how to wear a dinner jacket at every age feature image

A dinner jacket exemplifies class and refinement. A well fitting dinner jacket steps any man up from feeling like Seinfeld to Don Draper.

Watching Downton Abbey you can’t help but marvel at how men used to dress for dinner. Full tuxedo’s, tails and white dinner jackets, showed respect for the company they were keeping and the meal placed before them. Though we will never get back to that level of elegance, a dinner jacket should still be an important part of every man’s well-dressed wardrobe. Wearing a dinner jacket with a tuxedo shirt and black pants is a given, but for every age, it can add new life to your evening out. Dinner Jackets communicate elegance and panache, we styled four looks to inspire how you dress for your evening events:

In your 20’s

S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y night, it’s game night! You’ve got 3 hours to mingle, get a number or maybe even a date home. If you want to make it easier for yourself, throw on a dinner jacket with your jeans and shirt, then sit back.

In your 30’s

It seems like every week there is a new charity function to attend, but you relish working the room both for business and pleasure. The ladies always up their game at these events and you aim to match. Stand apart from the other guys all dressed in black with a bold color tuxedo jacket paired with a printed shirt and pants (because you can).

In your 40’S

This year you’re doing the big European trip, unlike your 20’s, no hostels, only high-end boutique hotels. You’ve worked hard and you’ve earned this luxury vacation. Don’t come off as a bad tourist, look like a local and pack a dinner jacket. Chic casual is instantly achieved. Wear a sneaker to stay modern and comfortable on your trip.

In your 50’s

In your 50’s good habits are hard to break, this o.g. knows he’ll never go wrong with classic style. He’s comfortable knowing he’ll be the best-dressed guy in the room. But adds some fun with his shoe game.

You feel like your suit game is on point. You’ve mastered the black, navy blue and charcoal grey suit. Your pocket square game. Fire. You have an event coming up that needs upgraded attire, Sir, it’s time for a tux.

If you’ve been to a black tie event before or going to be at one, it is worth it to invest in a tux. Whether it’s a jacket or a full suit. Why? It definitely never hurts to have one handy. Think of weddings you need to go, special events, galas or parties. Renting one will only cost you more in the long run vs. owning one. We also know the downsides of renting: the ill-fit, the limited selection… and the fact that other people wore it.

Tuxedos are classic. Colours and patterns may come into the mix but really the style never changes. It’s something you can have in your closet that will never go out of style. We’ve selected some of our favourite ones below and just like any suit you’ve gotten from us, we’ll make sure the fit is to a tee and is complemented by the right accessories.

STYLE TIPS
Staff-pics-Outfits-Formal

Every now and then there comes along an event that requires you to really step it up. The invite says “creative fashionable formal” but what does that really mean? Do you wear a full out tuxedo, do you jazz up a pair of jeans and blazer, what do you do? Well, for starters whenever you hear the word “formal” you should erase the word “denim”. Second reach out to our stylists to help guide you the rest of the way.

To better understand what “creative fashionable formal” really means, we got our stylists Nicole, Shae, Jenya and Sharad to put together looks that they’d recommend to their clients. These looks are as diverse as they come and hopefully give you some great ideas on how you can dress formal without losing your personality.
