    Agreed. If you want to wear a bow tie, go with a different color.

    I have a choral concert this week. It's not a strict ensemble, volunteer not professional. Dress code is dark suit, white shirt, dark tie. My go-to is navy suit with black TTB grenafaux.

    Thoughts on black satin bow tie instead? I have one from my black tie rig.

    Grey seems like the more traditional choice for herringbone, and I don't think I've ever seen blue herringbone before, so kind of leaning towards the grey.

    I already have navy/light grey/brown sports coats FWIW.

    Thanks!
    Nice - I just looked at those this morning, and they are all sold out in my size. Perhaps just as well... The last time I bought a tweed blazer I ended up selling it because it looked too stodgy and professorial. (And I am, in fact, a college professor, but don't necessarily want to go for that stereotypical look.) The unconstructed look of this one looked like maybe it could help work around that a bit, though. Curious to know how you like them.

    On a related note, has anyone tried that wool "bomber jacket" sweater from J Crew?
