    Ok so I got a seer sucker suit I been wanting to wear. My g/f sorority is having a semi formal in a few weeks and figured it would be a good time to wear it out. However, I am having troubles finding a tie/bow tie and a shirt which will match it.

    Here is an option of a tie that I am considering:

    Now should I just go with a plain jane white shirt or what other colors do I have.


    And I know this isn't the typical OT style so be kind.

    If you have a warm skin tone you can use almost every color there is. If you are british white on the other hand, you can't. And I think bow ties are cool. Just don't get a clip-on.

    Not sure about the color combination. Seems a bit boring. And the shirt is well, horrible.
    It's easier to go with shirt/tie thought. OT is probably going to hate, but light pink shirt, black tie.

    It's funny you posted that picture, I was going to ask you what color seersucker it is (yellow, green, red, blue) and then suggest something along the lines of a pale blue shirt and a red or yellow tie.

    black is wayyyyyy too strong for a seersucker suit.

    I haven't even thought of shoes. I got a few in mind though. Something brown.

    If you want to go full out southerner then get a pair of white bucks. Otherwise a brown would be fine, just not too dark.

    This is what I went with.

    Seer sucker suit, light yellow shirt, light blue tie that matches the seer sucker stripes.
