Not in the market for morning dress (can't imagine ever needing it) but saw something interesting at the Barney's Warehouse Sale that I thought was odd for a morning ensemble. It was by Armani (usually pretty traditional in formal attire) and consisted of striped morning trousers, a champagne/cream waistcoat and then a black jacket that looked like a notch lapel dinner jacket (tuxedo, not tail coat) instead of a grey long coat. Is this to full morning dress what black tie is to white tie, or is it a "contemporary" interpretation of morning dress the way a two button skinny lapel tuxedo with belt loops on the trousers is the "modern" version of evening dress?
