    Im thinking now maybe regular tux pants but cut in a 70's vein, slim through the hips with a subtle boot cut down the leg. I think Tom Ford may do this but I know labelking had some vintage trousers cut that way. And perhaps a ruffled shirt, too, if I could find a tasteful one.

    Mark Jacobs also cuts trousers like this - or did a few years ago.

    You coud try boot cut and a ruffled shirt, but if someone calls out, "Yeah, baby!" in the first 30 minutes I would dump the costumey gear for something more subtle. The coat holds up on it's own.

    I like Pucci and think that jacket is pretty damn fun(ky).

    Obviously it's only wearable for fun & informal occasions but within that, I think would look great with the usual rest of the dinner suit oufit. I do like the idea mentioned upthread of using a ruffled or pleated shirt with it, to complete the informalising effect. Normal dinner suit trousers & shoes though; nothing crazy needed there.
