There’s no denying that the age of the tuxedo has reached its golden age once again, due to rising ‘dapper culture’ where men are wanting to look and feel good for themselves. Popular drama shows like ‘Madmen’ & ‘Suits’ are also giving resurgence for men to look crisp and ‘gentlemen like’ and ditching the 2000s era of ‘smart casual’.
