Absolutely nothing claims "classic style" as much because a tailor-made tuxedo. Whether the tuxedo comes with matching or contrast silk lapels they certain really are a trademark associated with that classic look.
The dress code "black tie" is historically equal to the traditional black tuxedo, consisting of a black dinner jacket, an optional black waistcoat or cummerband, a white tuxedo shirt and a black bow ties. If warmer weather comes into play it is acceptable to opt for a white dinner jacket instead of a black. Remember that you black tuxedo can have several different choices - the dinner jacket can either be single- or double-breasted and you can choose whatever lapel you want without overstepping the formal boundaries.
All our black tuxedos are of course custom fit and cut after your own personal measurement.
