That doesn't mean the rest of it isn't adventurous too biggrin.gif

I think it'll turn out nicely...the fabric is significantly darker than it seems in the photos. I'll probably mostly wear it to dinner parties at home in NC, and occasionally to cocktails or whatever in DC. Probably usually without a tie.

Some casual moleskin trousers, just a little work to do on these:

Not quite yet, but that's why there are fittings...

I actually really like how the blue looks in the pics - nice shade

For a normal suit yes, but the kind of aqua-marine that comes across on my monitor would be a bit too light for a tuxedo with black silk facings and all.

It can be your Pitti Tux

Or, if it doesn't come out well, his Pity Tux.

I might get a white tux jacket one day. But I fear Jeeves would disapprove.

Still one of the best clothing-related clips on YouTube.

I've always liked the Steed jacket that was made for Glenn O"Brien.

I so rarely get to wear a DJ that I think I might just get something interesting as my default and fall back on my existing meh black suit if I need to be somber and correct. I promise it won't be gold.

If you're going for something "wild" I would always go for a cream shawl db. It's classic enough such that you don't look like an idiot who is begging for attention, but a good iteration of it is a real rarity in today's world, which distinguishes you in a positive sense.
