  • Wear a black suit or tuxedo, officially these suits are made of wool. The tuxedo should be a two piece black suit. Sometimes midnight blue is also worn. The suit should have a one button placket and the front and back are supposed to be at the same length with silk or satin lapels.
  • As the name indicates: wear a matching black tie.
  • Optional you can wear a tuxedo vest or cumberbund. The tuxedo vest is currently the most worn but for very formal black tie events a cumberbund might be a better option.
  • Wear a white ‘tuxedo’ shirt with a regular collar. A double cuff / manchet and a blind plug is required. The front of the shirt is officially pleated and the collar should be a foldover or winged standing. 
  • For a black tie tuxedo the trousers should have satin pipings (gallons) with seams on both sides of the trousers.
  • Combine your suit with black leather court shoes (pumps). Wear your shoes with long black socks made of silk or fine wool.
  • Wearing a watch is seen as inappropriate for a black or white tie dress code.
  • Also leave all other accessories at home (except for your wedding ring off course).
