“Alternative black-tie” is a slippery slope, as any style-minded guy who went to his senior prom (or watches the ESPYs) can attest. One way to strike a tastefully rebellious chord at a formal event: this slim worsted-wool tuxedo from Tommy Hilfiger Suiting, which pairs perfectly classic details like side vents and functional cuffs with an assertive—but not too assertive—silk tartan plaid lapel. Is this a look for everyone? Well, no. But if you’re looking to add a little hint of rakish flair to your black-tie look, we recommend you please opt for this over the bright-red pair of Chuck Taylors or the 8-ball-patterned cummerbund, every time.
