Colour And Tux

Colour and Tux

This week we’re turning our attention to tuxedos. Whether it's your first black tie event, prom, wedding or just a day out at the races, dresswear doesn’t have to be boring and confine you to black. Here’s how to bend the sartorial rules and inject some colour into your formal look.


Become a Maven in Merlot



Want to stand out from the crowd without being too garish? Then our men’s velvet tuxedo jacket is for you. Beloved by the likes of Tom Ford, Benedict Cumberbatch and Tinie Tempah, this merlot slim fit tuxedo is perfect for adding a touch of sophistication to any black tie ensemble.

Keep it stylish with a pair of black trousers, a white shirt and bow tie, and you’ll be sure to leave a lasting impression wherever you go.

Not a fan of the merlot? Try the navy blue velvet tuxedo jacket for a more understated look. Ideal for the winter season, you can dress it up with a shirt, bow tie and tux trousers, or down with a casual tee and jeans.

DO

  • Have fun experimenting with different colours
  • Think timings. If the occasion starts before 6pm, you generally have more leniency with your black tie attire
  • Remember black trousers can be worn with any dresswear
  • Add an extra dimension to your look with cummerbunds, roll necks, playful bowties, cravats and pocket squares

DON’T

  • Stray from the rules if the dress code is strict black tie
  • Rent a suit, unless you’re never going to wear it again
  • Wear a belt, a belt should never be seen with a tux
