Hi, I'm David Zyla. I'm in New York City at Against Nature with my friend Nathaniel Adams and today we're talking about how to wear a tuxedo shirt and tie. Alright, you're going to a black tie event, you're wearing your tuxedo, how do you put it all together? Well it's pretty simple. If you're going to do the traditional tuxedo look it's going to incorporate a bow tie with a formal shirt. And so what Natty is wearing right now is a great example of that. He's wearing what we call a wing collar shirt. You'll notice that the wing tips go behind the bow tie. Natty's also wearing studs with his shirt. And studs look like buttons, the only difference is a button is sewed to one side of the placket of the shirt where as a stud actually goes through two holes. One on the front placket and one on the back. Another thing that Nathaniel has incorporated into his look is a pocket hank. And that's also a great way to just give a little more pop to your tuxedo shirt and tie. And that's how you wear a tuxedo shirt and tie.
