I went to a wedding last weekend . I wore a black bow tie, white shirt with mother of pearl cuff links, a black velvet smoking jacket with notch lapel and 2 buttons, a white pocket square, gray trousers and black slippers. I was self conscious goin in but I think 99% of the people had even more liberal interpretation of black tie than I. The broadest interpretation I saw was with shorts. I must say the women showed much higher consistently and quality in dressing.
