    I have a church wedding tomorrow at midday and would like some opinions on which of these two shirt/tie combo to wear:

    Dark grey suit, light blue micro check shirt with navy pindot tie:

    Dark grey suit, white shirt with silver/gray striped tie:

    A bit off topic, but since it's going to be a hot day (35+ degrees celcius), I plan on changing into a different suit and shirt for the reception in the evening:

    Oxford grey suit, white shirt with blue/grey/white striped tie:

    Anyway, of the first two pictures I posted above, I would appreciate some opinions on which shirt/tie combo to wear for the midday church ceremony.

    First tie, white shirt, suit is your choice. The navy pindot tie looks nice, the others are ugly.

    I agree with Sander, navy dot tie with white.

    Also, how's that VanCL shirt? I've been interested in buying one of their shirts.

    For the money, they seem pretty decent. I bought a few of them to wear to the office.

    I would go with the white shirt/tie combo. White is considered more formal, and in my opinion more appropriate for a wedding.



    Apsks wanted to know some info on the Vancl shirt.

    I picked up a number of Vancl shirts earlier this year. They were going for $10 dollars each, with free shipping. Given the price I was very impressed with the quality.

    There is one thing you have to be very careful. Vancl is a store that caters mainly to Chinese customers. As such their clothing is more suited for people who have a smaller stature. If you are a tall person with broad shoulders, and long arms, their clothing may be too small for you. Never pay attention to the size label, and always go with the measurements on the size chart and pay particular attention to the sleeve length. In North America I wear S size clothing. A couple of beautiful wool sweaters that I picked had a label size of L and XL.

    But this is also the reason why Vancl has become my favourite internet store. Given my smaller body stature, their clothes fit me perfectly. The shoulders of their shirts stop at my shoulders and do not drop down my arm. The shirts are not too long, nor are they wide at the waist. I do not get that baggy look around my belt area.
