Signature shitty lighting. This time once again in the Greenbrier casino club bathroom.

The Formosa tuxedo at NMWA that I own might end up being what I wear when I get married (though that's a ways off). Might get a shawl collar ivory jacket made in matching fabric by them too to wear with the tuxedo pants as a warm weather black tie as well.
Check out Boris Custom Tailoring on Bethel Road. The only tailor I trust to work on my clothes. I just picked up two Formosas and dropped off 2 more Formosa suits, a pair of Formosa trousers and a pair of Rota flannels, and six Inglese shirts. They're very good there. Price is a bit high and turn around a bit slow but in this case I believe you get what you pay for
Had a ED54 yesterday that was plugged. Per our earlier discussion, ended up just letting it go about 40-50% in after trying to make it work. Instead went with a L'Atelier black label and followed that up with a Montecarlo. Very very good, the two of them.
Terrible picture, but this is my interview attire (black oxfords no vis):
Better pic in the pink bathroom:
NMWA pieces (would have worn my Inglese shirt instead of this one but hadn't gotten it back yet from the tailor):

I think I would very quickly be a single man if I tried to wear it all the time. Even the club we're members of is off limits, according to she who makes the rules.
So essentially I'm left with any event that prescribes a dress code that even vaguely hints at black tie
