Blacktie Creative Look 1

December 28th, 2012

1. Devil in the Details

The safest way to tackle “black tie creative” is to keep the foundations of formalwear in check, but tweak the details a little.

For example: the black velvet trim on the midnight blue tuxedo, the matching velvet tie, the subtle print on the white french cuff shirt, the doillie pocket square, etc.

At first glance it looks traditional, but when you look closer you see the subtle creativity behind the look.

Traditionalists¬†would say a tuxedo should be worn with a clean shave, but I’m not losing the beard anytime soon.

That said, I probably should have cleaned up the lines for this shoot…

Midnight navy tux?

Why not some midnight navy loafers.
