Silk knot cufflinks for a funeral? Any consensus on that. They're the only ones I have.

Noone will notice what cufflinks you're wearing at a funeral.

No need for off-the-cuff remarks like that.

Wearing a suit without a tie. What's the best collar? Imagine cutaway etc would look a bit shite right?

just got a couple of Charles Tyrwhitt suits, and need them slightly altered. slip nip at the waist and trousers hemmed and tapered.
CT offer their own alterations, anyone had experience of them? if not, does anyone recommend anywhere?
ideally i'd like to go to CT, as their customer service is pretty good, and if it all goes wrong i know they can look after me

They did some trousers for me. Not a bad job and quick turnaround but for my jacket I went to London fashion workrooms. Actual tailor/alterationist pins and takes the measurements.

What's the consensus on wearing an Oxford BD with a tie and suit to a wedding?

I personally like it, but seen some people say it should never be done.

Fine if you've got a more ivy look.

You'll be hot and it's difficult to get Oxford cloth properly ironed though
