Wedding Ties - Page 3

post #31 of 180
My point was not to be able to identify the groom. It was to give him some special status on His day.

I've strayed from 'identifying myself' on my wedding day. I don't like the idea of being more formal than my groomsmen, and I didn't ask them to all wear the same tie or colors, so it's not like I can easily differentiate myself.

Most people do not wear a morning suit to a wedding. Hell most people don't even wear what I would call a proper lounge (stroller) suit to a wedding.

A Morning suit is white tie for the day, and includes a tails coat, wing collar, waistcoat and top hat (I think the appropriate colour is dove gray for the jacket). My uncle got married in one.

OK, let's see if I got this right. The first three are wedding ties because of the color and pattern. The fourth is a macclesfield, but not a wedding tie because of the color pattern, correct?


1. RLPL glen plaid
2. Thomas Pink woven silk
3. BB mini-houndstooth in navy (puppy's tooth?)
4. BB mint green macclesfield

Wow. It is so not 'His' day. The day before the wedding is the last 'His' day for a long time. As for special status? A buttonhole usually works.

Sure, I do.

It appears that there are other conceptualizations of wedding ties....

Here are a few:


(l to r) vintage Holliday & Brown, Harold Powell, RL Polo, Robert Talbott
The H&B and Powell are probably a bit dark to wear to a wedding.



Ben Silver, Ike Behar, RLPL


Non-wedding wedding ties:

Etro, Nick Hilton

So does RLPL at the Mansion.

I bought this one fairly recently, in part out of a motivation to have a decent tie for attending weddings:

I might pick one up as well. That should make Tomasso happy .

Just be careful that the Drakes non-knit ties are pretty thick. A four-in-hand is relatively small, but will definitely be bigger than what you typically wear. They have a pretty nice sweet spot for the knot, however.
