    I recently purchased a midnight blue, SB, shawl collar tuxedo for a couple upcoming black tie weddings. I've decided to go with cummerbund/bowtie/braces, rather than a waistcoat.

    What are some acceptable colors/combinations without looking like I'm headed to prom?

    Should the tie and cummerbund match? If so, should the braces match as well?

    What sort of combinations would work?

    I am buying my first lot of casual shirts for weekend day time wear, and so far have a blue checked, a navy with white vertical stripes, a plain white, and 2 flannel shirts,

    but i am unsure about this brown with white vertical stripes shirt:

    What are others views on this shirt for casual wear, e,g shops, cinema, restuarants, the pub, ]]

    is brown with white vertical stripes a casual shirt?
    what bottoms and footwear would go well with this shirt?

    Im 27 by the way, is this too young or old for me?

    I had made a thread but got zero responses (I hope it's not because they're inexpensive) but I was curious on people's opinions of the Clarks Goya. I need a good looking, affordable dress shoe. Is there something in this range that blows it out of the water? This is for interviews and working in a hospital

    For an interview, wear a solid color shirt. You need to be conservative, and to be honest, you need solid shirts. They go with any suit and any tie, and the point is that they're not noticed. They're a background piece that allow you to be more adventurous with the suit and tie choice. If you wear a patterned shirt and a patterned suit, unless you really know what you're doing, you need to wear a solid tie. And in the case of an interview, your shirt should be very conservative- plain white or plain blue, spread or point collar.

    Your suit choice is fine. Conservative tie- navy or burgundy, with a subtle pattern.

    This Saturday I have an outdoor wedding to go to that's just going to be a small affair and extremely laid back. I plan on wearing black shorts with a white bowling style shirt that has two large black stripes down the front on either side of the buttons.

    My question is: Are white shoes acceptable or do I need to find black ones?

    I couldn't find a nice set of upscale flip-flops in my size in time and I am panicking now since my only other options are white Adidas low-cut sneakers or black "not so classy" flip-flops at the moment. If the white shoes aren't acceptable then I'd like to know now so I can possibly run out and buy a pair of new shoes ASAP.

    Any help is appreciated.

    If you're wearing shorts already all bets are off. Wear whatever the hell looks good to you.

    You could do a navy tie.

    Please. This obviously calls for bowling shoes. Thanks for playing.

    EDIT: 3 posts in 2 years all asking if it is appropriate to wear white shoes.

    Still navy or burgundy, both white and blue shirts will go with damn near anything.

    I am in the market for basic v-neck undershirts. What color undershirts does everyone wear? I've heard a light grey undershirt will not show through a white poplin dress shirt. Any truth to this?
