A bow tie is fine on a suit, but I generally think it looks a little more whimsical and is considered a little less serious. I think that’s why when most people wear a bow tie with a suit, they generally go for brighter more fun and interesting colors. But I think if you’re going to have black suits (especially slim cut ones) with black ties, the skinny tie is probably the way to go. I’m not sure how that will work with the groom in a black tux with a black bow tie, though.

But, this is coming from a guy who prefers skinny ties and doesn’t wear bow ties, so bear that in mind. I’m gonna go do a search for pictures now.

I couldn’t find a lot of pictures that really applied at all, unfortunately, but based on that top picture (even though I think the groomsmen are actually wearing tuxes in that), I think it should work out fine. As long as the black in the ties match the bow tie and the suits are the same shade as the tux, I think it’ll work out. Plus they can all have matching white pocket squares and/or similar bouts to pull them all together.

Granted all of my groomsmen wore mismatched shades of dark grey suits while I wore a very light grey, so I don’t have as much experience matching everybody well, but this sounds like it should wotk fine.

Good luck!

Actually we are doing the same exact thing. My Fiance is wearing a black tux with a bow tie. All the grooms men are wearing black suits with black bow ties.

We’re doing the same thing too. My fiance has a slim black tux, a formal tux shirt with French cuffs, and he’s wearing a black bow tie and ivory pocket square.

The groomsmen all have black slim cut suits that we bought for them. They’ll wear white shirts and bow ties and pocket squares too.

I don’t think bow ties look weird on regular suits, especially if they’re slim cut suits. It’s a modern look. I see tons of guys rocking this look even on nights out with a slim blazer and trousers.
