From the favorites in designer fashion comes an exciting mix of more than average tuxedos (think updated fabrics and luxe materials that will drive one to reconsider looking stately in a signature suit). From floral velvet to the same fabric in hunter green and sophisticated metallic stripes, it’s now high time for personality in the evening.
