Black Tie

Black Tie 

Black tie, formal and tuxedo are the same level of dress. All of these terms refer to a dinner suit worn with a dress shirt and ( usually ) bow tie. The suit must have satin on the lapel and should be a one button suit with either a peak or shawl lapel, trousers should have a satin stripe on the outside seam. 

Whilst black is considered the most correct navy is quite traditional and usually acceptable at a black tie event.

An ivory jacket can be worn to most formal events however we feel that at a wedding it is best left to the wedding party.

Peppers offers comprehensive options for black tie events.



All our hire suits are pure wool and made just for Peppers. Of the highest quality these super slim fit suits will meet the expectations of the most discerning of party goers. All our hire suits are altered to fit perfectly.

We also offer a range of dinner shirts, waistcoats and bows to hire.

A complete outfit will range between  $310.00 to $350.00. School formals start at $285.00. Complete alterations GST and dry cleaning are included in these prices.

Wedding parties should start the booking process around 12 weeks prior to the wedding with all sizes measured no later than 6 weeks prior. Hire is the perfect choice if your groomsmen are overseas or interstate – we will allocate sizes from their measurements and alter as required upon collection.

Black Tie hire for wedding  guests, school formals and balls is best booked in at least 2 weeks prior to being worn.
