    I've never managed to like BD collars. Perhaps I secretly wish to be English.

    Green pin dot tie isn't out of place with a navy pinstripe suit, right?

    Have a last minute interview and my nice suit won't fit. Thrifted this one a bit ago and it works well enough for government work. Still trying not to look awful though...

    Xpost from WAYWT thread

    Ok gents I have a question. My Fiance and I are throwing a party for our engagement. I bought a new suit which is a blue/blue grey suit. Its a gorgeous cloth and I will be wearing a white shirt with a eggplant colored tie. I dont wear black shoes as I cringe when I see black so what color shoe would you guys recommend? The suit doesnt photograph as blue or grey a bit of a hybrid of both. I am thinking of my dark brown Vass captoes but want to see what everyone opinion would be? I could upload a pic however its a shit photo as its hard to photograph.

    Thanks!

    I would consider wearing a knit tie with a BD collar.
