    The New Waistcoat

    All - Iím off to a dinner/gala event for New Yearís Eve and initially had the below lined up. After seeing that most people will be wearing a suit, I decided to be slightly different and dress up my combo with the waistcoat which should arrive on New Yearís Eve.

    However without actually putting all of the pieces together Iím unsure if the blue shirt/spotty tie will go with the new waistcoat and if I wait until New Yearís Eve then I will have left it too late to buy an alternative shirt/tie combo. Any advice on firstly if they will work together and if not what colour/style alternatives do you think would go with the waistcoat?

    Shoes - Ted Baker Nenoi
    Shirt ĖFully Fitted Blue Poplin Button Cuff Shirt
    Tie - Reiss Dino Navy
    Trousers - Gant Prep Chino (Brown/Cream)
    Belt - Ralph Lauren Saddle Brown Leather Belt

    (Sorry I tried to put images/links in for all of them but as a new member I was restricted on the number of URLs I could add in a single post)

    Thanks for you quick reply, I wasn't planning on wearing a jacket so that the waist coat is the centre piece and keeps the look a little bit casual.

    We always disagree about Waistcoats Nat! I know you prefer layering whilst I like a waistcoat to be the central piece. So I would be happy to go without the jacket but I know you disagree.

    Looking at the waistcoat I can't see any problems. I think it will work perfectly well.

    Haha no I do like waistcoats, and the one Snow posted is very nice. I think it will work. It's just important to avoid looking like you've left your suit jacket at home. Also, being a gala dinner, I thought Snow might be going more formal.
