Agree with T4 and Dan - the 'creative tux' thing is not a great call.
That said, if you get it SB with the peak lapel, you could wear it out for nightlife . That said, with the grosgrain facing, I wonder even about that use for the coat.
Nope, just can't create the scenario where that is a great item for you.
BTW, do you already own the cloth?
