ITEM OF THE WEEK: GOTSTYLE BURGUNDY TUXEDO JACKET

Gotstyle’s private label burgundy tuxedo jacket is ultra accomplished in its level of Bond-esque cool. The contrasting shawl collar, lean profile, four button detail at cuff, front flap pockets and fine wool fabrication allude to luxury. The graphic hues are very noteworthy and sartorial forward.

How To Style It

Tuxedo jackets often come with baggage, meaning that there are a lot of pre-conceived notions on how, where and when you can wear it. Most of these predispositions revolve around formal occasions like galas and black-tie affairs and though this may be mostly true we’re here to spice things up. Here’s our take on how you could re-invent the classic tuxedo look with a few choice variations.

Key Features

  • Start with a mirco-print shirt vs a classic white tuxedo shirt. It’s an easy way to add character and depth while still maintaining a polished look. Not to mention, micro prints are one of the biggest trends this season.
  • Pair that with a self-tie bow tie because quite frankly no self-respecting man should buy a ready-made bow tie. Trust us, when you learn how to tie one you’ll never go back.
  • You can thank Kanye for this one, but seriously leather pants are all the rage this season and the perfect accent to this modern tuxedo. This pair by Zanerobe offers the perfect balance between streetstyle edge and sophisticated fun.
  • Complete your modern tuxedo look with a timeless classic- patent leather shoes because they are always appropriate.
