Are you not looking at it?
Ill-fitting. Cheesy lapel facings. Flap pockets (also with cheesy facings). Wilted bow tie (looks pre-tied).
Perhaps I'm being ignorant but isn't this just a black suit with satin lapel facings?
Sure, but even "correct" dinner suits are just modified lounge suits to begin with. The standard peak-lapeled, single-button dinner jacket would just be a black suit jacket, if not for the silk facings.
Let's not forget the mailman stripe down the trouser leg
Yes it's a modified lounge suit, but there are too many "unmodified" details here... the notch lapels, flap pockets, two buttons... maybe there's even a back vent...
I can't see the satin stripe on the trousers, but that could be my monitor.
You'requite the stickler. I approve.
What color longwings with black tie?
Since there is only one to choose from...
thinking of driving up to the Cape for a week. Anything I must see?
Do you think Cole Haans or Kenneth Coles will go better with this?
(... been to 3 weddings this year ... this was the tux-of-choice for all three.)
Ha, is that that CK PoS? I think I had to wear that one last summer too.
I recently purchased a midnight navy, 1 button shawl collar, Kiton dinner jacket that I'd like to wear to a wedding in a month or so.
1. It came with side vents, a proper dinner jacket does not have vents, correct?
2. I was told I wear black tuxedo pants with the jacket, and since the facing of the jacket is navy silk, a navy bow tie, what color shoes do I wear?
Also, anyone know where I can find a navy cummerbund?
I assume since my bow will be navy the cummerbund has to match?
