The Midnight Brown Tuxedo
October 27th, 2014
To our loyal readers: my apologies for the slower than regular content lately. We will be back to a daily schedule after our relaunch in a few weeks, along with added features and a new content direction. As I’ve mentioned, the team and I have been knee-deep in updating the website and brand. Articles of Style is growing up… Plenty more on that soon.
For now, I wanted to quickly highlight one of my new favorite tailored pieces. You know I love formalwear – it represents man at his finest. Elegant. Classy. Charming. We’ve showcased several versions of the classic midnight blue tuxedo, which is the most traditional choice for formal cloth. This one here is just a slight spin on it, based on how much I love brown suits. The midnight chocolate is a dark hue that, like navy, absorbs light and can look richer than flat black in evening settings.
Some guys have a thing against wearing black & brown together, but I think it looks very regal here with the black shawl, trims, and bowtie. Just another way to stand out from the crowd, while paying homage to the traditional “rules” of menswear, of course.
Thanks, as always, for reading.
Yours in style,
