    A friend of mine is emphatic that a white double breasted dinner jacket with a shawl collar is literally impossible to find. He wants to find one in order to become the reincarnate image of Humphrey Bogart as portrayed in "Casablanca," the iconic movie.

    I told him the folks on the Style Forum can find any piece of clothing that ever existed. So, don't let me down. Do you guys know where he can find something like this elegant and legendary jacket.

    Thanks so much.

    There was a black version made by Purple label, never see a white DB dinner suit in RTW.

    Please get a good tailor to made this, it is very hard to make a good looking, well constructed white DJ because no mistakes can be made.

    I found a 40s version at a thrift store. It's being tailored as we speak.
