    Hello!

    This is my first post in this forum and I would like to ask you for some advice on what to wear to my cousin's wedding which takes place in August .

    Now what I already have is a suit. I wear suits to work regularly so I can choose between a grey and a dark blue one. I tend to go for the blue one. In terms of shirt I though I'd wear a striped one. It's mid-blue/white.

    Any suggestions for shoes? I've got brown ones and a matching brown belt. The biggest challenege for me is what tie to wear. Obviously I do not want to look boring or awkward. What I had in mind was something with green?

    What do you think? Thank you very much in advance!

    Jeremy (from Hampstead)

    Is the wedding in the evening? If it is the dark blue suit will certainly be OK. If the wedding is a daytime function, I would wear the grey suit.
    It is summer! If you want to have a tie that is not somber, take a look at my silk shantung ties- $49.50 ( www.chippneckwear.com) Both the stripe and the check will work with both dark blue and grey.

    Either dark suit will be fine, bright coloured tie as this is supposed to be a joyous occasion and unless the lawyers are already hovering should be OK.

    Always remember the old adage - 'Both the lawyers and the caterers reported it to have been a 'most satisfactory union!'
