    Bow Tie With Suit

    Hi, I'm going to a wedding next month and want to be a bit different to just wearing the "normal" suit.

    I'm thinking black trousers, patent shoes, white shirt, grey blazer and a black bow tie. What do you guys think? Maybe with a black pocket square too or do you think this is overkill with the whole black and grey thing??

    I think you should go for a coloured bow tie, maybe a red or green? you might find a black bow tie, black pocket square and black trousers a bit too matchy matchy. The rest of the look sounds good to me though.

    Thanks for the replies. I agree about matching too much, do you think just a block red or green or maybe a patterned?
    Cheers!

    They have a bottle green knitted one on Reiss, that would be perfect.

    It's all oversized and ting.

    Outfit sounds kl.

    Go for a plain block colour. The Reiss one is knitted silk.

    I'd second what's been said so far, and I also think a black pocket square would look a little odd...if you want to keep it minimalist I'd use a plain white square instead.
