THE HELM'S GUIDE TO CHOOSING THE RIGHT FORMAL OUTFIT
In the ever-changing world of men’s fashion it’s hard to know what’s appropriate to wear season to season. This holiday season (which goes hand in hand with the black tie gala season) we’ll walk you through the right options to help you stand out.
I know you’re thinking - what about colour? What about style? Where do I show my personality? We believe that your personality should come through how you carry yourself and when wearing a tuxedo - So remember to hold open doors, refrain from having that last cocktail and above all, leave the profanity at home.
Well that covers the tuxedo. But the invitation said “black tie optional” and you want to take “optional” to a whole new level. We would like to introduce you to the dinner jacket! This versatile piece of clothing can be worn with nearly every item in your wardrobe. Your favorite old rock band t-shirt…check. Ripped up denim…check. White shirt and bow tie…check. This item really allows you to showcase your personality, and still be dressed appropriately for the occasion - perfect for a big night out on the town or the office Christmas party. A dinner jacket will beat an ugly Christmas sweater any day of the week.
Although the tuxedo and dinner jacket share a similar level of formality, that’s really where their similarities stop. So whichever choice you feel suits you, we have options in-store this season to have you looking your best
