    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...

    Hello, This might be a dumb question, especially for my 1st posting, but what does the back of a person look like wearing a cummerbund without the dinner jacket on? I have been searching all over the web to find a photos of this, but have had no luck. I am getting married in a few months, and...

    Hello, I found a nice dinner jacket at Charles Tyrwhitt; they claim the lapels are made of satin, but the fabric is subtly ribbed, which brings faille to mind. Could an expert advise on what this actually is please? Thank you.

    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...

    So, I've been considering having a custom dinner suit made and an idea popped into my head as I was walking home from work. I have a small collection of frock coats and morning coats and adore the back details on them so I wondered if it would be considered "wrong" to have this applied to a...

    Hello all, Long time lurker but this is my first post. I have a dilema I hope you can help me out with. The wife and I have a wedding This coming Sunday in Florida. The wedding begins at 3 pm and dress is "black tie optional" (which I guess means anything goes?). I have become enamored with...

    Aside from Andy's tutorial on wedding attire, I have not found a straight answer to this question. I would sincerely appreciate your help. I'm getting married in August, it is a 6:30 wedding, traditional and formal (perhaps I should say semi-formal) in every sense. Guests will be in dinner...

    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...

    My Sartorially Splendid Friends - I am to be wed next month on Nantucket! I have a few questions: 1. Is it acceptable to wear a white dinner jacket? Our wedding will take place the week prior to Labor Day. If white is acceptable, how should I think about my jacket's color...

    In today’s Times there is an article that says Huntsman’s off the peg DJ has notch lapels rather than peaked. I always assumed that DJ's MUST have peaked lapels. Though the bastion of classical tailoring seems to think otherwise. Who is wrong? Any other thoughts on the matter?

    Hello, We're planning the groomsmen tuxedos/dinner jackets for an upcoming wedding, and I have some questions. I've been perusing some of the recent threads on tuxedos, but at the same time I'd feel a little more certain if some of these were answered directly by the learned minds of this...

    Hello, As a fortieth birthday present to myself I'm going to get a new dinner suit made. My old one is nearly 20 years old and made of polyester. My budget is up to around GBP 1000. From recommendations in these forums and elsewhere my current shortlist is: Ede and Ravenscroft (MTM) Jasper...

    Camel colored topcoat with a dinner jacket: Fine, questionable, or garish? I fear it's garish, but I don't have a black one and would rather avoid buying one if possible. Thoughts?

    Gentlemen, Long time lurker, first time poster. Can one rent a quality tuxedo in Washington DC / Northern Virginia, beyond the numerous Men's Wearhouses and Sarno & Sons? I was hoping for a better quality suiting, perhaps with Loro Piana wool, but I've had no luck. I contacted several local...

    Okay I thought this would be easy to find but I guess not. I am going to rent my Tux for my wedding. I want a style that is not practical for me to own. I want an Ivory Shawl jacket with non-flap pockets (black trousers and accessories of course). Whats more is I want my groomsmen to have a the...

    I was asked to be a groomsman at a high school friend's wedding. Taking cue from a Sean Connery James Bond movie, he decided that we would all wear the following: https://www.menswearhouse.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay_10051_10751_10601_130952_-1_10751__10651 The rental cost at...
