^An event that says "Black tie" demands a tuxedo and a black BOWTIE. While a skinny black tie or whatnot might be fun for cocktail parties, a long tie should never be worn for black tie. It's grown more common these days, but it's still incorrect, and it looks really stupid.
Definitely. That was some pretty bad advice there. Long black ties for formalwear and Vineyard Vines ties to "bring an outfit to life"?
