    I don't see any issues with it. A play on textures is always fun. Would love to see pics of the rig for better assessment though since we are talking about textures. And don't forget about the pocket square. It could really bring the rig all together.

    I have a black tie event coming up…a few tux questions:

    1. I was thinking of wearing suspenders but no cummerbund/vest/waist coat. Is that something that's done typically or is it a no-no?

    2. Would a pair of well-shined black cap-toe shoes suffice in place of patent leather tuxedo shoes?

    3. What's the best material for a white pocket square for a tux?

    Thanks!

    Of course, a PS. Mine happens to be linen so that adds to the textures. Here's a shot.

    I like the blazer and the tie. I thought the chambray tie would have a little bit more texture. IMHO, I think a silk knit tie would kick it up a notch due to the added texture. The chambray tie looks like a smooth silk tie which makes the rig a little flat.

    Hopefully others will be able to chime in.

    A little bit of tie bar action might kick it up a notch, too.

    Not a fan. It just looks like you're wearing a wrinkled shirt. Plus the collar is too small (it should touch the lapels). I like the tie, but it needs a dimple below the knot. Agree that a tie bar would look sharp with the skinny tie.

    1. Depends on the shirt and the pants. If you're wearing a traditional pleated or bib front shirt with belt loop pants, it will look like you don't know how to dress yourself. If it's a plain front shirt with high waisted pants made for braces, then no problem.

    2. Again, depends on the outfit. A tradional tux with bib front shirt, wingtip collar, and bow tie, I'd do patent leather. With a more modern look of plain front shirt and long tie, regular cap toes may add to the "casually cool" hip look.

    3. Silk

    Looks more like waxed cotton than leather to me, maybe Belstaff or Barbour.

    Thanks everyone for the feedback! I plan to use a tie bar, I just didn't feel like breaking it out for the photo. I will definitely have a dimple, I just tied a quick FIH for the photo (the skinny end is actually longer than the fat end, but don't tell anyone ) I'm still out on weather to wear that shirt or not...
