Last week we attended a great wedding that was black tie. As previously posted, I have bought a series of ties from various shops in town after learning tie my own for the wedding. We look smashing, we do. The tux was purchased from a tux store 20 years ago. They frequently have tuxes at the end of the season that are for sale cheap. This particular tux is a Henry Grethel classic shawl collared. Quite fitted and nice overall shape to it. The "new" fashion this year is to have only suspenders and a tie. No cumberbund unless it is prom I was told. Not a bad look for an old guy. Of course I did have the perfect accessory, standing to my right.
