The undisputed "King of the Night" of men's clothing is black. But what would tails be without the contrasting tailcoat shirt? Since Beau Brummel, 18th century England's iconic dandy, the radiant white of the shirt, bowtie, and vest has given this formalwear its splendour.
No outfit is more suitable for an evening than tails. On those long nights at the ball, the impeccably fitted tailcoat and the high, fixed collar shirt keep a gentleman in good form till morning hours.
