Can you wear a mandarin collar shirt, with a non-mandarin collar tuxedo?

(yes, I know that you probably clicked on this thread to yell at me, but please don't =)

I have a fly-front tux, and want to wear it. Yes, I want to be fashion-forward, because, I'm going to such an event. I just wanted to know if mandarin-collared shirts were only for the tuxedos of the same name.

Thanks in advance!

Well, I suppose you could wear a Mandarin jacket and a shirt with a Mandarin collar (no tie), which would render you into the realms of the Japanese schoolboy look...

I suppose you can wear anything you want since this event seems rather informal (bordering on smart-casual). I would avoid the wing collar cravat combo as it is as far from traditional black tie as you can get (esp. with the 'tux' you are describing).

I'm British-Chinese BTW.
