    No, at least not any more. On this particular cruise there were two "formal nights" that were black tie options. Every other night was casual (although long trousers and a jacket were "required"). We knew that when we booked the cruise, of course. But we just decided that we wanted to have every night be formal night.

    Thank you
    Yes, I am going to wear a white dial, black leather strap watch

    It isn't a true "dress watch" but it will be more proper than the metal bracelet Rolex

    This red silk dinner jacket is kinda habit-forming...

    The jacket is by a Thai tailor called In Style Tailors, of Phuket. Everything else except the tie, studs, and shoes is by Hemrajani. Tie by Le Noeud Papillon, shoes are Church's for Brook Brothers, and studs are by Longmire. My wife is wearing Camille Flawless and Christian Louboutin. This was taken in the lobby of the Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco.

    Watch out, you may relaunch the mid-century fashion for coloured DJs!

    Agree, that red DJ in silk is really striking and IMO balances traditional style with a modern twist in a fantastic way... love it!!!
