A traditional tuxedo done in deep chocolate brown is tasteful in a non-ubiquitous way.

I call that creative disdain.

Well, we all have to be contradictory in some way or another.

If these weren't Charvet, but some random brand found at Marshalls, would people still want to wear them? Seems like novelty clothing to me, regardless of the manufacturer.

I'd wear one regardless of whether it was Charvet or another brand, but the distinction would be that it had to be high quality.

I doubt there are even a lot of manufacturers making this sort of outdated style now.

If I were going to that sort of event I would wear:

Midnight blue tuxedo with chocolate brown grosgrain lapels
Light lemon yellow ruffled formal shirt
Brown bow-tie
Black patent leather opera pumps, preferably vintage Cleverley bespoke with large square buckles. Sort of looks like Roger Vivier.
A white gardenia

Lanvin purple tux jacket with black lapels
Lanvin floppy velvet purple bowtie
Jil Sander black shirt
Martin Margiela gold stripe "marching band/legionaire" pants
YSL grey w/ red stripe wool socks
Lanvin red patent leather tassle loafers

whatever you do, do not wear those red loafers and floppy bow tie. Think of poor Thom.

I've been tempted to buy a Thom Browne tuxedo; but, I feel for this occasion I need something with more oomph.

I don't think Thom will really care what you wear as long as you send him some support.

Those Charvet shirts should have studs, not buttons.

The pants kind of short and you'll see my socks in the loafers...so there will be some TB aspects to it.
