^ Rather true

I don't a set as yet, principally because the black tie events I attend usually are untamed party affairs that allow me to wear my textured dinner jackets, which don't need the extra embellishing

The DJ actually has surgeon cuffs too! The shoes are just patent leather shoes. I'm not a slim guy, so no more waist suppression I'm actually 5'11", but I have very short legs.

I agree. This time I was wearing a pique front shirt that had a concealed placket.

The DJ is a vintage textured silk brocade number that was recommended to me by Ich_Dien on MC B&S; I've included more than one shot due to the way it catches light

The vintage Yves Saint Laurent shirt I'm wearing has an enormous collar and its buttons sewn on a removable cotton strip to swap out for studs. Naturally, I don't own any

Opera pumps from Brooks Brothers; I may keep the AE Ritz if I ever source full cut evening trousers:

Pretty cool. Not sure about the Cage aux Folles glasses but nice outfit.

Thank you. I'd spent perhaps too much time with 1970s images of Michael Caine and Sammy Davis Jnr., so I opted to go frame free for the full length

The eyeframes are somewhat divisive, but that's me all over

How did this go unnoticed for so long?

Barims, I notice that you have consistently excellent fits with your trousers. They are able to achieve an elegant drape without being baggy. What's the secret? My best guess is a combo of silky/superfine fabric + highish rise + slim fit. Is this correct?

Barims, that is some serious style-- I'm certain you blew away everyone else at the event. reminds me of the latest D&G dinner jackets, pretty sure it is a new look for the upcoming season-- very sharp

I'm too polite for my own good

Thank you. In this case, you're correct. I'd say the secret is really in getting the waist and seat fittings correct. Sometimes, this involves a really effective belt. I'm also not a great fan of tapering and take pains to avoid pooling. In this case, I think my long limbs count for much (for once)

On the other hand, I wear Oxford Bags-like trousers the rest of the time; I apply the highish rise principle to them and make certain that they don't fall further than the top of my foot

Thanks, also. I did come close to upstaging the birthday boy (also pictured) a touch, but he wouldn't have cared - we both appreciate dressing up, he is taller and his dance to 'Billie Jean' brought the house down. I do agree that the jacket is rather contemporary - opulent Edwardiana is always ripe for appreciation

As for the other partygoers; well, I was almost certainly alone in the self-tied bow stakes and definitely one of the very few eschewing jeans - but then only the bow ties were stipulated

is that a miniature/ baby rose on your lapel buttonhole? nice touch!
post #176 of 192
Thank you; it's actually polymer clay on a pin, as the DJ omits a buttonhole

I recently saw a black velvet bowtie from, I think, Thomas Pink.

can anyone tell me which store this tuxedo comes from?! the width of the shawl is exactly what i'm looking for!!!
post #179 of 192
Guys, quick question about studded buttons. Does the shirt have to come with them or can you get them put on a shirt without them?
post #180 of 192
The shirt will basically have no buttons, and holes on each side. It may also come with some buttons for shipping/conversion/decorative purposes.
