    Opinions please on this take on Black Tie from Prince Charles

    Came across this photo in another thread. It looks like it might be midnight blue silk of some sort. Can anyone identify the material? How about the cut, is it A&S? I've always worn shawl collared, single breasted, black wool worsted dinner jackets, but I think this one looks great. I have a...
