The Smoking: how to wear it

Since the end of the nineteenth century, the smoking is the emblem of male elegance, and still today it has all its charm. If you do not have a smoking in your wardrobe, you should buy one as soon as possible and to avoid making style mistakes, read these few and simple rules, which are fundamental to feeling stylish and comfortable.


The first and most important thing to know about the smoking is that it is a man’s evening suit, so it is absolutely forbidden to wear it before 6pm. Do not wear it on all occasions but only when black tie is required. For the smoking jacket the most popular colors are black and dark blue and usually are single-breasted.
In the case of blazer, better with just one button. The revers of the jacket must be silky.
The shirt is rigorously white, to complement everything, you must not miss the papillon, strictly black, and the black Oxford shoes, to be worn with black silk socks.
