    I read a while ago about wearing a grey undershirt as it will not be as visible as a white one. Not really sure about what contrast of grey works the best?

    If you must match them up exclusively one-to-one, wear the pink shirt with the navy suit, and the light blue shirt with the charcoal suit. Buy a navy knit tie from thetiebar.com to wear with both. That will keep you under 20 dollars.

    Joffre, why are you asking here and not AAAC? Whatever. Can you provide a link to the reference list you're talking about? I don't understand your question at all.

    I believe in undershirts it is usually called "heather gray". It is the lightest shade of gray. In case that you have darker skin try going with a slightly darker shade. Ideally you want the closest shade to your skin.

    Hey guys, I have tried a few other places but no one can give me an answer as to where I'd find a jacket like this one. (The guy in the middle with the officers hat)

    If anyone has a website for something like that I'd be really happy. Thanks everyone.

    Anything works in this case. A navy tie with any of those combos.

    When is it appropriate to wear brown shoes ? When can and can't you wear them? I don't own a pair yet, where should I start?

    Brown can be worn virtually anywhere, with anything except for black trousers.

    I've just bought a suit in silk and linen. The sleeves are about a 1/3" to long. Do you think that the wrinkels will make up for that, or do I have to have them hemmed?
    anyone with experience on this?

    Is silk a suitable material for a summer jacket? I thought I read it wears warm, but I seem to be seeing a lot os silk SCs for sale.
