Intentionally unspoilered for belly display purposes. Nicely done.

Wouldn't this be what people refer to as "creative black tie"?

More likely a variation of the Red Sea Rig, remembered incorrectly as that did away with the jacket..

For those of you who watch Downton Abbey, I really am in love with Mr. Talbot's dinner jacket...

I'd much rather have Mary than Talbot's dinner jacket.

I really like it, especially the lapels!  I've seen a lot of narrow lapels on dinner suits and I'm not a big fan - these look great.

Can anyone help me with the appropriate outerwear to wear with black tie? I have a pretty traditional black tie rig (all black with white shirt, peaked lapel, cummerbund and bowtie match the lapels, suspenders no belt loops, etc.) but I have yet to find a "proper" chesterfield that would be appropriate for black tie. Am I overthinking this, and would a dark (charcoal, midnight, black) chesterfield that fits well over my tuxedo be good?

I purchased a cashmere camel tone LBM double breasted polo coat for wearing over my suits or jackets in cold weather, but I feel that that would be highly inappropriate to wear with black tie, and I'd rather just go without an overcoat instead of wearing inappropriate outerwear.

Thanks for your input.

I'm in the same boat. This is Canada, and I can find myself in -20° weather easily.

I would imagine something like this would be perfect... but sadly this isn't my size.

There are moments where I actually find myself considering something like this.

Apparel Arts suggested attire for southern resorts: polo coat and sennit hat with a club band.











Esquire recommended similar attire for Florida, the Caribbean and Monte Carlo.

Just wear a dark overcoat. It only has to get you to the building. Once you're in, you're in.

I'd imagine Kent Wang would happily put together an overcoat to suit your specific taste. Peak lapels, covered buttons, welted pocket, MTM fit --

I should not have looked at that. Now I kinda want one.
