    I suspect that you are correct - it is a dreadful nonsense as you rightly say.

    Tie sucks, looks like a solid red satin shiny finish tie-- you can do better. Other than that, looks fine to me! Feel free to swap white shirt with a white with fine light blue stripe, but nothing wrong with a clean white shirt. I will quietly hope it is a wide spread/ cutaway collar shirt.

    Here's another look/ nice take on a light gray suit-- wish your suit didn't have that stripe of cloth on the collar.

    I hope for next suit u avoid details like those-- can limit the use of the suit and combos. I'd take a very good look thru suitsupply (nearby store or online order)-- but given the ? Black ? Fabric stripes on the collar, afraid I have no good advice from my knowledge/ experience level

    You really should read a lot here before you buy anything else. You can do much, much better.

    At the risk of going off topic, what do you wear if you don't have a full rig? Or do you just not attend, despite the face that many, many others will likely be in suits as well.

    You said the stripes are black, right? You don't have to wear a black tie just because of black stripes. Just chill about it. Navy and black certainly don't clash, so wear it, and be confident that it will look fine.
    Wear a navy or red tie, not black, and brown shoes, and rock it.
