Style: The Navy Tux

November 20, 2013 1 min read

As GQ Style Guy Glenn O'Brien once wrote: "When Edison's lightbulb replaced the candle, it made the black tuxedo look a bit green. It took a gentleman of the rank of the Duke of Windsor to discover that a very dark blue tux looked blacker than black in artificial light. Lighting might have improved, but midnight blue is still an excellent choice." We couldn't agree more, which is why we've engineered two versions: the cotton navy tuxedo from our Fall 2013 collection, which British comedian Steve Coogan wore to last week's Governors Awards in Hollywood; and a wool number Mark Duplass rocked last winter at the premiere of Zero Dark Thirty. The cotton is available on our website, and for wool inquiries contact Hilliary Latham at hilliary@toddsnyder.com.
