Either way, I'll be wearing a wing-collar formal shirt, my dinner suit black watch tartan bow tie, yellow braces and black hose and patent leather shoes.
With this outfit... I'm trying to choose the right combination of pants and waist covering.
- Option 1: Tartan cummerbund, with the dinner suit's pants. I do worry about the color contrast between tartan and the canary yellow braces (yes, you're not supposed to take off your jacket but there's going to be dancing and it's just going to happen haha
- Option 2: The dinner suit's U-waistcoat, with my black watch tartan trews. I feel this is more distinctive, but perhaps would stand out a bit too much.
I'm sure combining the tartan bow tie, cummerbund and trews would be too much.
