Wearing a shawl collar tux to a black tie event? Follow the guidelines mentioned.

There is a pretty strict framework for the black tie attire. It has a little flexibility on some of the small details, but by and large it is a uniform look.

  • Shawl collar tux should have the facing made of either satin or wool to give it a shiner look to the jacket.
  • For the slimmest silhouette and the strictest formality, an unvented jacket is preferred. However, double vents are also acceptable.
  • The button of the jacket should be either plain black or should match as same as the shawl collar.
  • Black-tie trousers are straight forward and they should be the perfect match to the jacket of the shawl collar tux.
  • The trousers need to be high waist so that either a waist coat or a cummerbund can cover the waist fully.
  • The shirt that accompanies the tuxedo should always be plain white.
  • The collar of the shirt can be either a wing collared or a turndown collar. Wing collars are high starched with small points that thrust outward beneath the chin.
  • Finally the tie from which black tie takes its name should of course be black and the material should match the jacket lapel facing.
  • The Neck Tie for the black tie event can be chosen from various models such as butterfly, semi-butterfly, straight end or pointed. There are no hard and fast rules as to which is preferable. This one depends completely on the style and personality of the men.
