    Holiday party this week, considering wearing my black with close and definite pinstripes. Thoughts on appropriateness?

    it depends on the cut of the suit and on your accessories. sounds like a cool fabric though, and i have a feeling you know what you're doing.

    Relatively stylish cut, 3 button, side vents, etc. from Burberry. I was thinking an open collared white shirt, or perhaps a white shirt and solid black tie.

    sounds good to me. fwiw, i wouldn't wear the same shoes that you might wear to work, especially if you go with the tie idea. ditch the wingtips.

    [​IMG] @ the black tie. nice. have fun. would a black tie w/white dots be inappropriate for whatever reason?
