Men’s elegance on the Emmy Awards 2016 Red carpet - variations of tuxedo and even a try for a boutonnière
We asked the Men's Fashion Cluster Ambassador Dandy to comment on the style of the celebrities on the red carpet, as he has a sharp eye for style and a witty language. Here is what he told us about the dress code of the celebrities attending the Emmy Awards 2016:

And it is a shame that most of them, even celebrities, still wear ill-fitting black ready-to-wear suits.

This year the awards ceremony was held at the Teatro Antico, Taormina, Sicily Island, Italy, on July 2, 2016. And what a surprise - all gentlemen were dressed in similar black suits, making them look one and the same.
The suit says, 'I'm not here to mess around.' Which is just one big reason why a suit is a good idea for a business meeting.'
The big question is not which movie is about to win the prize, but which dress code will be preferred by the celebrities - Black or Color Suits?
Black tie is a dress code of formal wear for evening events and social functions, derived from British and American costume conventions of the 19th century.

Some men do it, but they are still few.

According to the Formal dress code, men wear classic suits, preferably black or evening blue. In some social circles Semi-formal can also mean Black Tie.

The gentleman unthinkably loves the fine fabrics of Loro Piana, delicately dramatic folds of Napolisu Мisura, smartly nervous, yet perfect naturalness of hand stitching, more than sensual, thoughtful proportions almost in the sense of the canon of Polykleitos, museum memory of labels with a monogram and a date of sewing, flirting authenticity of buttonholes, semi-closeness of the garment above the most expressive part of the human body - arm.
Most of the gentlemen - no matter if they are actors, producers, screenwriters, CEOs, etc. and the country they origin from - are dressed almost the same - black suits, white shirts, black bow-ties/ties. We know that this is the traditional set for the Black tie dress code, but...
