Style Tips: Wing Collars

Dear Horneteers,

 

A tip for the party season. Please, please, don’t wear a wing collar with black tie (dinner suit). Wing collars are for white tie (tails).

 

All of this was restarted by designers, high street hire and American television series. It is after all 1920’s/30’s with a particular three-piece look, now it looks over the top, too dressy.

 

Gentlemen you have to look elegantly masculine, it is for the ladies to go over the top.

 

That is all.

The Guv’nor.

 

PS. David Beckham looked awful with a wing collar with that dreadful designer morning suit. But he was probably earning a lot of money wearing it, good luck to you Mr. Beckham.
