That looks a bit lighter than midnight blue to me, though I suppose it's under directly sunlight, and one rarely sees dinner suits in daylight. I don't think there's anything wrong with it, but query whether you want to draw extra attention to your lapels. Shawls are already a bit unusual these days. It's much more common to see black lapels on a midnight tux.
As an aside, I feel your pain regarding the price of a midnight tux. It's very disappointing that the reasonably priced MTM brands don't seem to offer midnight navy options for tuxes. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
Yep, that way round looks fine (and I have it too). Not sure why it looks fine, compared to the reverse, but somehow it does to my eye.
Anyway, leaving that issue aside, I can't understand why it would cost an MTM supplier twice as much to have a tux made in midnight navy rather than black? Most midnight navy cloths suitable for a DJ & trousers are in the same book as the black ones, aren't they (at least that's what I recall when I was looking through them)? I can't see why one should cost more. What am I missing?
