Just as the tuxedo is the core of the black-tie dress code, the tailcoat – or dress coat – is the core of the white-tie dress code.
If you’re unfamiliar, the white-tie dress code is considered more formal than the black-tie dress code – it is, after all, the most formal of dress codes. The core of white-tie is the tailcoat. The tailcoat jacket is quite distinct from anything commonly worn today, with the most noticeable different compared to suit or tuxedo jackets being that it is longer in the back, with ‘tails’ (hence the name) that extend to the knees.
Getting clothes custom-made is an excellent option. Not only will they fit you the way you want them to fit, but you’ll also be able to customize them to suit your personal tastes and style, allowing you to better express your individuality. It allows for more variety, especially when it comes to clothes that aren’t as available off-the-rack – such as incredibly formal clothing, like tailcoats. Besides, when it comes to events with a white-tie dress code, is ready-to-wear clothing even worthy of your consideration? And believe it or not, a custom-made tailcoat doesn’t have to cost a fortune. At Mister Singh’s Fashion Gallery, we are known for our high-quality clothing, offered at reasonable prices.
Naturally, you want to pick the right tailor to get your clothes made. This is especially the case with lesser-known garments such as the tailcoat, not to mention clothing for the most formal of occasions where the finer details are more important than ever. We’ve got extensive experience custom making all sorts of men’s and women’s formal clothing – including the tailcoat.
