Dining etiquettes for MenDon’t we all dread committing faux pas at social dos? What if your fork accidently drops or you use the wrong dessert spoon? What should be a conversation starter when you are seated next to a total stranger? More often than not we all confront etiquette dilemmas such as sending RSVPs, timings, plus-one, table manners and other social graces.

So when invited to a social do – a high tea, a fine dining restaurant or a black tie affair, take a bit of time to mull over a few details that will make you look good.

Best dress bets for
High tea: Linen trousers / shirt in pastel shades, a neat pair of loafers.

Fine dining evening: Full sleeved evening shirt with trousers, leather footwear and accessories.

Black tie affair: Exactly that – white dress shirt, black tie and fine accessories and footwear!

DO
