Though it’s growing incredibly rare to find occasions to wear tuxedos, it’s also growing incredibly common to pop bottle of champagnes when one wears a tuxedo. But though champagne and tuxedos get along swimmingly, champagne on tuxedo is not as nice a combo. That’s why Proof NY decided to make a techy tuxedo that can repel water and dirt and champagne.
Here’s Proof NY describing the tuxedo:
The Proof NY Tuxedo sports a jacket with a tailored silohuette and pants with a similar fit to our Spelman Pants (though a bit less tapered). The classic peak lapel was a clear first choice, though a shawl-version is in the works. Subtle contrast piping inside the blazer gives a peek of color to the otherwise traditional black motif.
For the main fabric, we decided to use the same high-performance Schoeller Dryskin blend as in our Spelman Pants. The core fabric has a NanoSphere treatment to make the tux highly water + dirt repellanct (water, coffee, and yes, champagne, slide right off the fabric). We also decided to line the tux jacket with a black Japanese satin lining with complimentary stretch, giving the inner garment a luxurious feel while retaining freedom of movement and spectacular comfort.
