Traditional black tie attire consists of a black bowtie, tuxedo and shiny shoes—but I decided to create a real-world take on this sartorial pastime. The coat is what makes the look and this slim double-breasted model from H&M does the trick. The fit is key, and once you've got the right silhouette up top things will fall into place from there. Keep the rest of the outfit clean and contoured—that means your slimmest black pants and a pair of dress boots to complement a classic knit tie and button-down combo. While this outfit isn't exactly gala worthy, it'll make a surefire transition from a day at the office to drinks with the lucky lady.
