If you see the words black tie on your wedding invite, only top-tier formality will do. Unsurprisingly, a black bow tie is a good place to start. But, what of your footwear? If you want to make the best possible impression, go for a pair of black whole cut leather shoes which – thanks to their construction using a single piece of leather – are all elegant unbroken lines.
Add a white dress shirt, black accessories (your socks, belt and even your wallet should be black), a simple white pocket square and there you have it, the most formal dress code deciphered.
