Do you know the history of tuxedos ?

The origins

In 1860, a man by the name of Henry Poole, a renowned London tailor, created the first “smoking jacket”. The garment was intended to be worn after dinner in private, when men retired to a separate room to smoke cigars and drink whisky.

The original tuxedo was a black velvet jacket with satin lapels, designed for comfort and elegance. It was often matched with satin pants, also in black. The tuxedo jacket was characterized in particular by its loose fit, long sleeves and deep pockets, offering freedom of movement.

Over time, the tuxedo evolved into a popular formal outfit for evening events, particularly in aristocratic circles and private clubs. Tuxedos gained in popularity in the early 20th century, thanks in particular to style icons such as the Duke of Windsor and the Earl of Caserta.
