Rural moonshiners also apparently had an impeccable sense of proportion when it came to trousers.

Because I’m the worst.

Accept no false idols, people.

I’d say relative newcomer Beckett & Simonon. They’re decent quality, only $150 and they’re running a $25 credit offer right now I think. Not sure if there are any restrictions on that.

Of course. Black and navy, all the way.

What happens when the used chair you buy at significant discount from a shady Internet retailer turns out to be an intensely ugly ’80s orange and your girl forbids it from staying in the house? You tear it apart, get some fabric, and recover it.

Stick with a classic black tuxedo and you’ll look good in all formal situations. Get a peach flower for your lapel if you want to tie your looks together without going overboard.

Yeah, it’ll work. Gray would be ideal but navy should look fine.
