The invitation may say “Black Tie,” but the interpretation can be as varied as the age, size and look of every man. All tuxedos are not created equally, but as our WL bachelor party illustrates — from athletic groom, to groomsman, to distinguished Dad, to annoying teenage brother — your choice can be distinctive and reflect your style.
