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. These elegant white tie tails are cut from 100% wool worsted barathea sourced from a mill in Huddersfield, renowned for its long tradition in this cloth.
The tails are finished with a pure silk grosgrain peak lapel and matching buttons.
