I'm new to the Styleforum community, but hope still to learn quite a lot.
My question today is what are your opinions about wearing proper White Tie outside of designated White Tie events?
Now to clarify a little bit, I'm not saying wearing a set of tails to a private occasion where the hosts specifically requested black tie. And nor am I asking about wearing tails to a weekend bbq.
But in the case of going to a public place, such as a play, opera, or a special occasion with one's marriage mate, what would be your thoughts on wearing proper white tie? Personally, I can't see a thing wrong with that, as long as the person(s) your going with are dressed up properly as well.
For example, a few friends decide to go see a play, and decide to dress it up, most wearing black tie. In that context, would white tie be inappropriate, even though it's keeping in line with theme of "dressing it up"?
Anyways, just wanted to get your thoughts on how to wear white tie in the modern era - thanks for your time everyone!
