That's my guess, especially considering the price point of those seats.
I have two events coming up in March, and I've worn my rig six or seven times now. I'd like to mix things up with an inexpensive addition. I'm thinking of a new shirt, or maybe a diamond end bow tie, for a change of pace. If a shirt, what kind - pleats, plain, pinwhale? Studs or covered placket? Thoughts, anyone? Here's the rig, as is:
If it were me I'd get a bat-wing bow tie (diamond or straight, your choice). It would go great with the '30s vibe of your rig. A 2nd shirt might be more practical, though.
What's "30's" about that picture besides the lady's outfit?
Wow....You seem to come from a film set. Congrats!!
The waistcoat is from the 30's.
Yup, that is exactly what I was referring to. (I didn't mean it negatively, in case it was taken that way.)
I didn't take it that way. The waistcoat is my favorite part, and even better because it's true vintage but like new.
Than you, Gianni. Most of the credit has to go to our photographer, and some to the architecture. That part of Vancouver (like many other parts) actually is used in movies pretty often.
I think that most of the credit goes to you and your wife! Otherwise what the photographer was photographing ... =) ... congratulations again.
Do you guys starch your formal shirts?
I used to never starch anything, but just started starching my formal shirts.
I starch mine, and I normallly starch my shirts. I really starch my Marcella thoug - but I discovered that, if I starch it, then drive, it wrinkles, and ten the starch holds the wrinkles, lol.
My father-in-law went to a black tie wedding and when he arrived he was the only one (other than the wedding party) wearing a tux and most people weren't wearing ties at all. He was so mad.
I have a black tie gala I am attending for work this Spring. I have set a limit. If I attend 3 events a year that require a tux then I will buy one. Yesterday I tried on a Castangia Tuxedo and it fit me like a glove. That being said I won't buy one unless I hit that threshold.
Buy one, and you will find occasions to wear it.
It's like having a bottle of champagne in the fridge.
