    I am going to a birthday party. I will have black trousers and pink shirt on.

    I cannot decide to match it with a black slim or a dark grey tie that's a bit wider. Which one would be bettet?

    With just the information given I can say that Skinny ties look best on men with a tall and thin frame. Stocky and short men should go with a more traditional width tie as it compliments the body frame more. If you decide to go with a skinny tie, the best patterns are solid, knit, or stripes.

    Okay, thanks. What about the colour comb? Are they both good?

    Of course! I think that is a very classy color combination and they pair well with each other! I think a tie of either black or gray would be great. So I think you are right on target with those! Have Fun!

    No jacket as it's too hot. Will wear burgundy shoes too.

    Looks bad. Only waiters do that. Better to wear a nice dark jacket / sports coat and no tie.

    Leather jacket with a tie? Still better without the tie.
