    Do you think these AE Fifth Ave on eBay are worth a $75 bid? http://www.ebay.com/itm/ALLEN-EDMOND...:B:WNA:US:3160

    Definitely, but I'd be surprised if you get them for that. It looks like they were worn once or twice, and 11D is a very common size.

    Good luck!

    There is a mark on the instep on both shoes. I can't make out what it is exactly but if it is a recrafted mark I may be wary. However IIRC that is usually a hammer or something.

    Interesting take. I feel like most herringbone dress shirts are subtle enough to have little effect on their formality.

    I agree. However if the person wearing it is going for a formal look I would pick a poplin, broadcloth, or twill over a herringbone.

    Just like I would choose a twill worsted navy blazer over a hopsack of I wanted to look more polished.

    Its not that those other weaves can't look formal and polished, but rather their are other better options.

    IMHO, YMMV, and all that.

    I think herringbone adds some interest to an otherwise plain shirt, similar to twill - you won't notice it from more that 3 feet away. If they were going tuxedos, I'd agree with you, but I see no problem wearing herringbone with a wool suit, even to a wedding.

    And yeah, to the OP - it will be a delicate subject no doubt, but there needs to be a tie intervention here. Those are not good. Unless the bride is going for rented-tux-on-prom-night, in which case they work pretty perfectly.

    Like I said before. The herringbone could easily work with a suit. I was just going off the OPs original statement that the groom wanted to be formal. My point was that their are more formal options besides herringbone. I never said it wouldn't work. And yes OP please be subtle.

    If you've got the budget for it, Makr is where it's at.

    For what it's worth, my little america has survived three full east coast tours in punk bands, constant use as a daily bag for school and work, and a couple of hiking/camping trips.
