I think that would work for sure, but it’s a silk knit tieI have a black shantung tie that I have worn with a dinner jacket successfully.
I’m leaning toward the bow tie.Up front, I am supremely biased against any sort of traditional necktie with black tie
Without seeing a side by side, I think I would opt for the BW bow tie.
It is not a fancy event. We’re taking a holiday card photo tomorrow in the park. Unfortunately, there are no businesses in walking distance that have a black tie. I don’t have a car or care to go out even if I did. Excuses. Excuses. I’ll probably just go with the bow tie.Come awwwwn man! Black tie events are few and far between. You can’t wear a long tie. Don’t you live in NYC? There must be some options for you to pick up a black bow tie in time surely? If that’s absolutely out of the question then the BW bow tie will have to do but you’ll surely regret not getting into the full rig??
