    depends on what you're willing to spend. I'd go with a suit with a nice cut and add some color with your shirt and tie. Just don't match patterns up too much and don't go solid with the tie or you'll look like a douche :o

    no idea. the possibilities really are endless. I like to mix and match the shirts and ties when I go to stores to see what works. Do that and make a decision :dunno:

    nice suit. good shirt. cool tie. cufflinks. and if you think you can carry it off, get a shirt with a matching silk pocket hankerchief.

    Seriously. I'm not an overly good looking person but that scored me much interest that night. Admittably from both women and men, but still.

    if you wear a three-button you should be slapped.

    In a fancy building, but there is also an outdoor area if we wish to venture out there and not be cooped up inside.

    The temperature should be anywhere between 5 to 10 degrees during this event.

    I think he means it is too formal for cocktail attire.



    btw no one has really helped me with my question of whether a red button down shirt is overdoing too much or not.

    pic?

    depends on the shade of red. a darker red may work, but a bright red wont

    are you planning on wearing a tie?
