I would think if choosing blackwatch trousers, that would be the only thing to be different from traditional black tie. I'd venture to guess that wearing a blackwatch bowtie might look passable, but it would border on the "matchy/costumey" side of things. My vote is to stick with a traditional black bow tie.

Finally purchased a tuxedo that fits me. I think the hardest purchase now will be the shirt. I'd like to hear opinions on pros/cons for both the pleat front shirt and the marcella shirt.

I have that tie, but not from Kent Wang. I did, however, wear Kent Wang's shepherd check tie at my own wedding. That glen plaid tie from KW would be perfect.
