The Most Formal in Traditional Evening Western Dress Codes
While rare in the early 21st century, it survives as the formal dress code for royal and public ceremonies and audiences, weddings and balls
White tie, also called full evening dress or a dress suit, is the most formal in traditional evening western dress codes. For men, it consists of a black dress coat with tails worn over a white shirt, Piqué waistcoat and the eponymous white bow tie worn around a standing wingtip collar. High-waisted black trousers and patent leather oxford or optionally court shoes complete the outfit.
White Tie
White tie is reserved for extremely formal occasions and is the most elegant of all evening attire, giving the wearer a glimpse into the past.

Our suits consist of a single-breasted black barathea wool tailcoat with silk peak lapels worn over a white starched shirt, a marcella waistcoat and a white bow-tie worn around a detachable starched wing collar.

High-waisted black trousers and patent leather shoes complete the ensemble; a top hat and white scarf are also acceptable as accessories.
