Black Tie Ensemble

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the annual degustation dinner and auction to raise money for the Suter Art Gallery at the Nelson Yacht Club.

Well-dressed, distinguished gents were turned out in their dapper best, and it got me thinking about accessories that maketh the ultimate handsome ensemble.

Of course, the suave suit is a must, but a few simple pieces of classic jewellery can make all the difference when dressing for a smart occasion.

Here’s a sleek little ensemble I put together with a few statement Benjamin Black favs.


Windsor 3-Piece Suit: Crane Brothers
Classic Tie Pin with Onyx: Benjamin Black Goldsmiths
1780 Verge Escapement Pocket Watch: Benjamin Black Goldsmiths
Quiff Signet Ring with Star Sapphire: Benjamin Black Goldsmiths
