Black tie is timeless.
For men, the classic combination of a sleek dinner suit paired with a crisp white dress shirt and a black bow tie remains the epitome of evening wear ensembles – which means finding the right formal wear for you can be a daunting affair.
With party season upon us, we’ve put together the essential guide to creating your elegant black tie look.
The Dinner Suit
A decent dinner suit will last you a decade so make sure you invest wisely. Don’t follow trends – the classic single-breasted variety finished with satin lapels will transcend fleeting fashions.
Our Blake Black 2-Button Slim Fit Dinner Suit is made of a wool and mohair mix; the latter catches the light for a sophisticated, shimmering effect.
The White Shirt
Whether the front panel of your shirt features a Marcella weave (a embossed, waffle-like texture) or pleats, a black tie shirt should always be white, clean-lined and double-cuffed.
As an added touch, all our wing-collared styles come with a retainer loop to keep your bow tie straight and assured throughout the night.
The Bow Tie
The pièce de résistance should, as the name suggests, be jet-black and should match with the facing of the suit e.g. satin with satin.
A bow tie with a matte finish, like our Black Barathea Self-Tie Bow Tie, piques the interest and looks fantastic.
The Finishing Touch
Inject some personality and put your stamp on the occasion with a final flourish, like a patterned evening scarf. The refined print of our Grey Black Paisley Evening Scarf adds charm and character to your black tie outfit.
Perfect your black tie style and you’ll steal the show on even the biggest occasions – how will you be crafting your evening attire this party season?
