    I need to buy a new suit, or shirt and tie, or whatever, for a wedding.

    Dressing classy isnt in my wheelhouse....how do I dress up and not look like an asshole? What color combos look good and such?

    Whenever I think of dressing up, I think Dumb and Dumber, or Cousin Eddy from Vacation.

    Black or Blue suit white shirt and get creative with your tie. The tie brings it all togeater.. None of those gay ass modern fit suits.. a classic regular fit suit.

    If you are a novice.. Mens wherehouse will take care of you without breaking the bank.

    what's your budget? if it's not much, you might consider heading to a men's warehouse or jcpenny and ask for some help. if it's a bit higher, try heading to a herberger's or daytons or someplace like that to look around and get fitted.

    ok, go to a Department Store, Macy's, Lord and Taylor or Nordstroms. Get a salesman or saleswoman to hook you up. Soup to nuts

    Do you have a girlfriend or a gay friend? Just bring one of them to Macy's and they will figure it all out.

    Don't cheap out, buy a suit. Just like you see it on the dummy. Tie, links, all. You'll not regret it

    Buy a dark suit like black because that's all you need if you don't wear many. A nice touch is a light blue shirt instead of white. and some kind of mathing tie with a striped or diamond pattern.
