Founded way back in 1898 on St James’s Jermyn Street, T.M. Lewin surely know a thing or two about gentlemanly garments of the highest quality. So for the modern gent who’s looking for a little sartorial flair this black tie season, here are some of the best accessories from T.M. Lewin.

Dress Shirt Studs

Every gentleman should own a dress shirt, especially for the black tie season. This means you’ll be needing some subtle yet high-quality studs to keep your torso hidden. Try this black and silver combination.

The cummerbund is a black tie must. It simply won’t do to turn up to a swanky event without one. Always keep it traditional, black, and satin if possible – like this suitable number.

Again, the black tie attire should resonate tradition and subtlety, so an unassuming pair of cufflinks is vital to complete the look. These Onyx diamante cufflinks merge the line between traditional and contemporary perfectly.

The bowtie is the one area of the black tie outfit that you can have a little fun with – little being the operative word here. Instead of your standard black satin bowtie, why not opt for velvet. We particularly like this one.

Pocket Squares

Finally, the addition of a pocket square will fully complete the black tie outfit. Again, subtlety is key, but a little flash of contrasting colour will work wonders. This white dotted silk pocket square is the exact item you should be looking to purchase.
