Your wedding day surely is one of the most important days in your life, so you'll surely want to make your best impression. So, what is a wedding tie? TRaditionally, it is a silk tie in silver, black, white, or a combination thereof in a classic pattern paired with a dark suit, stroller suit (black jacket, grey vest and striped trousers) or a morning coat.
Very few collections exist which offer a selection of high quality wedding ties, and Fort Belvedere is one of them.

A classic outfit for your wedding day consists of either a dark charcoal three piece suit, white shirt and wedding tie, or a black jacket with peaked lapels, striped trousers and a vest in mid grey or buff. Traditionally the most formal wedding outfit - which is still the golden standard in Great Britain - is the morning coat with a top hat,a vest and a wedding tie. Of course, always wear a black polished plain toe shoe.
Most modern ties have thick interlinings and only allow for thick, bulky tie knots. With Fort Belvedere ties, you need not be limited to only one shape. Elegant gentlemen such as Prince Charles, or John F. Kennedy preferred worn smaller, elegant four-in-hand tie knots. Fort Belvedere allows you to tie small, regular and big tie knots! Choose the correct size tie for your stature for small and normal size tie knots, or chose the next longer tie for Balthus or double Windsor knots.
Begin by untying the knot it in the opposite way you tied it; never store ties knotted! Roll it up for a day to allow the wrinkles to relax, and then hang on a tie rack in your closet.
