When To Wear Morning Wear
Morning wear is essentially formal day wear, reserved for some of the most formal occasions. Second only to White Tie, the beauty of morning wear is in the strict protocol of each component, and to successfully execute morning wear is an art.
Despite its name, morning dress may be worn to afternoon social events that begin before five o'clock in the afternoon but not to events beginning after six o'clock in the evening.

Choosing Your Suit
Morning suits traditionally come in two designs; a traditional black feather weave coat paired with cashmere stripe trousers or an all-grey three-piece suit.
If you opt for a traditional black feather weave morning suit, a double or single-breasted waistcoat of a contrasting colour such as pales, light blues, or grey to bring a splash of colour to your dress.
The full grey suit is arguably more contemporary and appropriate for less formal engagements. Favoured by Hollywood elite such as Gregory Peck, you'll cut a smart profile if you opt for a grey three piece morning suit.
