Men in Black Tie

Friend Jack and I have been working on a list of iconic menswear which is forthcoming (suggestions?), but in the meantime here are some great black tie ensembles. Oh for the day when you couldn't go to the club to read the paper w/o your black tie, le sigh.

For more on men's formal wear classifications see this entry.

Humphrey Bogart: double breasted peak lapel

Cary Grant in silk stockings

Fred Astaire in a-typical black tie with waistcoat

Sean Connery's Bond with a narrow shawl collar

Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby (shawl collar, pointed tie)

Cary Grant shawl collar

Daniel Craig James Bond shawl collar

  1. I have a suggestion for a menswear topic...the manpri!! It runs rampant in Europe and sometimes you see it on an American. The v-neck tee is also a potential topic (and looks best on Europeans and Scandinavians!) Let me know if you need more the mullet. :)
