Black tie attire

Recommended Posts

No, I don't need a tux. No experience with the fit but there's plenty of evidence on SF to suggest it's rather good. Don't know if they have a shop in London, but they are made in Amsterdam.

FF, my advice whatever it is dont ever do a rental, i look like a fucking waiter when i did that. But I did it in KL, but the DJ rentals in UK would be substantially better.

 

You should ask yourself how much mileage are gonna get with the DJ. I do get a black tie event once a year but after i commissioned my DJ, i've only had one event. Hahahaha. There you go when i didnt have 1, i was getting invites left right and center. Now that i do, its dried up. But its good to have in you wardrobe i think, and i dont like not following the dress code. The organizers of the party have come out of their way organizing a party and inviting you, the least you could do is to oblige them with the proper attire.

 

And another thing you'll prob have a lot of black tie events there, the balls there all black tie so you might have to consider in investing in one.

I don't suppose you'd be able to fit into one with a 37" chest and 16.5" shoulder to shoulder measurement? I think I'll skipping all of these year's black tie events so I'm more than happy to loan it out. It's an uncollected bespoke piece by Chris Kerr which I somehow managed to get my hands on.

If you're really not going to wear it often and can't justify spending too much on it, why not try M&S. The Marble Arch flagship store should carry their entire range of formal-wear. Even though the trousers that go with their dinner jackets have belt loops, it's not the end of the world. With the 30% discount that they're offering on men's suits, you'd be spending well below £200.

the tux that Daniel Craig wear in Skyfall was my type!

What, with that awful collar gap? I admired the cream jacket the villian wore when he first appeared.

I don't think you need go to extent of the patent shoes. A black shiny Oxford whole cut would be more than sufficient.

something I remember reading about - a plaintoe wholecut bal is slightly more formal than a plaintoe bal with seams (and slightly more formal than a captoe bal). A wholecut bal with a mirror shine is acceptable (marginally) with a dinner jacket.
