The Perfect Day for The Perfect Dress Up Occasion



Keeping your tie wedded to the occasion. 

It’s a summer wedding and there’s an air of excitement about the day; rushing about and busying yourself to get to the Church on time... all the while looking cool in your shades and keeping fresh in the summer glow with a light seasonal fragrance.

Sure, you've got your jacket with a bouncy little hank in the pocket and a complimentary (often colour contrasting) pair of trousers or chino’s; and of course in the summer you can go sock-less, so long as the shoes fit the look; but again, when there is such a wealth of different designs and fabrics out there for summer wear, and a bounty of summery colours, why would you not enjoy on this occasion a little neatly tied neck-wear to compliment your wedding sartorialising.

The wedding is after-all, another of those institutions heaped in pomp and formality, as well of course, love and goodwill.

So given the opportunity to spread a little goodwill to your fellow invited guests by getting ‘dressed up to the nines’ – yes this is one of those occasions where you absolutely can - why not spread that dapper love. While also letting it be known you will not be beaten in the dressy stakes! Should you decide to ditch the tie you will undoubtedly enter second place and sadly lose yourself in a day of ‘oh, why didn’t I go the distance..’ after seeing the chap who laid it down with a nice spread collar adorned with a lovely summer tie and well tied knot.

Taken as a whole, your tie, your hank, your watch, your shades, all these little accessories are what goes into the detail, and in wearing them right transform themselves from little accessories into big statements about looking cool and looking dapper.

Don’t be tempted through the day to loosen or lose the neck-wear either. There’s nothing stiff or stuffy about keeping up appearances, not least enjoying the fact that you’re remaining in sartorial tact. When you dressed in the morning the tie was the centre point of your outfit; the piece that linked it all together, losing this at any point during the day is like undressing to semi-naked-ness.

Keep it on. Keep it cool.

And as a final note; as the occasion drifts into late afternoon, evening and then the night, and everyone has relaxed into a mild abandon born out of the euphoria of the day and possibly a little intoxication, with the risk of odd party frolics abound seek refuge near the bar and away from the hubbub of misdemeanor and under no circumstances be lured, lest tempted to be led onto the dance floor by any kind of admirer pulling you by the pride and joy you have kept tied perfectly in place for the day. It’s not tasteful, it will undoubtedly ruin the knot and quite possibly stretch the fabric.
