    Hi all. We’re due to get married next year, and it’s going to be black tie. I’ve already purchased a lovely dinner suit, with grosgrain silk piping, and gauntlet cuffs. Picture attached. It’ll be worn with a barathea silk cummerbund and bow tie, and a marcella dress shirt with antique yellow...

    Hey All, Theres a ton of good talk on here about tuxedo shirts but none that I can find that address what I'm after. I'm putting together an outift that I can wear to formal events. It consists of: 1. BB's Tuxedo Pants in black 2. Hickey Freeman Velvet Dinner Jacket (Peak Lapel). It is all...

    Hello I'm preparing for my first Black-Tie event at work for the Holidays in Netherlands. Though the event is black tie, many dress down so I'm thinking to not dress very formal either. I don't own a tuxedo or night jacket(have not had the need for one). I would prefer to wear a blue jacket...

    1. I'm trying to order a MTM formal shirt with a detachable-collar base. I see somewhere on the internet (see here) that the collar band on such a shirt should be half a size smaller than the regular collar. Is this an accepted consensus? 2. This shirt is for a "black-tie invited" summer...

    Although the black tie and cummerbund are the more classic option, would a patterned set, such as one from Vineyard Vines, be acceptable attire?

    My consulting firm is having an evening winter celebration calling for cocktail attire. I picked a few combinations from my wardrobe. Suit is navy in faint chalk stripe and I will be wearing black Ferragamo lace ups. I am trying to strike the right balance between being conservative and...

    I have been searching for a quality dinner suit to wear for the remainder of my time in high school, and while the local formalwear shop will (probably) be able to get me a proper off the rack tux, the majority of their selection is unimpressively trendy. I plan to get multiple uses out of the...

    I'm trying to put something together that looks classy on a budget, and that will be versatile and useful in the future. So - is it insane to wear a satin lapel shawl neck tuxedo with an ivory ribbed shirt, a white piqué vest, and a grosgrain bowtie? I'm concerned about the clash of textures...

    hello, first time poster here. I am engaged to be married in January (5:30 p.m. ceremony -- will be dark outside, and late enough for me to consider it an evening ceremony) and am planning a tux purchase. I can get the JAB signature tux at about $350, and based on prior AAAC forum...

    I'm a relatively new ask Andy member, but I have noticed quite a bit of conversation on the forums even among those quite knowledgeable about formal dress that excludes aesthetic consideration from the "rules" of formal dress. It seems as though many take the rules to exist because they were...

    Good morning or possibly afternoon or even evening all! I'd be obliged for your thoughts and in-put on the following; I am attending a black tie dinner and awards ceremony in a little over a month and I have the following: Shawl collor dinner jacket (black) Matching dress trouser with satin...

    Hi all, long time lingerer here :) I have a black tie event coming up soon, and really want to ditch the cummerbund; (I've never really liked them). However after some extensive searching, there seems to be little in the way of low V-cut black waistcoats around - all those which turn up are a...

    I'm getting married next year and I think I want to buy my tux, not rent. I'm fine with the idea of going second hand. I read Will's post on ASW about tuxedos. I would like a one button, peak lapel, no vent jacket; cumberbund since it will be in the summer in NC; hand tied bow tie; plain to...

    To my shame I own an attached wing collar dress shirt (Brit. Eng). Not having enough money around to buy a new dress shirt and pay for food/rent for the rest of term, I am considering having it altered. Is it possible to have a wing collar shirt converted to a turndown and do Ede and...

    I've just realised that at the ball I attended on Saturday my bow tie was ripped slightly when a friend of mine drunkenly tore it from my neck. For a replacement I am considering a single ended one such as . Has anyone here ever owned one before? If so how does their appearance differ and are...

    I have a tunic shirt and was wondering if it is done to wear a normal collar with it for black tie. I've been wearing wing collars for a few years now and have come to the conclusion that I prefer the look of a normal collar with black tie. I cannot, however, at the moment financially justify...

    Hello all -- I'm a long-time lurker, first-time poster. In about six months' time, the U.S. Government will assign me somewhere abroad as a representative of this fine nation. I'm not sure where yet, but regardless it will almost certainly involve attending black-tie events, or even...
