As far back as the 1860s the increasing popularity of outdoor pursuits among the British middle & upper classes led to a corresponding increase in the popularity of the lounge suit This became a country alternative to the more starchy formal daywear traditionally worn by menabouttown Men also sought an alternative to the stiffly formal tailcoat worn in the evening at society functions For some country squires the solution was to adopt the casual velvet smoking jacket by having it made from the same fabric as the evening tailcoat This made it more acceptable for more informal homedining A turningpoint in the respectability of wearing tailless jackets as a part of eveningdress came with the adoption of the style by the UK Prince of Wales (later to become King Edward VII) The Prince′s tailors Henry Poole & Co of Savile Row have an undated receipt for a blue silk smoking jacket ordered by the future monarch to wear to informal dinnerparties They have variously claimed dates of 1860 & 1865 for this receipt
The two different forms of the formal tuxedo vests are singlebreasted vest and the doublebreasted vest. The doublebreasted tuxedo shirts are suitable for wearing on any white tie events as well as morning weddings. They are more suitable for thin people as they look more built up after wearing them. In fact the doublebreasted vests completely changes the appearance of thin man into a well built person whereas the singlebreasted vests are suitable only for those men who are big and fat as they will make them look perfect.
