Hey all

Holiday party season is here. Iíve got two in the same week so could use some help.

First is in Tulsa for our company party. Most donít dress up (Ties are asking a lot) but our President (who I know pretty well) is wearing a tux. I have a nice one from SuSu so I was going to wear that.

Wondering if I should spice up a normal tux with either a holiday bow tie (like velvet texture or even design) to bring down the formality add some fun a slight bit or if that is too much?

For the second party itís cocktail attire at DC wine bar. I was going to wear my purple velvet sport coat. What tie color or style should I look for? Iíve worn it before with a simple black tie but donít know if I should try something new.

Thanks in advance.
