The conservative, tried-and-true tuxedo no longer defines black tie. Menswear designers are mixing black-tie suits with an array of unconventional pieces, such as formal denim shirts, stingray-toed dress shoes, and animal-inspired cuff links. The sleek dinner jacket even appears with jeans, creating a distinctive, no-fuss style for day or evening. This season, the mix of elements is the message.
