This is a vintage bespoke shawl-collared dinner suit (tuxedo) in navy worsted wool by J. Liggio of West Brighton, Staten Island. Navy dinner suits are considered just as classic as black tuxedos and often superior because they actually appear black at night unlike true black tuxedos, which can sometimes have a greenish tint. The facings are all in smooth silk. The jacket is single button, darted, has besom pockets (still sewn shut), is fully canvassed, and unvented...

Footjoy shell cordovan tassel loafers. They've seen a pretty good amount of wear and have various dings commensurate with that wear - the most significant being on the toe of the right shoe.

The outsoles still have at least 1/2 of their life remaining and the heels have been protected by heel savers. I didn't use shoe trees for the pictures so you can see the actual...
