Midnight Navy is the new Black

by Roberto Revilla

As the art of dressing makes a comeback in menswear, the dinner suit is back in the limelight. So for any special formal occasion consider wearing the dinner suit as not so much a begrudging sartorial obligation, but rather, a rare opportunity to shine as the distinctive, dashing, debonair man that you are.

Today’s dinner suit is modern, minimal, molds perfectly to your body with the fabulous Roberto Revilla London bespoke construction, with meticulous attention to detail that provides lots of options to leave your personal mark — qualities that you can never dream to have in an abominable rental. So invest in your own dinner suit and never be mistaken for a groomsman again. A man of genuine style owns himself — and his dinner suit.

A classic dinner jacket has a single button, but the 2-button is a becoming a popular option. The peak lapel or shawl collar is the classic standard, but the notch collar has come to be commonly accepted. Although black is the most widely worn color, midnight blue is also a classic dinner suit colour that offers a dose of sophistication yet “something different.” Remember: no more than 2 buttons, ever, and most importantly, we’ll make sure you’re wearing a jacket, not a box.

For shirts, although the stand-up wing collar is the traditional dinner shirt style, the most current collar style is the turndown collar, which is basically the collar style you see on your normal dress shirt.

So don’t delay, book your dinner suit fitting today!
