    Depends on the brand but I would try on both a 46 and a 48 to be sure. Terrible answer but depending on the brand and fit I am either a 40 or 42.

    Let me re-phrase my question. I am a size 47 jacket. I bought both a 46 and a 48. As you might expect, the 46 is a bit tight and the 48 is a bit big. Which one would you keep and get tailored.

    If one of them fits in the shoulders, keep it and get it tailored in the waist. If neither fits in the shoulders return them both.

    I'm attending a black tie optional wedding in a few weeks. Since I don't own a tux or plan on renting one I'm wearing a charcoal suit. Would wearing a black tie be advisable even though I'm not wearing a tux? Or is that some sort a faux pas?

    I would wear silver or something similar (champagne silk) rather than black. You want to look elegant and festive rather than somber.

    @theplayerking That's a good point. I do have a champagne colored tie from a previous wedding I was part of. I'll give that a try.

    @Dun The ceremony is late afternoon and the receiption is in the evening.

    A black neck tie might feel too somber. And if you take off your jacket look like a waiter?

    Either a bow tie or a more festive textured neck tie.

    Has anyone purchased shoes from New Republic by Mark McNairy? I'm intrigued by the design and price for the suede drivers and Chelsea boots, but don't know about the quality and how they hold up.
