    Shawl collared cardigan with a tie.

    I have to do a talk Thursday, for about an hour, and then listen to others speak for at least another 3+ hours. The auditorium that it will be in is chilly to say the least, and the event is not formal. What are your thoughts on a shawl collared cardigan with a tie look?

    Is this an academic or business environment? What is your seniority related to other people in the room?

    It's a medical conference, so it will be a bit of both, depending on the participant. It's not overly formal, most of the physicians speaking aren't menswear savvy at all.

    I was always taught that if you need a tie, you need a jacket. You might consider some thin base layer type undershirts. Another option might be a regular old A-shirt Often times I find I can wear an A-shirt under whatever in pretty cold weather without needing any kind of coat to keep warm.

    That is actually not a bad idea that I didnt think of.

    It's a pandemic in the healthcare community. We have visitors from all over and it seems like they all love the square toes. lol

    Could you do a thin wool V-Neck sweater under a sport coat?
    Donít call what your wearing an outfit. Donít ever say your car is broke.

    Yeah, that is what I was originally going to do. I figured I'd lose the jacket and just do a shawl cardigan for comfort, but I can always just take the jacket off when I am seated. I was just curious as to what others thought of the shawl with tie look. I googled images and some of the looks werent too bad.
