The title pretty much says it all just wondering what the differences between a tux and a dinner jacket are.

I know that. I would never dress the way you do (that should go without saying) but I think your approach is real and valid, and you are a fine (and intellectually honest) spokesman for it.I wanted to show Manton that I was actually aware of such rules, and am not (in most cases) arguing with him out of ignorance.
Lately, I've taken to calling the ensemble a "suit of dinner clothes." Damn if I can't bring myself to say tuxedo. And "dinner jacket and trousers" sounds so cumbersome.Ernest is correct. Technically, there is no such term as "dinner suit." English tailors will say "dinner jacket and trousers".
