Not So Formal Formal WearNovember 20th, 2013
This is the best time of year (in my opinion). Fundraisers, galas and holiday parties are taking place all over the city, and there's no better time for gents to get decked out in their finest. This season, scrap the classic tux for something with a little more punch!
A Ralph Lauren Black Label dinner jacket and trouser paired up with a Stenstroms white twill shirt anchor this outfit. The accessories are what pull the look together - purple blotched bow tie by Michael Kaye, double monk-strap shoe by Di Bianco, Duchamp socks and a white linen pocket square.
The great thing about going this direction for your evening wear is the versatility you'll get from the pieces. Worn with the white shirt and pocket square, this jacket makes an awesome statement piece even with denim.
