    there are two people in my group getting married this year (I am one), and our MD laid out a pretty hefty reward if we wore our wedding attire to the office for a day.

    Ridicule, for cash and prizes!

    It wasn't worn to the office, it was worn to an event after. Please, everyone, try to be less daft.

    That's a hell of a rig. Great hosiery too.

    You wouldn't have to ask me twice to do that.

    I'd do it regardless...but the hefty reward should be laid out in advance. He may consider the "hefty reward" to be a salt and pepper shaker for all you know. Or better yet, you and your colleague should coordinate and wear them on the same day.

    oh it was laid out. And it is easily worth it.

    I think that's what the boss wants, and then he'll take the group out for drinks. A tux isn't the worst, my colleague would be in a gown. She is still debating it.

    First wearing of a new/first Ercole's number, shot in various exotic locales. Will eventually get proper photos up. Tie is a handblocked wool/silk blend. I think older Drake's but unsure (it was made for Jay Kos).

    that looks really good scruff. pretty much hit it out of the park on the first try. Also like your shirt collar and tie width very much, proportions on the whole outfit are great.

    +1 ... the jacket looks really well done. Ercole's did a great job.

    I'dve gone for fuller trousers but that is a personal choice.

    +1. Good lapel shape and width too, which harmonizes nicely with the collar/tie elements Ed mentions.

    Manton,

    Is that a white dress shirt you are using with your tux (or is there some kind of bib there?)
