National Tuxedo Day
National Tuxedo Day is dedicated to the tuxedo, a semi-formal evening suit most often worn at black tie events. The suit is usually black or midnight blue, and is usually worn with a formal shirt and black bow tie. It is similar to the dinner jacket of the United Kingdom, which appeared there in the late 1880's, as a less formal attire than the tailcoat. A few years later the tuxedo made its appearance in the United States. The name is derived from Tuxedo Park, a Hudson Valley enclave where the tailless dress coat was worn by the social elite. Throughout the 20th century, various styles of tuxedos went in and out of style, with different colors and styles of lapels.
National Tuxedo Day is observed next on Thursday, October 10th, 2019. It has always been observed annually on October 10th.
