La Sirenuse board shorts, of course..

Whenever someone says cocktail I picture Tony Montana in scarface lol

I think in reality cocktail suggests normal suit attire and people use the term as reference to NOT black tie.

 

It also renders imagery of more colour, no dark suit, no black shoes but of course play within your own realm of wardrobe choice!

Michael I think you're confusing "cocktails" i.e drinking a cocktail with "cocktail" as a dress code. This might help.

At all the not very many specifically Black Tie functions I've been to in the last 5 years less than 5% have actually worn a Dinner suit and black bow tie.

Cocktail should mean in by 5.30pm out by 7.30pm but I doubt people stick to that.

Cocktail should mean dressing up - not down - for going out on town later.

Any weddings I've been to lately very few are even wearing ties, let alone jackets or suits. [insert standard online pompous rant about current dress standards]

Truth is - unless you have evidence otherwise - almost any clean jacket and clean shirt and trousers that aren't too tight, too loose or too long will be more dressed up than most there.

Cocktail Dress really is the time for the shiney mohair suit with white shirt and knit tie.

post #22436 of 55941

hey guys - looking for some input.

 

Im working on a menswear product that can involve a high degree of customisation and just wondering what websites you have seen that have a good interface? looking for some inspiration.

 

Ive looked at things like shoes of prey, indochino, joe button, institchu etc as examples but none have blown me away yet (shoes of prey is probably best)

 

Cheers

Rob

Lots of interpretations (and there will be many on the night) but I believe the correct one is dark suit and tie. Definitely not 'black-tie' unless it is a state function or royalty will be present. Regardless, there will be guests there in chinos and a short sleeve casual shirt.

Cottonwork is fairly cool Romp.

 

And a cross post from the 'Carmina Shoe P0rn Thread:

Guys I have very flat and short feet; they usually bulge out the sides because the sole width of the waist is not enough for my extremely flat feet. Yet when I size up to accommodate this they are just too long. What last would you recommend for this? (if Carmina has none maybe another company?)

post #22440 of 55941

Most of the English shoemakers offer different widths. Worth checking out Herring & Pediwear to see if they have anything that suits your taste.
