    I like that one too. You can probably get some more variety by doing a Google search for "wedding ties." There are definitely more wedding tie designs than I linked to, and even some things that have a lot of grey in them but are not technically wedding ties.

    Didn't know Hober has wedding ties too!

    The grenadine is definitely inappropriate -- way too casual.

    Yeah, I kind of thought grenadine was a bit more casual and better suited for lounge suits than anything more formal, but figured OP might like the texture in case I was wrong. Oh well.

    +1 on those vests. Would you consider those two pairs of pants interchangable between the outfits, Butler?

    HRH is wearing a morning suit said to have been made by Anderson and Shepherd about 15/20 years ago.

    In principle, yes! I would wear the darker ones with the morning suit to a funeral, the lighter ones at more festive occasions. :bigstar:

    Spot one mistake? His waistcoat slip is showing too much - it is only supposed to be just visible :bigstar: Like this [​IMG] Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    Damn butler after seeing that pic of you in your morning suit makes my attempt look very sloppy.

    Back to the drawing board for me.

    Wait. You have a morning coat and are thinking about not wearing it? Why on earth wouldn't you? Seize the opportunity. You look great in it!

    I'm not sure I entirely agree; I think gradations of depth are permissible. Here. for instance, is my own slipped waistcoat:

    I would say that is it mid-way between the two examples given. Although I cannot confidently date it, it is a genuine vintage article and I have not tampered with the slip placing in any way.
