I see your point, but I do think that morning coats are very elegant. Cut well, they really look sharp. And they don't have the "waiter" problem that I sometimes associate with the stroller, which it seems is only worn in the movies by maitre d's and hotel desk clerks.

I love the look of morning coats but wonder when they would be worn (if you're are not part of the British royal family that is). I guess that they are indeed becoming costumes. Mathieu

Yes. Almost dead. On life support.

Declining even for that venue and occasion, I'm afriad. Mere breaths away from death in America; maybe a few years or decades left in Europe.

Every wedding I've been to has required .... However, the weddings have all been family and friends in the UK. I guess I'll have to wait for my U.S. friends to get married to see what deal is... Since this may be years, I'll take your word for it, Manton.

American weddings are usually generally best described as informal down to casual. Morning dress? Maybe in NYC, blueblood New Englanders, and occasionally for some eccentrics in LA and SF. Anywhere else, and you would be called the kind of person for whom water just isn't good enough...

dorian: I assume these are people from an ... ahem ... elevated socio-economic status? Or is the wearing of morning coats to weddings still widespread throughout the UK?

I don't think that weddings prove that morning coats are alive and not becoming costumes. Clothes worn for weddings are costumes. The fact that weddings have to be invoked in order to "prove" that morning coats are still worn shows that they only exist as (wedding) costumes. Mathieu
