    Am I the only one who thinks his tuxedo looks like garbage? The color, the fit/shoulders... it's lighter than Navy.

    It's off in all respects. To wear that color well, he'd need the darker hair of his youth.

    There's a big difference between midnight blue and navy, and most of those are even lighter than navy. Awful.

    :foo: looks pretty good, as does Vox.

    Still not near as bad as Lapo's velvet abomination IMHO.

    In NSM's pristine, sleek, white new shop, I'm guessing there is a dartboard with Foo's face on it.

    So a question: for a non-black/non-blue/non-solid dinner jacket like Voxes - should it have grossgrain/satin lapels or be self-faced?

    I have a red tartan dinner jacket that has a black satin shawl lapel. But I don't know what traditional standards are in that respect.
