White Tie Dress Code

White tie, full evening dress, or also known simply as ‘tails’; white tie is the highest dress code requirement for men. Typically reserved for such events as Royal evening ceremonies, state banquets, the ballet and the opera. On some occasions, it can also be a preferred dress code for formal wedding evening events, and where the strictness of such attire expectancies can seem complex, they needn’t be a stress you have to endure. We at Dobell make certain our white tie product range offers you every element of white tie attire, at prices that will surprise you.

In the 1840’s as the tuxedo became reserved for slightly less formal events, slightly more comfortable dress option, the full evening dress remained a fashion staple for the British gent. Made up of high waisted black trousers, black patent leather shoes, Marcella white bow tie, Marcella white waistcoat and black tailcoat, the white tie dress code has little room for personal touches. A scarf and top hat are permitted as acceptable accessories; however, the shirt must also be Marcella white cotton shirt, with a detachable winged collar.

White Tie, albeit these days a rare invitational requirement, unless for the most formal events and occasions, it is an attire that will likely never die out entirely, due to it’s ties with the Royal Family. There are occasions where guests are permitted to wear their own national costume or national dress, or indeed military dress uniform.
