I'm going to be graduating on May 11th from college.

Donning the usual black cap and gown, I was thinking of wearing a white shirt and red tie along with my dark gray Boss trousers. After commencement I could just slap on the jacket and get ready to party. :>

Is the white shirt and red tie too political candidate? At least it's a dark gray suit and not navy. :>

Yea, the outfit is a little dry. Anytime a plain white shirt is paired with suit, it almost always sucks all the stlyle and flair out of the suit. If you still want to go with white, then make sure it has some color pattern woven in.

It's a Boss shirt, french cuffs, cotton but it is textured, with awesome buttons. I noticed the shirt because of the buttons, I don't know if they are mother of pearl but they are not plastic. The buttons are the kind that don't show the stitching on the outward face. What color tie would you suggest?
This is me taken about a year ago.

Ties I would suggest with a shirt like that: hmm ... stream of consciousness: yellow normally, but you're asian and yellow ties don't look as good against the darker asian skin and hair so I'd stay away from yellow, something not to colorful, maybe a muted light blue tie, or a dark navy, or even some thing in the dark purple range. here are some ideas: http://www.bluefly.com/product....r&from= http://www.bluefly.com/product....r&from= http://www.bluefly.com/product....r&from= http://www.bluefly.com/product....r&from= http://www.bluefly.com/product....r&from= http://www.bluefly.com/product....r&from= http://www.bluefly.com/product....r&from= http://www.bluefly.com/product....r&from=
