Traditionally at weddings male guests have worn morning dress. Recently there has been a trend for male guests to wear lounge suits, but the groom still tends to wear the more traditional morning suit. A morning coat should be black or grey although navy and green have increased in popularity. Trousers should be charcoal striped or grey if wearing a grey jacket. If in doubt you are advised to consult your host. As a rule though the groom, best man, father of-the-bride and ushers should all wear morning dress. A plain white shirt, with waistcoat and silk tie should also be worn. The waistcoat and tie have traditionally been dove grey, but coloured waistcoats and ties are a perfectly acceptable alternative as they add tone and individuality to an outfit. NB: We strongly suggest that grooms consult the bride-to-be on colour schemes for waistcoats, ties and buttonholes!

The dress code at Royal Ascot falls into two categories. If you are attending the Royal Enclosure, other than top hats in black or grey which are compulsory, the rules are similar to a wedding where a degree of individual colour is acceptable. However for guests not in the Royal Enclosure a lounge suit or other morning wear is preferred choice of most.

For Trooping the Colour, Buckingham Palace Invitations / Ceremonies, Royal Garden Parties and important memorial services, the dress requirement is stricter and traditional rules have remained in place. Morning coats must be either black or grey. Waistcoats should be plain grey and worn above a white shirt, with no decorations. A grey or black top hat is also often compulsory.


eve wear


- Balls and Receptions
- Dinner at sea while cruising.
- Evening Events

Dinner jackets can be either single or double breasted and should traditionally be worn with a dress white shirt with a classic collar (although wing collared shirts are also extremely popular). Simple black and white is still the most popular (and the most correct) and should still be worn to most formal occasions. Rules and traditions, however, no longer restrict most "Black Tie" functions and so it is possible to pick and choose your own colour preference of bow tie, waistcoat and/or cummerbund.

We also supply white tuxedo jackets. These are still worn with white dress shirts, black dress trousers and a black bow tie but offer an alternative “look”. This look is extremely popular with those who are travelling to hot countries and with North Americans.
