    This is my first post here so be gentle...

    I'll be attending the baptism of my daughter in a weeks time and I've decided on wearing a dark grey, single breast, double vent, 2-button, wool suit with my brown Allen-Edmonds wingtips. I was thinking of wearing a white shirt with either a blue/white stripped Burberry tie or a pink/white stripped Burberry tie. However, I think that they both look a little informal for the occasion. Any thoughts or other suggestions?

    Cheers,

    Barry

    First off congrats on the baptism. Second off congrats for wearing brown shoes. The whole ensemble sounds fine to me. Style Forum members will be nice to you since you chose grey over black. I'd add a pocket square though.

    +1 Congrats as well. Sounds nice and not inappropriate at all. But yes adding a pocket square as Shark said would be better.

    I'd go with pink for a little girl.

    And cordovan goes nicely with pink too.
