Black Tie Standards

A savvy row buying guide.

Barathea wool is considered the classic choice for formal dinner suits. Heavier than anything you'll find on today's high street, a good barathea will last a lifetime and never look out of place. Vintage barathea DJs are widely available, quality is routinely excellent, and so is value for money. 

A velvet dinner jacket is a more 'dandy' alternative, perhaps. Originally derived from the smoking jacket and often still described as such. Silk-velvet examples are highly sought-after, and rightly so.

At first, black tie 'rules' might appear somewhat rigid and prescriptive but, as always, the enjoyment is in the detail! Subtle variations in cut and finish enable savvy chaps to reflect their individual tastes without ever appearing immodest (that would, of course, constitute the height of bad manners). 

Mr Tiernan's favoured cut is a 1 button single-breasted with grosgrain peak lapel. What will you choose? Read more
