TrousersBy Dinner suit team
The rules behind the dinner suit/black tie trouser are a lot simpler than the jacket. Black tie trousers do not have turn-ups or belt loops but do have outer seams made up of a single silk braid matching the lapel from the tuxedo jacket. Some trousers have elastic tighteners on the outside of the waist however if you need additional support then gentlemen wear braces.
