    I am personally against shirts going untucked, but getting them shortened is a fairly common thing. If you are wearing jeans you should still be able to see about 1/3 of the back pockets.

    Unless you're buying all your shoes from the same maker and same last, you're going to have some variance. I usually wear an 11D, but have some 11.5Ds in certain lines. Nearly all my athletic shoes are 11.5, just differences in how the shoe is designed and supposed to fit.

    Pretty much have to try stuff on to be sure, unfortunately. "Too big" is mostly subjective, but you can get some idea by how the shoe is creasing (for dress shoes).

    I'm looking for a suit to wear to a wedding and given the limited budget I have, I found one at suitsupply that I liked:

    http://www.suitsupply.com/suit-brow...?start=6&cgid=Suits&prefn1=color&prefv1=Brown

    Now I would like to make a bit of a statement and go bold. What would you be able to get away with, with a suit like this? As the suit already has a pattern, I do not really know what you can do with the shirt and tie. Any suggestions?

    I'll second this. I've never seen an untucked long sleeve shirt that looked good, they all look like you're trying to hide a paunch or just resented the fact that your mother made you tuck your shirt in. Casually or not. If you insist, shortening is certainly possible, and you'll look less stupid.

    The only time untucked shirts look good is when they're short sleeved sport shirts, flat hemmed or short, and being worn with shorts or swim trunks. Preferably at the pool or beach.

    And before you call me an out of touch old man or something, I'm in my mid 20's.

    What about if you're going to a club?

    I don't go to many clubs, but I would still tuck my shirt in. You can dress casually without untucking your shirt, you know. Wear the oxford with jeans, but tuck it in and wear an interesting belt.

    To avoid looking like a douche. Tuck it in.

    I would only wear the shirt out if it was meant to be worn out, i.e. no long, "unfinished" tails.

    Just a suggestion. But unless other people are going to be going a little "bold", you may not want to. Remember wedding are about the bride and it is not considered good taste to dress up in a way that takes attention away from the bride.
    You can wear a pattern like this. but probably not in those colors. You should stick to a gray, navy, brown, or even a black as it is a wedding, but with not such accent colors.
    Not to mention matching shirts and ties to this would be difficult. I can't really think of much besides what the model is already wearing.
