    Get one of the Harringtons on sale. If they have one that you like in your size, you're laughing. Some of them are going for UKP50!

    If you're wearing them as underwear, v-necks are absolutely traditional. Those jokes are about the hipsters and whatnot who wear them as outerwear. If you're wearing a dress shirt on top, it doesn't matter.

    And you just doubled my post count with that non-answer, not that I cared..

    Regardless, it was meant as a serious question (unless it stands for Men's Clothing - in that case I shall delete this account - troll or not - and return to just reading the forums)

    Yup, if you're wearing them as undershirts, it doesn't matter if it's a v-neck (once it's not a regular crew-neck). If you're just wearing it as a tshirt, or even worse - tshirt and a blazer, then... no.

    Any suggestions on a shirt/tie combo to wear to a "semi-formal" dinner (no tuxedos) that sticks out but isn't too gaudy with a navy suit? I'm tired of the boring white shirt blue tie look and want to broaden my horizons a little. Thanks

    If it is a semi-formal dinner then wear a white shirt with french cuffs, and a grey tie. Why broaden?

    I don't know, I was just looking for something different. I wanted to see if I could incorporate pink/purple at all. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I am sure you could, but I think it would look bad.

    Charcoal suit with brown shoes, is this as big of a no go as black and brown shoes (or vice versa for that matter)?

    I don't see anything wrong with it. Brown and charcoal are two neutral colors that go together fine for me.
