This blog is a supplement to The Black Tie Guide, the Web’s foremost resource for formalwear etiquette and style. Since formal tradition changes very slowly the Guide only needs to be updated every few years. During the interim this blog will review current trends in formal wear, spotlight my favourite Guide topics and showcase information I’ve gleaned since writing the last edition of the Guide. It will also allow me to respond to readers’ queries in a public forum that will benefit others searching for the same information.
If you have a specific question that isn’t answered in the Guide or if you’re seeking an objective opinion on a personal black-tie quandary I’d be happy to help out. I am also happy to assist with media inquiries or to discuss speaking engagements or writing commissions. I can be reached at peter @ blacktieguide.com.
