    It appears you have been give carte blanche to wield the MantonHammer. :slayer:

    I'd say the last 1-2 weeks can easily disappear without detriment.

    As the groom, I would definitely appreciate comments on the taste of what I'm wearing for my wedding. I'm also interested in comments on if the contrast collar was tastefully done here or if I would be better off going back to my white poplin. I'm a little weary on wearing a silk square for a wedding, but if I do, this is probably the most tasteful one I can find in my extremely limited selection. Light blue boutonniere might cause the look as a whole to be too pale blue? Square change?

    Looks great but for the square. A nice buttonhole flower would make sure you don't miss the square. Or go with simple white linen.

    Vanda shepherd's check tie? :)

    It's a nice contrast collar, but IMO, you should go with the white poplin; especially if the tie is the same black and white shepherd's check I'm thinking of.

    Also - at the risk of sounding like Foo - why not a cream or off-white silk square? The problem is the fussiness of the square combined with the fussiness of the checked tie. Either go plain, or choose something with a larger pattern. Personally, I'd go plain.

    Wedding attire = formal = elegant = simple.

    My 2 cents.

    I was so set on a white linen square until, oddly enough, reading this thread.

    The tie is Kent Wang's shepherd's check. :slayer:

    Totally agree with the equation you have above; the square was the main thing I was unsure of due to it being just a bit much for the occasion.

    As with the Peacock and Casual threads, these more theme-specific threads really need active weeding to be interesting. Otherwise, might as well just have one wayrn thread as we used to. Looking forward to some intensive pruning (or at least spoiler-coding) of fits that don't fit the parameters of the thread when Manton gets back from (?)holiday. (In an ideal world, I'd like to see the same done in the other threads I mentioned too, by their respective thread owners)

    Is this from today? Isn't it too hot in the year for tweed sport coats?

    It's not tweed, it's completely unlined and it's in the mid 70s.

    So, no.

    Details on that fabric please!
    I've been on the hunt for a fabric very similar in pattern but a little different in terms of the color, see below, perhaps it's from the same maker?!

    ed can probably add more details about the cloth (he has it too) - I don't remember much about it except that it's an old Woodhouse that was sold on eBay. It has a soft hand, not too heavy, there may be some cashmere in it ?
