    I picked up a J Press York Street 2 button cotton suit. I'm down in Florida, so its summer weather already and I've got a few summer weddings coming up. I'd like to go for a Billy Reid type look and could use some direction. any thoughts on the following bow ties and shirt suggestions? I was also thinking a about a gingham shirt with a more solid bow, but I think the gingham would be less formal than a solid colored shirt.

    If it's summer, especially a wedding, choose something a bit more colourful and in more of a summer fabric?

    I like the first madras bow tie with a crisp white shirt for a hot Florida spring or summer wedding. As Ich_Dien suggests, I would be tempted to go for a bit more colorful madras as well.
