like so I think less tie is better here.

    This is saying that you're choosing all the outfits for the groomsmen.


    They read what you wrote but it seems as if you didn't. If you had said in your first post, that you were being told what to wear, the answers you got might have been different.

    For a start, you can't wear a pocket square without a jacket so drop that off the list.

    You have to wear that shirt, grey trousers and something yellow or orange. The shirt is very strong so you need to dial it back elsewhere. I'd say forget the suspenders and choose a solid light orange tie from http://www.thetiebar.com/ties?color=orange&sortBy=Newest&pgSize=96 - prices are reasonable.

    Maybe something like this - http://www.thetiebar.com/product/25113

    Linen makes it more casual as well. That's the best I can come up with, I'm afraid. Hope it helps.

    +1 on this. I'm a big fan of knit ties, so here's another option: http://thetiebar.com/product/14591

    You may be right. The shoe shadow blends in with the pants shadow, so I can't tell, but there aren't any hard lines there.

    I would suggest to the OP to spend some time poking through Allen Edmonds and a few other brands of shoes and find a pair he likes that look similar.
