A Tuxedo’s Life

It’s called everything from a dinner jacket to a monkey suit, yet no matter how you slice it a man is always at his most handsome in a tuxedo. The ageless suit always ready and waiting for when the occasion calls for something a little bit finer. Here we present a look at a life of what the perfect tuxedo can do for a man.
