You can trace some momentous times in history and in 1865 one event would become pivotal to men's tailoring. It was when the Prince of Wales asked his tailor to produce a shorter morning jacket that he could use when he went to evening functions.
From this initial request, dinner suits were born, also sometimes known as tuxedos, or as black tie, and this form of dress has not lost any of its elegance over the years. A simple design that highlights a sharpened silhouette, the job of a formal suit is to be the most elegant clothing in a gentleman's wardrobe. If you were looking for a modern dinner suit or a traditional morning suit it is essential to reach out to a professional bespoke suit makers, who will be able to help you with any item of formal wear that you might require.
It is very true to say that not every dinner suit is the same. Imagine a tailored tuxedo in a beautiful midnight blue that has satin lapels and turns heads every time it is worn. This is what we mean by bespoke elegance and style.
Every suit that we make at Bespoke Suits is made with absolute precision and the passion we have nurtured over many years. Our tailors understand the different nuances of various materials and the style requirements of gentlemen. A suit made by us for a gentlemen's formal wear will be the most sophisticated item in his wardrobe. The traditional shape for a dinner jacket is a single-breasted front with a deep V that will enhance the silhouette of the wearer. Because this suit is often worn with the buttons undone, trousers will necessarily be high cut, often covered by a cummerbund or with a waistcoat underneath. A lot, however, is down to the individual’s taste and style of the wearer. A double-breasted jacket is now also accepted as an alternative to the single-breasted jacket usually completed with a traditional 6 buttons although sometimes with four.
Anyone who has been to a formal event will know that the rules etiquette can be a bit of a minefield. Then there is the choice of attire. Should it be a suit, evening tails or a dinner jacket?
