    Hello,

    Got a wedding, late afternoon, into early evening, up in the white mountains of NH... not in the wedding but am wearing dark charcoal suit, with dark brown cap toes, white shirt, white pocket square, plain silver tie clip, no idea what tie to go with...

    Was thinking solid black or navy... kind of ditched the black idea beacuse I am wearing the dark brown cap toes... thinking navy might go better. But what about a silver (a shade lighter or darker than the suit)? should I stay away from stripes, dots, etc.?

    Any input is much appreciated!

    Tie clip is a no go. Black is definitely a 'no' for multiple reasons. Especially solid black.

    Silver solid is also out.

    I think navy solid becomes more difficult with your brown shoes. Belt?

    You can look on that link but note it is for black jacket. Is charcoal the same? If you feel so, I guess there you have it.

    I don't but if you stay away from black, the ideas from the link can lead somewhere positive.
    I think various patterns can work, actually better than a solid. Maybe some type of silver with a heavy pattern.
    How is the silver going to be a darker shade than charcoal? And silver is dangerous.
    Navy with white patterning might work. You will have white shirt and ps as other similar highlights.

    So i think i am going to go with a navy w/ white dots, looks good imo and goes with the white shirt/white ps.

    Two last questions:

    1. should I be doing a full windsor? (does it matter that its a slimmer tie?)

    2. which ps folding method should i go with?

    many thanks in advance
