Personally I favor most of my other SC over my navy blazer because I think they are better in most of the situations where I can't wear a suit, but I understand that we're talking about people who do have, or want to have, a large collection of sport coats. For them, and especially for this list, I think the blazer is best if only because the original list specified 2 white shirts. Since then the shirts have been relaxed and pale blue has been allowed, but I would not want the unsub to be out there on my advice wearing an outstanding white shirt with a lovely brown SC. :shudder: I haven't yet worked out whether the whole wardrobe is more versatile (by being more interchangeable) with two white shirts than with one white one blue, but I suspect it might. I am religious, and I can't think of a formal religious event where a tie would be overkill. At least not one where a jacket would be expected. In my experience, either the tie (and even suit) are perfectly appropriate, or khakis and a button down are fine. Maybe this comes from living mostly in the southeast and the midwest.
