The first record of a dinner jacket is an 1865 record in the ledger of Henry Poole & Co , of an order placed by the Prince of Wales and future King Edward VII for a short midnight blue jacket. In the following decades of the Victorian era , the dinner jacket ( tuxedo in American English) came into fashion as a less formal alternative for the tailcoat which men of the upper classes wore every evening. Thus it was worn with the standard accompaniments for the evening tailcoat at the time: matching trousers, white or black waistcoat, white bow tie, white detachable wing-collar formal shirt and black formal shoes. Lapels were often faced or edged in silk or satin in varying widths. Dinner jackets were considered from the first less formal than full dress (cutaway tailcoat) and etiquette guides declared it inappropriate for wear in mixed company. [5]
