A dinner suit (or "tuxedo" as it is known in America) is worn for occasions where "black tie" is required. Made from black barathea or wool/mohair, a single breasted dinner suit is pure elegance. Complete with appropriate shirt and accessories, black tie attire is a refined and timeless classic style. Facing on the coat should be silk whilst trousers should feature a single line of braid down the outside leg.
Budd Shirtmakers represents the very best in London’s famous shirtmaking and haberdashery tradition. Located in the heart of St. James’s and Mayfair, the company cuts and makes all of it shirts by hand, in both its on site cutting room above the shop and at its workshop in Andover, Hampshire. It uses the same techniques and skills that it has used since the firm’s inception in 1910. Its focus is on British-made, with nightwear, dresswear and accessories all sourced and crafted from within the UK.
