Yes, with rolled up chinos in summertime.
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 )
^ it's called a ticket pocket...
^ thank you
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
Black ties are for funerals, grenadine is not.
What jacket/sportscoat fabric will you recommend for weather like Singapore?
Nothing wrong with a black grenadine, though if I were only choosing two colours I would also choose the navy and burgundy.
I'll take the Cements, though

1. Sorry, but no.
But if you like them, by all means wear them...
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.
