Evening Wear

Tuxedo & Evening Wear

The dinner jacket is the basis of the black-tie dress code. The model, style and facings chosen for the jacket set the tone for the formality. It also embodies the refined minimalism that sets evening wear above a simple suit through the clever concealment of each garment’s working parts.

Increasingly, black tie is becoming optional as dress codes relax and suits, such as those provided by Mardec, provide style, quality and simple elegance.
