My budget is reasonable considering I don't mind paying for quality.

I am interested in single button peak label....I saw a jacket by Dunhill that blew my mind. Trying to base it around that.

White tie or black tie formal wear. I'm leaning to the more classic elegance..nothing too gaudy..

For a good bow tie try Hanauer, for socks Pantherella has some nice formal hose (I have the white pindot, very nice). I would suggest picking up a vintage stud set on ebay where unique quality sets can be found quite inexpensively. I was also able to find an essentially deadstock white silk opera scarf on ebay from a seller in England.

While I agree with this 100%, keep in mind that vintage/antique stud sets tended to be made for vintage/antique formal shirts which had 3 button holes (or sometimes less) as opposed to modern shirts/stud sets which have 4.

Just keep in mind that you need to match your shirt and studs in terms of number.

I have a pair of once-used AE Spencer formal shoes, but they're 11.5D.

Thanks for the offers and suggestions. Pm's sent if interested.

I really like the Pantherella socks. They're beautiful. Hanauer's accesories are also quite stunning. Thanks!!
