The use of the “white dinner jacket” has its origins in the Tropical countries, where it was worn as a less formal alternative to black tie in open air social events and cruises. This attire started to be worn in the formal summer events of North America from the decade of the 30s, popularized by the unforgettable Humphrey Bogart in “Casablanca”.
If you want to make a cool and stylish appearance in your next summer event, remember wearing your jacket always in an exquisite natural fabric, such as linen, wool or silk which will lend a dapper ivory or off-white color to the jacket. Pure and bright white is definitely not recommended.
Our proposal from Louise & Zaid is wearing this classic Hollywood style with a contemporary cool touch matching your jacket with our black camouflage bow tie or our pointed silk faille bow tie.
