You would wear a tuxedo to a funeral? Thats pretty messed up

Well, I didn't say I will wear a tuxedo to a funeral. I said I will wear a tuxedo to black tie events (which is required anyway). I would just wear a dark navy or grey suit to a funeral.

Sorry my bad, it was this statement that threw me off.

Though charcoal would be too dark for morning dress, it appears.

You just took two of my favorite things (hats and odd waistcoats layered under suits or odd jackets) and made them both look exceptional together. I salute you.
