You must not follow popular culture, have googled "midnight blue tuxedo", or read a recent men's magazines then. No problem. To each their own.
No idea why, but a dark blue (not midnight, too dark) lapel against a black tuxedo looks fantastic, while a black lapel against a midnight blue just looks a bit off to my eye. I guess I want the darkest color to be the majority
oh yeah and I just googled midnight blue tuxedo, I guess I got what you meant. It's something I have wanted since 5~6 years ago, no idea when it caught on.
