Originating as far back as the 1800s in the United States, the tuxedo was named after an American socialite. The term is now used for a formal evening suit distinguished primarily by satin or grosgrain facings. Though typically black or midnight blue, there are no limits today on what colour or pattern tuxedo can be worn.
