    Considering getting a double breasted shawl lapel dinner jacket. The big questions are Boutonnière or not? And Contrasting satin lapel or not? Any response would be appreciated!

    Military mess dress is black tie or white tie.

    So I suite off the rack would be frowned upon

    I NEED ADVICE! Would a dark red and black hop sack be an inappropriate fabric for a dinner jacket?

    Where is your shirt from? It looks really great with the vertical woven stripe. I've looking for vintage shirts but haven't found anything similar

    Mess jackets are worn by Canadian army officers for officer dinners.

    There is no way you wear a dinner jacket indoors after 6 pm! It is NOT an alternative for a tuxedo! The only places to wear a dinner jacket is a cruise ship, a yacht or a garden party!!

    mess jackets are military uniforms— NOT costumes

    Thank you for your most helpful video. Would it be correct to wear a cummerbund with a double breasted dinner suit?

    I Loved the video! Did you wear the green slippers to your burgundy dinner jacket or were they for an other outfit?

    Hi. I am wearing a velvet dinner jacket to a formal cruise night, and want to be correct with the trousers.
    I have bought a pair of black formal trousers with a satin strip, but I'm unsure of them as there, not the same color shade of black. Is this acceptable?
    Or should I go for a contarsting colour maybe grey?
    Kind regards James

    I'm thankful I being to a generation where we can simply wear a T-shirt or button down with jeans at a dinner… What's up with this much formality…

    As always a very excellent review. I beg to differ only slightly regarding the dinner jacket or tuxedo with peaked lapel. I have a fine Italian Pal Zileri peak-lapelled double brested black tux which was surely not cheap and I think its fine albeit a bit more formal than the single breasted shawl style. I do agree the latter is smoother and more chique and often my first choice, depending on the occasion. I have also worn my Favourbrook black & gold velvet smoking jacket though at less formal dinners and at Christmas with my family though sometimes also at my London Club on occasion, when a little more eccentricity is allowed.

    I still do not understand the diffrence between smoking and tuxedo. What I have heard of is that smoking is just a synonym to tuxedo.

    If you’re going with a tartan dinner jacket, I would avoid black watch unless you served in that regiment because veterans can get a little touchy about it. There are literally thousands of tartans to choose from, so I would look into that to see what you actually like the most. Of course, you can wear whatever you want and the black watch thing applies mostly to kilts.

    I don't understand, the British 'dinner jacket' is the term for what the Americans would call a tuxedo. So what exactly is this dress code?

    Mess jackets are military dress wear (usually in the UK and Canada) the colours denote rank and regiment and are still seen today, so no they're not just a silly circus​ outfit, and are most definitely acceptable in Black tie.

    Boutonniere is an elegant accessory to differentiate, however pocket square is not suitable for any tuxedo jacket.

    And i thought " a suit is a suit" .. i NEVER EVER COULD HAVE IMAGINED SOO MUCH VARIATION ..

    HOW CAN SOMEONE DISTINGUISH SO MUCH ? .. you need to have a greater eye for that ..

    And years of experience and knowledge..

    DAMN i feel like a complete ignorant ..

    I saw a model in a clothing catalogue wearing a velvet dinner jacket with a standard dress shirt and necktie. All available for purchase through the catalogue. Isn't that a style faux pas?

    Great topic! I do not yet own a tuxedo, but I am thinking about buying one. Do you think it makes the most sense to start with a black tuxedo, and then later add a dinner jacket in a color that works well with black (not dark blue)?

    Disappointed with the Mess jacket comment. It is still considered formal in the Military and arguably has more history and heritage to its civilian equivalent.

    The traditional dress codes are certainly very interesting and classic, but can be so overwhelming and complicated for people these days.
