Something else to consider: A brand new set of evening clothes will have less gravitas than an older one. Since you don't mind ebay, what about considering vintage dinner jackets that you can spruce up a bit at the tailor's in time for the wedding?Thanks for chiming in. Shawl just has that look of "I own this place" at least to me, and looks more custom in today's environment.
Yeah, the lighter navy is a no go for me but the midnight is really cool!!
It's funny that the midnight appears DARKER than black in low light.
I may be in a friend's wedding coming up, but I am leaning towards that midnight color.
Yeah, peak is peak formality. I definitely won't be getting notched I found one on Spier that's midnight but not in my size... I need to visit my local tailor to get sizes so it's spot on.
Have a double breasted peak lapel suit that is P.I.M.P. I am 6'7'' and thin, so the peak is really commanding. Normal to broad-ish shoulders but I really like the shawl look.
Problem is going to be finding a midnight shawl that isn't custom (or expensive) since I think peak is ubiquitous.
They will fit differently than modern jackets, which tend to be cut like suits, so knowing your measurements exactly will be crucial.
