The Finishing Touches

Politix Wedding
The key with black tie is balance. It's your wedding day. You're in a black tux. Let the suit do most of the talking. Your job is to ensure nothing takes away from that pristine look. So: high-shine patent leather shoes, an in-proportion black bow tie, and a hint of subtle metallic hardware. Boom: groom-worthy.

If you're going to rock the tux, it's definitely worth investing in a good-quality tuxedo shirt. You can't really have one without the other. These are slicker than your average white shirt. Think wing collars, French cuffs and fine stretch fabrics. Again, you want something that won’t distract from that beautiful tux jacket, so no colours or crazy patterns—a light houndstooth or diamond stitch is a good way to go.
