LOS ANGELES TIMES
Tuxedoes may be classic affairs of white and black, but that doesn't mean they have to be boring.
After Six has added a fresh twist to its spring formalwear collection with tuxes that look modern and cool. The Matrix collection has a textured woven satin lapel in a geometric pattern that's echoed on the buttons and trim. Available in ivory and white, the look is sophisticated and vaguely Edwardian.
And the company's Celebration line is a European look that has a stand-up black satin collar and notch lapel edged in satin and a three-button mid-length coat. Add the black and white slider tie, which looks like a conventional tie but is easier to put on.
After Six tuxedoes are available at many formalwear shops, go to www.tuxedos4u.com for a store near you.
