Their tuxedos, in navy or black, feature trim silhouettes that subtly refer to the 1960s. Novel elements, such as removable scarf insets, add a touch of individuality. As this navy wool-and-silk tuxedo ($2,880) and shirt ($650) prove, polished formal wear does not have to be stuffy. (212.772.6969, www​.valentino.com)
