You asked, and we listened, mulled, mused, cogitated and then replied. Every day MR PORTER customers contact us via Twitter, Facebook, email and telephone to talk through questions of taste, style, size and fit, and at this time of year many of the questions relate to weddings. Should it be a tie bar or a tiepin? A midnight blue tux or mid-blue blazer? Loafers or low tops? Dressing for a big event, whether yours or someone else's, throws up a variety of sartorial conundrums, from the macro (dinner jacket or lounge suit?) to the micro (white or blue pocket square?).
It's important to put together the right outfit whether the dress code is specific "black tie" or vague "casual", because a man's clothes will be scrutinised in a way they rarely are in everyday life. This is about more than merely interpreting the dress code - although we can help with that too - it's about nailing the details. To that end here are some of the queries our style advisors have recently received.
