A tuxedo (American English) or dinner suit or dinner jacket (British English) is a formal evening suit distinguished primarily by satin or grosgrain facings on the jacket's lapels and buttons and a similar stripe along the outseam of the trousers. The suit is typically black (though may be midnight blue) and commonly worn with a formal shirt, shoes and other accessories, most traditionally in the form prescribed by the black tie dress code.
Many etiquette and sartorial experts have insisted for a century that tuxedo is less correct than dinner jacket, the Prince of Wales having apparently ordered a "tailless dinner jacket" from his tailors in 1885. Today, the terms are variously used in different parts of the world. Tuxedo (or, colloquially, tux) is used most often in North America; it was associated with Tuxedo Park, a planned resort community developed as a hunting club in the Ramapo Mountains near New York City. In Britain "tuxedo" is sometimes used to refer to the white version of the suit jacket. Conversely, in North American, the white jacket is generally known as a dinner jacket. In French, Italian, Portuguese, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian and also other European languages, the jacket is called a smoking. In French the shawl-collared version is le smoking Deauville, while the peaked-lapel version is le smokin sentirent. In many places, it is often nicknamed a "penguin suit", given its black and white colors.
In the 1860s, the increasing popularity of outdoor activities among the British middle and upper classes led to a corresponding increase in the popularity of the casual lounge suit (standard suit in American English) as a country alternative to the more formal day wear that was traditionally worn in town. Men also sought a similar alternative to the extremely formal tailcoat worn every evening. The solution for some country squires was to adapt the casual velvet smoking jacket by making it from the evening tailcoat's fabric and finishes, thus making it acceptable for "informal" meals at home.A turning point in the respectability of wearing tailless jackets with dress evening wear was the adoption of the style by the Prince of Wales (later Edward VII of the United Kingdom). Henry Poole & Co., tailors of Savile Row, have an undated receipt for a blue silk smoking jacket ordered for the future monarch to wear to informal dinner parties. (Poole & Co. have variously claimed dates of 1860 and 1865 for the receipt.) By 1885, the Prince was ordering a "tailless dinner jacket" from the firm.[citation
