Studs for black tie event

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Our company xmas party is coming up and the code is black tie. I'll be wearing a 3 piece tux and I'm wondering if studs on the shirt are entirely necessary since the vest covers up everything but 1 button. How about if I wear a shirt with a covered button placket?

Is the shirt designed to take studs? If the shirt has buttons attached, like any normal shirt, it cannot take studs. These shirts would have a buttonhole on both sides, one length-wise, one cross-wise. Very rare these days, you probably will have to find a vintage shirt. Shirts with fly front never take studs. (What would be the point as the fastening is hidden.)

I haven't bought a shirt yet. A covered placket shirt would come with buttons but there is an overlapping piece of cloth that covers up all the buttons. Just wondering what was considered acceptable -- if this is not, then I'll just buy a normal shirt and studs.

There's nothing wrong with a covered-placket tux shirt under a high vest. With so little of the shirt showing, tux studs are almost wasted, and the cleam line of the shirt helps balance the relatively "busy" look of the vest. Personally, I prefer studs when a cummerbund is worn. The shirt should, however, have French cuffs, with which you should wear a decent pair of cufflinks.
