    I just paid the balance on the ivory silk Formosa dinner jacket I ordered earlier this year. I deferred to Greg's opinion on things like MoP vs. fabric covered buttons (went with fabric covered). I intend on wearing this jacket for warm-weather black tie, so his recommendation of fabric covered buttons made sense to me; MoP has a bit more flash to it, and draws the eye to the buttons when light glints off of it which is essentially the opposite of what I'm trying to accomplish wearing black tie.

    (Mind you that's just my opinion based on when I'll be wearing it and why I had it made)

    I think that if the intent is truly to wear it for black tie events, then fabric-covered is best.

    If you want to wear it in less formal situation (like the outfit below), then MOP would be great

    I would wear that outfit every day :inlove:

    Strongly considering the Faliero Sarti peak lapel for potential wedding duty.
