This invitation says "Black Tie" or "Black Tie Optional". What does this mean?
Usually this means the host would like to have a black tie event, but is being considerate for the guests who don't own or want to rent a tuxedo.
Whether for a wedding, social, or charity event, we suggest wearing a black suit or tuxedo and accessorizing it with a white french cuff shirt, cuff links, black tie, and dressy black shoe.
We always recommend that you consider owning a tuxedo. You will look the part and feel great.
There are many options in our shop, and in the long term it is a worthwhile investment.
