I’ve been interested for a while in trying out Darcy’s Stiff front shirts and detachable collars for black tie events. I had thought of trying both sizes of their wing collar. Should I not bother and just go with the higher one? Also does anyone have recommendations for a starched turndown collar for black tie?

My Recs: J Sheeky The Ivy L’Escargot All excellent. The Dover sole from Sheeky is one of the best things that has ever entered my mouth.
Yes, I would be interested as well. Such a polarizing topic.

700+ people? What a bloody nightmare for your new wife’s dominant hand. That’s over 700 personalized thank you notes! If she has a day job she might finish in three years.
If you are really hung up about not offending the groom: call the bride (or her mother) for clarification – which she will provide (God help us if she agrees with him). This will also benefit other guests who may have been thwarted by an ill informed groom, whom may be able to be corrected in time.
