    Trust me, if it's got "Black tie" on the invitation, "optional" or not, wear a bow tie. If it's a posh do, and I mean posh-posh not just dressed-up, you should go the whole hog.

    Dinner Jacket: black cummerbund; black bow-tie. Judging by your car's extras you can also afford: black patent leather shoes; and a white vented shirt with covered-buttons, double-cuffs and a wing collar. Oh, and buy a real bow-tie, not a tied one from Debenhams, and learn to tie it. It's easy, practice calmly in a mirror a few times a day and you'll be doing it in your sleep within a week. Real bow ties separate the rednecks from the gents...so, up to you lol.

    Well said Maestro, and can i add, that once purchased, these things never age, so you will still be able to bring them out of the wardrobe in 5 -10 years time and if you have not put on a load of weight, wear them again.

    Exactly: never fear being over-dressed; it only shows the others up for not making the effort.

    Thanks guys, glad you all stood up with me on this, so many guys these days dress-up like ****e: what happened?

    Oh, and the cool thing to do these days is when the evenings winding down and people have had a bot to drink and shirts get loose, undo your bow tie so it's tabs are hanging and undo your top button. If you're single and there's single ladies there I bet you a tenner a girl will comment on it being a real bow tie and hey, ice-breaker. when that happens, remember this post and raise your glass to me :-)

    Love is in the air......

    Well said, you can never be too over dressed, I do like to under dress when im jus faffing about, but when dressed up, it does make so much of a difference, even more so when people say, "blummin eck, you scrub up well dont ya!!!"

    I'd go the whole hog too!

    I've got a Gala Night coming up in October and I can't wait! Now I don't wear suits that often. Infact I can't remember how many years its been since I've worn one. But I like looking sharp every now and then. The comments like Nilz said make you feel good too!
