    What's the purpose of the third jacket front pocket (the one above the regular front pocket on a suit)?

    Is this modern? Is it conservative enough for (common theme in my posts) law firms?

    Asking bc there is third FP on the Washington suitsupply suit ( http://www.suitsupply.com/shop/1.P2778W/Suit?filter_27=736 )

    thanks .

    Someone just pick for me I can't decide...

    You only have enough money for 2 Hober grenadines, which 2 of the following 3 colors do you choose?

    Navy, Burgundy, Black

    navy, burgundy.

    Black ties are for funerals, grenadine is not.

    Nothing wrong with a black grenadine, though if I were only choosing two colours I would also choose the navy and burgundy.

    I would not wear them, but some people can pull those off with a sort of a campy look.

    Oh my, who am I to argue with a random blog?

    Black ties with a dark colored suit are associated in the general culture with funerals. Unless you want to spend all day saying "no, I'm just wearing a black tie" or have people looking at you weird, I don't recommend wearing a black tie. This link might as well be an argument for bringing back spats or the ascot.

    If he's pairing a black tie with something else, like the blog's tan suit or something "sartorial" he's obviously not at a point where he needs to ask for advice on the beginners thread.

    I would wear them the shoes on the left on the Amalfi coast if I was driving an old Aston Martin with no socks.
