Black Tie Stand Outs 2

The Midnight Blue Tuxedo


Menswear traditionalists believe midnight blue to be more appropriate than black for formal attire. The argument is that a deep saturated blue is richer, and thus darker, than a flat black in evening light.

Unlike a shawl collar (which is strictly-bowtie), a peak lapel jacket gives you the option to wear a straight tie as well.


Our super 120s midnight tuxedo (paired here with our Tobacco Cashmere Overcoat) is a very dark and elegant navy, offering just a subtle contrast against the black grosgrain trimmings.
