I recently bought a  navy blue wool, and cashmere three button sports jacket that is Donna Karan Signature. I will be going to an evening opera, and am wondering would it be appropriate to wear a white Mani French cuff shirt with a set of S.T. Dupont cufflinks, and an Alfred Dunhill regimental tie with very thin green, and red stripes on a navy blue background. Also would a matching round tie pin be appropriate? Your opinions would be appreciated.

Labelking:

Sounds like a nice outfit. Are the blazer buttons metal? Which city are you attending the opera in? Here in SF you'd be dressed perfectly, but I'm not sure about New York, DC, Boston, or Chi. I wouldn't do the tie pin simply because I don't like putting holes in my tie...But I know some of the other guys wear them- J in particular has a nice collection.
