Hello bros! Formal Code
Let’s just say that sometimes the term ‘ dress code’ can be a little bit vague, wooly. Unless its specifically stated on the invitation or you’ve been told what the dress code is, then you can become a little confused as to what you need to be wearing. The dress code that we are going to talk about here is for all those official events, galas and gatherings. Normally the dress code is included in the invitation: Formal Dress Code (Black Tie).
What is the Formal Dress Code?
Ok, palls! The formal dress code is, if you don’t know yet, that ‘ code’ that we all have to be aware of – the gentleman’s ‘dress-for-the-occasion’ look. There is nothing more awesome than a suit and tie outfit. It gives you that cool classy vibe that catches the eye and the one girls love. Timeless, dandy and modern at the same time, a perfect reflection of ones personal maturity. This is what the formal dress code is all about!
When most of us think of the term, we normally go straight to the image of a tuxedo, and yeah bro, you wouldn’t be wrong, although is more then this as you will see.
Formal Dress Code – The Black Tie
We start from here because this is it! Its all about this timeless look, called The Black Tie – occasionally known in the English-speaking world by its French name cravate noire. Is a dress code for evening events and social functions derived from British and American costume conventions of the 19th century.
Formal Dress Code – The Tuxedo
As far as wardrobe staples go, the tuxedo is a bastion of timeless style, forming the cornerstone of one of the last rigid dress codes we men must adhere to when it comes to formal events.
A classic piece of menswear that hasn’t really changed in the last 100 years, the tuxedo is the formal attire of choice for style icons from the red carpet to the silver screen. This evening wear look is the very definition of debonair. Satin (the IT material for a tuxedo) detailing on the blazer and the trousers make is visibly different from other classy looks. Tuxedos are historically only to be worn with bow ties and cummerbunds or waistcoats (low stance vests.) You can add a personal touch with a colored pocket square and you’ll be good to go.

Breaking down the Formal Dress Code
- Black tie is the damn IT form of formal dress code to get your head around.
- Always stick to classic cuts and colors, but you know a little difference never hurt nobody.
- White tie is the ultimate in formal dress code for men.
- Suits are a the best, but still make sure they’re well fitting and sleek.
Important fact – Make sure that the suit fits you perfectly, as suits (casual or not ) can look out of the picture very quickly if you’re not too careful. Too big or too small and you will look kinda silly.
Be edgy, be YOU!
