The tuxedo is the pinnacle of American formal attire – a symbol of celebration and class. It’s a timeless piece consisting of jacket, pants, dress shirt and bow tie, which every man can look good in with the right style and fit.
The origins of the tuxedo are hotly disputed. Some believe this elegant design was the brainchild of Griswold Lorillard, son of the owner of an exclusive sporting club north of New York City called Tuxedo Park (a simplified version of the Native American name ‘P'tauk-seet-tough’). Griswold was said to have worn a ‘tailless’ black jacket to a ball, flouting the then-dress code of traditional tail-coat and setting a trend for all the other bright young socialites of New York.
Others attribute the tuxedo to the co-founder of the park’s club – James Brown Potter, who was said to have seen the style on the Prince of Wales during a trip to England before bringing it back to the US.
What was then a rising trend is now a formal dress code, worn to every black tie event in the world.
The tuxedo creates an iconic and instantly recognizable look, with the black jacket contrasting against the crisp white dress shirt (a look which lent the tuxedo its nickname, the penguin suit). If you already have the right pants, shirt and bow tie, you can buy a dinner jacket separately. Otherwise, you can buy a tuxedo suit on this page, including the jacket and pants, or go all out with a tuxedo package to get your jacket, shirt and bow tie in one easy, affordable package.
Style-wise, we offer a choice between shawl lapels (for a dressier evening look) and peak lapels (sharp and structured). We also stock a range of colors and patterns, including black, white, navy, dogtooth and velvet in black, red and blue.
At Dobell you can opt for one of our own-brand affordable Alexander Dobell tuxedos, all of which are designed in-house and inspired by the latest trends. Or, you can select one of our designer brands including Baumler, Wilvorst and Noose & Monkey.
