    Traditional formal clothing

    Hey everybody

    Orchestra conductors dress with a quite interesting and not so common idea of formal wear.

    some examples here, especially no. 4:

    w
    hat is this special blazer?
    and how about the shirt collar, showing the usually hidden tail of the bowtie?


    I don't want to ask colleagues because they are usually lack style. I know think of moving from a usual suit to one of these..
    would love some helpful ideas.

    That style of dress is called "White Tie" and is the most formal of traditional evening wear styles.

    Yes, largely they are wearing an evening tailcoat (though the last man is wearing a white summer dinner jacket). My suggested link is to the excellent Black Tie Guide: Black Tie Guide | Etiquette: White Tie Definition and Black Tie Guide | White Tie: Introduction
