I’m very much a waistcoat type of guy. Yes, I own suits but waistcoats offer me the chance to look smart and blend in at the same time. Would I wear the same at a Black Tie wedding? Good question. I may have a black waistcoat for that one! I would have a chat with the bride and groom and see what I could get away with to blend in but also run around and swap lenses without dropping any.
As a guest, it’s never as easy is it? You don’t have the excuse to be working and need to be ready for action. You have to listen to your invitation. So how smart is smart? Is your smart my smart? It’s a bit easier when it’s a close friend so you can probably get away with wearing that tie with the dolphins and coconuts on it, or the John Virgo waistcoat… does that show my age? But what if you are going to a long distant cousin’s wedding? You don’t want to go too safe or too relaxed.
To help you with all of these questions, the awesome team over at The Black Tux , an American company, have sorted it all out in to a very useful guide for you.
After looking at the guide, check out their site. They don’t currently ship to the UK, but if there’s the demand for it, we may be able to persuade them to get some of their rental suits over the pond!
Let me know what you think and I’ll feedback any comments to the company.
Have a great week.
