Black Tie Gala
In the absence of a proper tuxedo, a charcoal suit is a great alternative for “black tie”, especially if it’s double-breasted.
Stay true to the traditional accoutrements of formal menswear: black silk bowtie (we prefer the diamond shape), hidden placket shirt, cufflinks, cummerbund, understated watch with crocodile band, etc.
As long as it’s sharply tailored, nobody will bat an eye.
