Tuxedo subtle pattern

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is a subtle texture/pattern in the fabric acceptable in a fully black Corneliani tuxedo?

It's a perfect fit for me and looks great I think.

Can you not illustrate the pattern; not exactly a good idea as evening dress is the second most formal attire for a man. It is always in the class of less is more and there are few prizes on offer such a breach. There is a grave danger that you will though of as the door keeper or some manner of lowly flunkey,

I haven't found a picture which would have the same pattern but this one kind of reminds of it although it is not the same. Also it's less shiny.

Texture will reduce its formality and potentially make it look more fashionable rather than classic.

 

When will you be wearing it? To a cocktail party, for the hell of it etc then it'd be ok. If it was something more formal like a wedding, ball or such then it is likely to look too informal unless you want to be a peacock.

I will be wearing it in a ball which has a black tie optional dresscode.
