Classic Black Is The Standard But Blue Is Catching Up
Introduced in the 19th century at the posh Tuxedo Park resort, the tux quickly became the sophisticated standard of men’s formal wear. It’s essentially a suit, only with a few key differences: woolen woven fabric, lapels (notch, peak or shawl) that contrast with the fabric, and killer buttons (usually satin like the lapel). Tuxes are typically black but in recent years the trend has been dark blue.
