    I've heard both 'rules'. I have no idea whether either is correct.

    I bought this single Holland and Sherry button on eBay. Can I use it as the single button on my black tuxedo? Right now it has a single satin faced button.

    I think you can wear the same color pants as the non-vertically challenged without fear. Black and navy aren't very versatile. Wear did you hear about these "safety" concerns?

    I am certainly not an authority, but visually, the "buttoned" look makes more sense to me.

    Maybe some mother of pearl buttons? Makes it very different from a tuxedo. And keep it 2 button as that steers well clear of tux territory.

    I have an event coming up and was wondering if anyone could advice me on how I should tie a knit tie

    i.e. this: http://www.thetiebar.com/tie-bar-pr...asp&pg=1&categoryIds=31,62,70&optionValueIds=

    knit tie vs traditional woven...100% silk so it is rather cumbersome the last time I tried and turned out awful

    Would just like to keep it simple, will be worn with a spread collar


    edit: found this through some searches

    Is there something weird about the way Epaulet measures rise? It says 12.5 for the Rudy cut which would put them at about my sternum.

    There is front rise and back rise. Also, a google search will find conflicting instructions on how to measure. One says measure to the top of the waistband while the other says to measure to the bottom.

    I want to upgrade my black suit to a proper tux for black tie parties, but can't justify the expense of a bespoke one at this time so was thinking to get a mtm one from TaT, any other suggestions in the sub 1k range? I prefer a shawl db but understand that isnt going to happen at this price point, so I will just go with a classic sb shawl.

    Ask in the Epaulet thread, they'll know.

    Jeez. You can wear it either way (as long as you're wearing a cummerbund or waistcoat... if not, leave it buttoned).
