English Regency dandy and icon, Beau Brummell, is credited for conceiving white tie dress. Today this most formal and exacting of dress codes is reserved for ceremonial occasions, formal balls and formal evening weddings. A single-breasted white marcella waistcoat is convention for white tie, owing to the pique weave which holds more starch and gives a stiffer look. This elegant design is cut from pure cotton marcella, and features a cotton back-panel and waist adjuster. Finished with mother of pearl buttons.
Wear together with; White Tie, Dress Shirt, and Bow Tie, Self Tied.
