This range comprises traditional evening and tuxedo shirts in exclusive materials with beautiful textures and exquisite details, perfectly suited for formal occasions.


Black Tie

You never look as good as in a tuxedo. Master the black tie outfit with subtle details and a perfect fit. Our flawlessly tailored black tie shirts and luxurious accessories are designed for both the respected gentleman, as well as for the modern dandy who wants to outshine with his look every day.

White Tie

White tie, also referred to as full dress, is considered the most formal dress code and is often used at gala events and ceremonies. Our white tie shirt is crafted from a unique piqué fabric with wing collar, single folded cuffs and white stud buttons for an impeccable appearance. Complete the look with our white tie vest and bowtie for the correct white tie attire.

Quick Tip

For black tie the silk of the bowtie should match the lapels facing; grosgrain silk for grosgrain lapels and satin silk for satin lapels.
