The Tuxedo is not a common item, but one I feel every gentleman should have in their wardrobe. The midnight blue tuxedo provides a level of elegance that the black tuxedo can not. I also like the peak lapel option vice they shawl collar for its boldness. I feel the peak lapel is the most formal and eye catching.
I recently wore my blue tuxedo for the Black Men Rock Image Awards. I was awarded the best new male model of the year so I wanted to go very formal. I decided to go really formal. I was joined by my photographer François Joseph and he helped capture the evenings experience.
The Tuxedo is by Cardi, the shirt is by Jos A. Bank, and the shoes are by Kenneth Cole.
