It looks fabulous, but get it wrong, and it looks cheap. We are a default destination for the sartorially savvy when it comes to completing a black tie look. Feel like the perfect Prince Charming or Debonair Dan with our immaculate and compliment your dinner jacket with Budd's Black Tie shirts and accessories.

Black Tie Tip

Keep your bow self-tied and your collar simple. Wing-tipped collars with Black Tie are a strict no-no.
