Does anyone know when Paul Stuart's next sale is, and if they typically include formalwear in the sale?
Kanye is wearing a Tory Burch tuxedo, according to Esquire. Is she starting a men's line? http://www.esquire.com/the-side/styl...s-2011-5677104 Another, much better picture of Colin. Great lapels and nice work on the pocket square. And Tom Ford - he always looks great, but the collar gap kills me.
Tonight is the annual Met Gala and the opportunity to laugh at how famous people dress is on par with the Oscars. First a couple good ones: Jay-Z in ivory (though not really warm enough yet and not a fan of the wing collar). Caleb Followill in a DB Firth looking a bit sloppier than usual. No idea what this fabric is on the dinner jacket. Any ideas? Notch. Is that a safety pin instead of a button? Atrocious. Well at least Hamish owns the look. I'm actually...

Honestly though if you don't feel like wearing a vest or cummerbund no one is likely to notice or care (James Bond didn't.) The braces you posted are fine, but...
Both of these are Phineas Cole.....Paul Stuart mainline has more 'normal' looking tuxedos. There's also a Phineas Cole midnight blue DB tuxedo that looks great.

Paul Stuart is not one of the brands I see a lot on here. The quality seemed very good, and the salesman very nice and professional. Any input on...
This is like Renaissance fair meets Alice in Wonderland.
