WHY WE LOVE WHITE DINNER JACKETS

By Lance Avery Morgan

Jon Hamm

It’s that time. When you can officially wear a white dinner jacket, after Memorial Day, and not in the winter according to uninformed Hollywood stylists who dress their male clients in them in February, it will feel like a breath of fresh air.

Daniel Craig

In Casino Royale (2006), with Daniel Craig’s triumphant return to the Land of Bond, a piece of dialogue fully illustrates our point:

James Bond: I have a dinner jacket.
Vesper Lynd: There are dinner jackets and dinner jackets; this is the latter. And I need you looking like a man who belongs at that table.
Bond: How? … It’s tailored.
Lynd: I sized you up the moment we met.

So, this in mind, we look back give you our favorite white dinner jacket looks to inspire your summer – and summer wedding dressing options…
