Dress Codes

There are a few things to remember when choosing the right suit for you.

  1. The formality of the event.
  2. The venue. 
  3. The dress code, usually specified on the invitation.
 
Here is a brief guide on popular dress codes and how the team at Mandurah Formalwear can help you keep looking your best at any occasion.
 
Black Tie
This means formal with usually the option of Classic or Creative attire. Classic black tie incudes a tuxedo/dinner suit with formal white dress shirt, shirt studs and black cummerbund and bow tie. Black waitcoats are also a popular option. Creative black tie allows individuality with outfiting but usually indicates a dark coloured suit most commonly a dinner jacket.

White Tie
Is the height of formality and has a strict dress code. This includes a black tails dress coat and trousers with a white wing collared formal shirt. Also included is a white waitcoat and bowtie and white gloves. It is only worn to events after 6pm in the evening - during the daytime a morning suit is worn.
 
Formal & Semiformal
Formal occasions (usually specified on the event invite) ask for creative black tie options or a dark coloured suit with dress shirt, tie and waitcoat. Semiformal invites depend on the time of day the event is taking place as daytime would include any coloured lounge suit* without a tie. During the evening, a dark coloured lounge suit would be preferrable.
* A lounge suit is a daytime alternative to a formal suit

Cocktail
Does not have to be a formal suit, however any coloured lounge suit with a shirt and tie is appropriate.
