Formal doesn’t mean ornate. Formal is done best as demure, quiet, subtle, understated. Let the details do the talking. This look, with small punctuation points with a satin-trimmed tuxedo and black suede boots, is ready for the theater or dinner at Le Bernardin. And, perhaps best of all, it’s comfortable — because formal should never mean restricting.
