Weddings: What a man should wear.

This is the most formal wedding attire out there and is pretty uncommon these days because of how restrictive it is. There is absolutely no wiggle room here—you’ll have to wear a tuxedo with tails, a white bibbed wingtip collar shirt with French cuffs, white piqué bow tie, and white waistcoat.

You’re in tuxedo territory here and a timeless black tux is the only way to go. Have your best black lace-ups shined in advance (patent leather shoes are traditional but not required these days). A bibbed tuxedo shirt is the most traditional and formal, while a covered placket or plain front is less formal and more modern. A peak or shawl lapel is the order of the day or even a notched lapel.

hese dress codes are typically reserved for the evening and indicate that something slightly less formal than black-tie is acceptable. So, a tuxedo isn’t required, but the event is still formal enough for one to be appropriate. You still have the option to wear a tuxedo, but a dark formal suit, white shirt, and dark tie will likely be the most popular choice.

For a beach wedding: Time to have some fun. We love a lighter-hued seasonal suit (cream, beige, light grey, or faded blue) with a relaxed shirt. Linen blends are perfect for most, and the bold shouldn’t overlook a printed Aloha shirt. Pay attention to specific attire requests from the couple (pale neutral shades only, for example). Skip the tie. Loafers or espadrilles are the play here.
