The Wedding Tux of a Woman's Dreams

Doesn't it make you want to get married, or renew your vows, just so you can be the one to stand next to the man wearing this wedding tux? You can see the tails of the tux trailing behind him like an artist's carefully drawn line of ink, but look closely and you can also see the rippling tails of the shirt mixed in there. The tailoring is spectacular. It looks bespoke and fits him to a T, nipped and tucked in all the right places. In the humdrum world of men's tuxedos, you look at this and see what a tuxedo could be. What a tuxedo was meant to be. Think what a bride would have to wear to hold her own against this! But if she did, think how jaw droppingly wonderful they would look together. (What if she had a near-matching outfit, but in opposite colors and much wider legged pants?)

This photograph is, amazingly, taken from a 2002 album for singer Miguel Bosé entitled Por Vos Muero (which Google translates as I Die for You). The singer has a really interesting history, with names like Hemingway, Picasso and Luchino Visconti liberally scattered about. Don't take our word for it, though. Read about Mr. Bosé (a man of a certain age) here.

You never know what you'll find on the internet, completely by happy accident, that will absolutely make your day.


  1. I think I got a bit of drool on my keyboard....

  2. Nope, sorry...he looks like a Disney sea creature to me. :(

  3. Today I wore an upcycled fishtail coat and wide legged pants-both black. It must be in the air, this tux-ish swoop of coat and pants. I'd wear a couture version of this in a heartbeat. I can see both of you in a custom version as well. Sounds like a new uniform, whaddya say?
