I have a business function to attend in March. The attire is listed as 'tropical black tie'. Could someone tell me what is 'tropical black tie'? Thanks

Essentially it is a phrase whomever wrote the invitation made up. All snark aside, I would go with a off-white shawl collar dinner jacket paired with all the black tie basics. If you feel creative maybe go with a velvet slipper or a black suede slip-on, especially if it will be outside (this is unconventional, and according to some totally inappropriate, but igent handbook be damned let the shit storm begin).
