What is Black Tie Attire?

Traditional Black Tie consists of a black tuxedo jacket, white tuxedo dress shirt,  cummerbund or vest, a black bowtie, and polished black shoes, but the most important accessory men forget about is a set of Black Suspenders.  Suspenders must be worn in order to keep your pants at the proper waist line and to keep your pants from sagging.

If you are invited to a formal “Black Tie” event that occurs during the day, and/or in warm weather then the black tuxedo jacket is often exchanged for a white one. Everything else should stay the same.
