I assume your Googling also produced this resume of the state of evening dress in the late Victoria period and the birth of the short dinner jacket.
The cartoon on the left side seems to confirm that such problems did indeed exist then!
Didn't Obama wear a white bow tie with a black tie rig at his first Inaugural Ball? During the period of confusion that followed the birth of the dinner jacket this option was very often seen I gather. Go for it!
I must look up Red Sea Rig...

Yes, I know what you mean.
My modern (made in India) Florsheims have sharper creases but to me they look just as ugly. I just wish leather wouldn't crease!!
Hi all, I'm selling some FP and Baracuta stuff, all new....having a clear out. Most of it is size small and medium. Will discount a little if you want to buy outside of Ebay. Cheers for looking. http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/ps2-games-genuine-seller
God - it's a depressing thought, however stylish the outfits you describe. I have seen small green shoots in London of a return to a slightly more formal wardrobe among younger men. All the interest in Italian CBD is another example of perhaps a temporary halt in the rapid decline?
Anyway, I'm not sure if we have considered this piece before. Apologies if we have:
