Dinner Jacket USA
Dinner jackets USA had its rich origin back in the summer of 1886 when New York millionaire James Potter asked for a dinner suit recommendation from the Prince of Wales (named later as King Edward VII of United Kingdom). The prince, having worn a new style of smoking jacket, sent Potter to his tailors, Henry Poole & Co, one of the founders of Savile’s Row. Potter brought the suit with him and worn it on one of Tuxedo Park Club’s social gathering. The elite members of the club copied the suit’s design and made it their informal dinner uniform. The new dinner jacket was an evolution from the evening tailcoats worn during that era. It became generally popular that it was associated with the name of the club, tuxedo.
Dinner jackets come in three basic colors: black, midnight blue and white. All-white tuxedo suits as well as other hues are worn exclusively in the domain of weddings and proms, and are seldom seen in grown-up functions. On the other hand, black is the accepted norm and midnight blue is the equally correct color for semi-formal event.
The elements of dinner jackets USA are the jacket, trouser, waistcoat or cummerbund, black tie, and dress shoes. Of all these components, the jacket has the most details in the suit. These include the jacket model and style, fabric and finishes.
Dinner jackets can be single or double-breasted. One button is the traditional single-breasted jacket while the two-buttons is becoming an acceptable contemporary alternative. The rule of thumb for contemporary jackets is to always leave the bottom button undone. The notch lapels are the most popular option for single breasted jackets. However, peak and shawl lapels are the traditional choice. The peak lapel is an import from the tailcoat’s formality while the shawl channels the relaxed continuity of the smoking jacket elegance. Lapels can either have satin or grosgrain facings. In addition, wool, cashmere and mohair fabrics offer polished and well-groomed look, showing sophisticated elegance in the jacket.
