    What would you guys recommend wearing for this function?:

    My brother's outdoor engagement party which is "daytime cocktail" attire and will last into the night. From the sound of it, its a no-tie affair but that's as far as I've gotten.
    Weather is forecast to be sunny and around 75 degrees.

    I'd like to wear this:

    Wool pinstripe navy sport coat w/yellow silk BB pocket square
    Lt blue linen shirt (no tie)
    Off-white cotton/linen trousers
    Brown AE captoes


    (The linen pants ride too low to allow for tucking in the shirt. And the wool sportcoat is going cause a sweat-fest I'm sure of it. Not sure what to do here.)

    Two questions. Does anyone know how the sizing of Viktor & Rolf jackets compares? I'm largely wondering about the shoulder size. Also, I'm looking for a white tuxedo jacket. Can anyone identify this one or something like it? Tapered (satin/sateen/silk?) shawl collar. [​IMG]

    Are the shoulder pads/cut of the shoulder on a Size 44 coat any different than those on a Size 42?

    Question about black attire. I know the general dislike of black suits on this forum but what would the opinion be on black jacket-black shirt-pink tie for a formal, evening event?

    I need a good pair of black dress shoes. I sold my only other pair of Santonis, so I'm now looking for some more. These will primarily be worn with trousers and button ups. They might see some suit wear once or twice a year, but very rarely. Which of the following do you guys think would be better? They are both Sutors from STF. I'm not sure about the toebox on the second one.....
    I think the first pair is better-proportioned and more versatile than the second pair. I've never been a fan of the moc toe, so that doesn't help, either.

    I think that kinda' epitomizes everything that elicits the black suit hate around here. It's the opposite of understated elegance.

    Q: With a cold climate in consideration, which is a better overall coat; a three quarter coat that is single or double breasted?

    what color/pattern pocket square should i rock?

    suit: summer weight light grey
    shirt: white cotton
    tie: traditional seersucker/blue

    im thinking a regular white pocket square, but would that be too matchy?

    Phat Guido wears these little flower things on his suit. I wanna say where the "pin slot" is, but I don't know the proper term for it. What are they called?

    Quick question on silk knitted ties: what's the go with the flat strip about 1/3rd of the way down on them? Should that sit at the back of the neck when making the knot?
