    I've been lazy on getting my dry cleaning done, and now have limited options. this shirt has the best fit out of what's left. it's purple. I plan on wearing a darker charcoal suit. what color tie should I wear with it? I read navy would look good? maybe just go with no tie and leave a button or two undone?


    I also considered wearing the shirt with darker grey slacks and a light grey v-neck sweater and no suit jacket. thoughts on that, too

    edit: going to an open bar type deal at a club/bar (combo kinda) in midtown NYC

    Just make sure you wear a V neck tee so it does not show...

    the only v-necks I have clean are brand new and smell kinda like brand new clothing which annoys me (yes I've been lazy with wash the past month). I was planning on no undershirt (or crew neck if I wore a tie and it was hidden). that's ok, too, right?

    My vote: suit, shirt with no tie. Either v neck or no t-shirt.

    Sweater in Manhattan at NYE = Dad/old man style.

    Visible t-shirt = nerdy at best.
