    I picked up a vintage shawl collar velvet jacket in a nice cranberry-ish red color. I'm planning on wearing it for valentine's day dinner, but haven't had a shawl collar jacket before. Do I have to wear a bow tie? Is a standard neck tie a no-no? Could I not wear a tie? If I did that, would an OCBD be too casual?

    Here's a crappy photo.

    I'm inclined to think that jacket would be appropriate only if you have a string of girls you've turned out to work the streets for you!
