Formal Wear Etiquette for Men

It is sometimes a daunting task to determine what is appropriate and what isn’t for a man to wear at a formal event. In recent years, there has been a more relaxed approach to formal wear for men.

Occasions that Require Full Dress
Dances (for a debs ball or other formal dance social), weddings, formal dinners, and funerals are generally the only times when men are expected to wear a suit and tie.

Black Tie
The dress code ‘black tie’ means that male guests are asked to wear a dress suit, dress shirt and black bow tie. There are two types of collars commonly used on the tuxedo dress shirt: The “Wing-Collar”, and the “Turndown-Collar”. Which one you choose is personal preference. The first one only has the tip of the collars folded down, while the second one is the more common collar that is also used on regular dress shirts.
