    Tomorrow I have a huge presentation, I am going to wear a dark charcol suit that has blue window pane. I have chosen either a blue on blue striped double cuff shirt (spread collar), or what I consider a more formal Eton shirt that is double cuff, white with lavender stripes (more of a pointed collar). For ties, either a sun yellow very thick woven waffle knit (structured), or a blue/green/black striped tie. Question:
    What tie, and what shirt.
    Shoes will be some beautiful MTM shoes from a small shop in bergamo, antiqued chestnut chisled toe, two eye ankle boots. (I should post a pic of them, I love them)

    i would wear a white shirt ans a plain tie as the more colors you wear the effect it will have on what people remember about the presentation is you and not the content. i also would considerwearing black shoes as well as this would be a semi formal event and better to play safe.

    but please do post pics of your shoes!![​IMG]

    I would ignore the windowpane (Unless its very bold, and somehow I dont think it is) and wear whatever you want. Generally I concern myself more with the shirt and tie than whether itll go with the suit.

    Sometimes you do have to pay attention to the suit like avoiding a yellow or cream shirt with a tan suit. I am more concerned with your tie choices. I realize that it's none of my business what ties you wear but I cant give you any opinions on stylistic harmony unless I see the shirts and ties.
