White tie

Examples of a correct execution of "white tie", the real evening formal. With a WHITE bow tie, peaked lapels, high waisted pants, the waistcoat must NEVER, ever be shown bellow the front part of jacket. Some examples are not perfect, but at least not commit the terrible mistakes commonly seen these days. Black bow ties and cummerbund are FORBIDDEN!!! and please IT'S NOT A TUXEDO.

This version of competitive dance white tie is curious. For a standard formal attire you have to remove the breast pocket tags, replace the black shirt studs for white mother of pearl studs and polish other details.
