Hope I am allowed to ask this question here, I can't really find anywhere else to ank!
Our company has a summer ball in a health and spa resort in Essex (no comments please!) and the majority of men will be wearing dinner suits, black bow-tie's. Some will just wear a suit and tie but it's not a strict dress code so long as you're smart.
I have a black dinner suit I'm wearing, which fits nice but I don't want to look like everyone else so I've bought a white bow-tie and a white pocket square. Is this acceptable? Or is white bow-tie / white tie reserved for extra special occaisions? Is it acceptable to wear a blue bow-tie for example or claret? I just want to have at least some identity amongst everyone else wearing their dinner suits and bow ties!
Any advice would be appreciated.
