black tie

“A grown man should own his own tuxedo. Period. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise; there are only two classically appropriate lapel styles — either peak or shawl, and always one button. Let the guys who rent wear the goofy-looking stuff. When you want to divert from the norm, add a black watch, velvet, or white dinner jacket.”
