Burgundy Velvet with Satin Peak Lapel - Picture & Velvet by Scabal
A masterful look for any formal functions, prestigious galas, evening weddings, society soirees - the tuxedo still rules the evening wear roost. It's sophistication lies in it's simplicity: a single-breasted, one-button, ventless jacket in jet black or midnight blue, twinned with subtly detailed trousers. The shawl collar, a classic, though a tailcoat-inspired peaked-lapel tux jacket adds a further layer of formality. Beneath the eponymous black tie ( choose from butterfly or batwing style; silk or self-tie is a must ) , winged-collar shirts are easily twinned but, for slightly more comfort, the thirties' style, double cuffed, turndown collar shirt with a pleated or pique detailed front finish ensembles this evening look perfectly.
