Formal Adaptability: A Formal Suit Five Ways - 4

A charcoal suit is one of the most useful backgrounds for an evening event. Where black tie would be excessive but an office-look would be inappropriate, wearing a monochrome ensemble with a white shirt, grey pattern tie, grey silk square, black velvet waistcoat and black Oxford shoes provides a sleek look. 

Not 'pretending' to be black tie - in other words 'Hollywood' black tie - is crucial, which is why the application of grey is essential. Perfect for cocktail bars, late lounges, evening functions and smart dinners.

Waistcoat - H&M

Suit - Marks & Spencer

Black shoes - Zara

Tie - Tie Rack

Pocket square - Tie Rack
