The Dress Code at the Nobel Banquet

White Tie and Tails


For gentlemen who are guests at the Nobel Banquet in Stockholm, this means wearing a black tailcoat with silk facings, sharply cut away at the front, black trousers with two rows of braid down each leg, white stiff-fronted shirt, white stiff wing collar attached to the shirt with collar studs, white bowtie, white low-cut waistcoat, black dress socks and black formal shoes. Shirt studs and cufflinks should be silver or white. A white handkerchief is usually worn.

Those who have been awarded state decorations usually wear them: miniature medals plus up to four breast stars, a narrow neck riband and a broad riband or sash.
