All Hail Creative Black Tie
Though purists bemoan it, the "creative black tie" trend has been liberating. Why wear the same tux everyone else is wearing when you can get creative? Start with our shawl-collared vevlet jacket in navy, add tux trousers or a fine pant, a crisp white dress shirt with French cuffs, and an elegant, evening-suitable necktie. The options are endless, and possibly include monogrammed slippers, a fine cigar, and a bottle of cognac.
||Make sure creative black tie is actually encouraged.
