    what colour

    Hi all,
    Just something to think about, what if you have been invited to a black tie function would you wear a silk coloured bow tie that would complement a colour in the kilt or hoses. I myself normally wear a black self tie bow tie, why I ask is I've seen it in the past that some wear coloured ties, not quite sure about it.

    Black, hence the name "black tie event"

    For an actual black tie, I'd wear a black tie.

    If the invitation specified "black tie optional," I'd be tempted to wear a mandarin collar shirt (with no tie, of course). But I'd also want to run the look by a couple fashion-forward friends to make sure it holds together under their scrutiny.

    What colour

    I would totally agree with everyone that if it states black tie then black tie it should be, but as I said I have seen coloured ties I have even seen one guy come to a captain's night on a cruise in black jeans and short sleeved check shirt but had a black bow tie, it did state black tie I supposed he was right lol.

    Well, no, he wasn't. The term black tie is about more than the tie. That particular numpty should have been turned away at the door. If I were the captain, he would have been!

    We're running into something here that I often see on the forum. Just because you once saw somebody, or a picture of somebody wearing something, it doesn't mean that it was either right or a good idea. There are a lot of clueless dipsticks out there.

    A very few people with great style, spirit, dash, flair, verve, swagger, flourish, and Úlan can pull it off.

    Very few indeed.
