One of our favorite guides to dressing for black tie comes from a 2012 New York Times article.

Tip #1: Shoulder fit is crucial

Tip #2: Put on a bowtie and be sure to know how to tie your own knot

Tip #3: Take a good measurement of your neck

Tip #4: In a Standard two-button suit, the break should be at your belly button

Tip #5: Shirts feel better with a taper

Tip #6: The half inch rule on the cuff is a must

Tip #7: Pant legs should have a modest break on the toe

Tip #8: No cuff on tuxedo trousers

Tip #9: Avoid lots of detail on the shoes

Tip #10: A simple steel watch with black leather strap is best

There are of course ways to show a bit of individuality or make a statement. One can be with the shoes you pair with the ensemble, like the Ralph Lauren loafers this wedding party chose. Of course, the bow tie is a great opportunity to try something different, and pocket squares becoming the hottest accessory- we like these by Ramply & Co.

You see and hear so much about fashions for the Bride, Bridesmaids, and Mother of the Bride that it may seem that the groom is often overshadowed. Of course all eyes on him as well (people always look to see the look on his face when the bride is walking down the aisle ) and he is in all of the photos too!  There are many options for the men out there, these are just some!

Greenberg white dinner jacket

White dinner jackets came to be when gentlemen in warmer climates wanted an alternative to the heavy dark tuxedo jackets.

Kerr ties

A dark gray suite with a coordinating tie is the perfect solution for those not wanting black tie. Get a custom tailored suit, though, as a nod to the formality of the occasion.

Kassen grey suits

Lightweight grey suits worked well for this summer affair on the coast.

For Sanjay Gupta’s Indian nuptials full traditional Hindu attire was adorned- he even rode in on a white horse (a white elephant wasn’t allowed at the venue!)
