    Why would I need to wear black tie to a sock and semen showcase?


    Black patent oxfords with silk ribbon laces.

    He'd look better with someone taller, but it isn't bad.

    I like how each one is saying "let me sex inside you," but with completely different facial expressions.

    Can't tell much from the pic. Black or midnight blue?

    The buttons look like regular horn--I'd swap 'em for silk-covered ones.

    blue. with black grosgrain. I agree the pic is off, the blue is pretty clear in sunlight.

    and I had the collar adjusted, but all pics I have are pre-adjustment. Hence no posting.

    I went to a wedding last weekend . I wore a black bow tie, white shirt with mother of pearl cuff links, a black velvet smoking jacket with notch lapel and 2 buttons, a white pocket square, gray trousers and black slippers. I was self conscious goin in but I think 99% of the people had even more liberal interpretation of black tie than I. The broadest interpretation I saw was with shorts. I must say the women showed much higher consistently and quality in dressing.

    This is the Kiton midnight navy "dinner jacket" that the consensus is it's an orphaned tux jacket.

    I like it so much I spoke to Kiton in NY and they are able to make me a pair of matching pants.

    Before I make the plunge.....

    What do you guys think?
