Evening Shirts

The festive wardrobe is in men’s fashion heavily dictated by dress codes. Typical is for example the attire “Black Tie“, that prescribes a tuxedo with an evening shirt and a black bow tie. However, this is not the only opportunity for your dress shirt to make a stylish appearance. To a ball, wedding, opera visit and other formalities is a dress shirt combined with a dark-toned suit also the right choice. 

 

An evening shirt is usually white or cream-colored, has a hidden button placket, double cuffs and a particularly elegant collar style like the Kent or the Cutaway collar. When combined with a bow tie, then the Wing collar, also known as the Wingtip collar, is your go to collar. An absolute must for evening shirts are high-quality workmanship and the finest fabrics like poplin or two ply cotton. Some dress shirts have white satin lines woven into the fabric or other refined details like a pleated plissé.

 

For those planning on attending the ball season, receptions, or traditional wedding parties, it is essential to invest in a basic set for evening wear. For starters, with a dress shirt you at least need a pair of elegant cufflinks. A bow tie, preferably in black, is also good to have and a thankful versatile partner in crime. Add a pocket square - traditionally made from cotton, Linen or silk – to your tuxedo in the same color as your shirt, i.e. white or champagne. Go for a bold colorful pocket square when wearing a normal suit to spice things up a little and show your personality. 

 

 

What really puts the finishing touch on a festive outfit is a personal note like your initials as a monogram embroidered on your shirt.
