It therefore makes sense that Jordan is one of the Golden Rules of the Smoking Trages broke when he attended the European premiere of his latest in the Rocky franchise in London this week.
The choice would have many tuxedo conservatives combing and shaking their heads, as the traditional tuxedo should of course be worn with a bow tie and nothing else. Prominent stylist Ilaria Urbinati told the Wall Street Journal that wearing a straight tie with a tuxedo depends on "" I'm not really committed to it. "
" If you wear a tuxedo, get it and make the fly, "she said.
Likewise, Tyler Mitchell, owner of San Francisco department store Wilkes Bashford, told The Post, "You'll see [a celebrity] every year in a leopard tie, I just do not think that's true."
According to British etiquette Debrett's, gentlemen following the black tie dress code should wear: a tuxedo jacket (no tuxedo), black pants with a natural cone, a white evening shirt, highly polished or patented Lace-up shoes and of course the all-important hand-tied bow tie whose size should match the size of the wearer.
These traditional black tie laws are becoming more and more stretched and stretched, but from fashionistas like Jordan to the point where it's perfectly acceptable now to wear a straight tie with a tuxedo, provided you wear them properly.
Contender Christian Bale has been campaigning for this look for some time.
Urbinati admitted that the look was "not inappropriate" and still falls into the realm of the black tie.
To distract the most daring look, there are a number of things you can learn from Jordan's outfit.
At first, Jordan wears a slightly thicker tie to those who are nowadays usually worn with a normal suit. Due to the wide lapels on the tuxedo jackets, a thin tie does not look good at all, so be sure to add something more sturdy. Second, if you look closely, the actor's tie will reveal finer details and patterns that add texture and character to the overall picture without disturbing it. He could have opted for a simple black silk tie that matched his lapel.
Jordan crowned the look with polished cocktail dresses and a Piaget watch tucked under his sleeve – truly a master class for mixing clothing style.
