Here's another suggestion to always get swatches. Swatches were a tremendous help when I got my midnight blue garza grossa tie. I got swatches of black, midnight blue, dark navy and navy to see which of the three navies I wanted. I got the black for comparison. Get swatches of the colour you think you want and swatches of a few similar ones. It will extend the wait time the amount of time it takes to get the swatches, but it helps so much to know what you are getting. Also...
I don't know if Carl Goldberg does CMT, but he's one of the most reasonably-priced shirtmakers in NYC regardless. He posts here as shirtmaven.

A dark suit is fine. Keep it in the grey family in a plain or herringbone weave.
Studs look better than button covers, though I prefer mother of pearl over onyx (though some may not like MOP for black tie). If you don't want to spend money on studs, and this is for black tie and your shirt has a turn-down collar, there's no problem with regular buttons.

Notch lapel dinner jackets have been around almost as long as the dinner jacket itself has. They became more popular since the 80s, though they were originally intended for private dinners and low-key events. That's not what you think any more when think of black tie. If you're...

Question: what is the button preference on ivory dinner jackets? Mother of pearl is most common and is nice looking, but the Ben Silver one has covered buttons (and a purple...
