    Vest - White or black with Prince Charles

    I was looking at a site for formal wear and noted that they have both cotton-pique white and 100% wool black vests.


    Is there a time for wearing one color over the other?

    Is the choice different for a tails coat versus a Prince Charles jacket?

    White tie event = white waistcoat & tie
    Black tie event = black waistcoat & tie
    Though if you are in Highland attire at a white tie event, it is said that black tie is the equivalent

    No current plans, just had my interest tickled.

    Do I understand this to mean that while in highland attire a black vest will work for both only the tie would change?

    Yes he is. Quite common in some circles. Perhaps he was wearing a dirk, but I doubt it.

    The problem as I see it is when a belt is worn under the waistcoat with the buckle peaking out from underneath.

    At one time, it was quite popular to wear a white waistcoat with a dinner jacket, with a black bow tie, stiff shirt, and winged collar. If you want to wear a white waistcoat with a Prince Charlie coatee, then by all means do so...but please wear a proper shirt and detachable collar.

    Actually, it looks to me that he's wearing the belt over the waistcoat. I can see the tails of the vest peeking out from under the belt.

    It looks like all but one person in the photo is wearing a sash of some sort. The sash might be significant to the event rather than a style in and of itself.
