A dinner suit is worn for occasions where “black tie” is required. A semi-formal two-piece suit for evening wear, distinguished by satin or grosgrain silk jacket lapels, and a strip of braid along the outside leg of the trousers. This was created in the 1870’s as a substitute for the tailcoat.
Our suits are made from black barathea wool and a shawl lapel single-breasted dinner suit exudes classic style. We also have double-breasted jackets with peak lapels available in addition to traditional white starched dress shirts with a marcella front and turn-down collar; to be worn with cufflinks and black dress studs. This accompanied by a black silk barathea bow-tie and cummerbund, patent dress shoes and a crisp white pocket square completes the outfit.
