    Straight over tapered, TBM. Both the SL-100x and ST-100x are slim.

    MJ Bale put these in my mailbox today:

    Wish one of them was shawl collar, and one was midnight blue :satisfied:

    Still, given the paucity of quality dinner suits in Aus, this is a nice option to have.

    Spot on. No point buying customers at no margin if you plan to jack the price up in the near future.

    not a big fan of the detailing on the lapels for Franco and Mauritz. the buttoning point on the navy one looks a tad high for my likes.

    The Franco is clearly made to appeal to the R&B crowd, while the Mauritz is for the Henry Bucks crowd.

    Anyone's had a chance to drop by on the new Double Monk shoe store in Melbourne? I am curious about their Lobb and EG pricing

    Basically I see black tie as conservative with small permissible deviations.

    If it says black tie and you feel rebellious teenage angst sneaking up - then grow up - don't go if you don't like it.

    Otherwise conform and try to stand out, subtly, on details - deep dark blue navy is fine, suede navy slip ons = fine, no socks = immature idiot.

    i dont mind midnight navy for a tux

    I dunno about the slippers though unless you were at Hugh Hefner's mansion... in which case a robe would be more appropriate than a tux ;)
