At Menguin, we understand the value of looking good, but we’re not the only ones. Here’s 12 times other greats knew just what to say about our favorite look.
Liz Lemon (Tina Fey): Why are you wearing a tux?
Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin): It’s after six. What am I–a farmer?
In a tuxedo, I’m a star. In regular clothes, I’m a nobody.
Maybe they invited me because they know I have a tuxedo.
In the modern world, there’s no such thing as formality. A dinner jacket used to mean a tuxedo, you know?
Having rain on your tuxedo is a pretty good reminder that you’re not James Bond.
… a feeling at once destructive, romantic, and grand–like falling into a swimming pool dressed in a tuxedo.
–Douglas Coupland, Shampoo Planet
Wearing a tuxedo isn’t as simple as it sounds. I’ve been to a lot of award shows in Hollywood over the years and have seen some pretty sad tuxes. It’s surprisingly easy to go off the rails.
Success is a lot like a bright, white tuxedo. You feel terrific when you get it, but then you’re desperately afraid of getting it dirty, of spoiling it in any way.
This is truffle season / Tom Ford tuxedos for no reason.
–Jay Z (featured on Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie”)
Audiences just naturally hate me on screen. I could play a role in a tuxedo, and people would think I was rotten. You can do much more with a villain part.
–Lee Van Cleef
What is it about wearing a tuxedo or that little black dress, that makes us feel confident, beautiful, splendid, even invincible?
We put on formal wear and suddenly we become extraordinary.
On the days when you feel low and invisible, why not try this on for size: imagine you are wearing a fantastic tailored tuxedo or a stunning formal gown.
And then proceed with your day.
–Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration
Women take clothing much more seriously than men. I’ve never seen a man walk into a party and say “Oh, my God, I’m so embarrassed; get me out of here. There’s another man wearing a black tuxedo.”
If those can’t convince you to wear a tuxedo, then nothing can. You shouldn’t worry though, Menguin has over 21 different styles to choose from, including great tuxedos.
If anything doesn’t fit the first time, we’ll send free replacements right away.
