The worst thing was his videos on the shirt. And did you see his outfit! Dress pants with a tux jacket and an unbuttoned dress shirt!

 

He works in a combined bridal and tuxedo rental store. That should tell you all you need to know about his familiarity with the conventions of formal evening dress.

I wholly agree.

 

Additionally, there should be far more of the (single) shirt cuffs peeking out at the sleeve ends. My tailor says 3/4", apparently.

Interesting to note the different waistcoat styles, and choice of pocket square arrangement.

 

I'm a new poster to the Forum , but a sometime avid reader, and note with interest the several posts over time, asking how to personalise full evening dress. As shown here, perhaps choice of marcella waistcoat design and pocket square arrangement are two of the only truly correct ways of personalising what is , otherwise designed to be a uniform.

 

Would be interested in your thoughts.

If you look closely, I believe the Nicholas Brothers have shawl lapel tailcoats, although it is very hard to tell.

 

But the white tie attire they have is pretty similar (outside the differences between 30s and 40s fashion) - trousers, waistcoats, and jackets all meet at or above the natural waist, black oxfords, wing collar, white tie, and white pocket square.

Yeah, Stormy Weather has probably the best end sequence of any of the great Hollywood musicals but it's so much less well known than Singin' in the Rain etc. which I am sure has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the fact that the cast were black...
