Ever wondered where the idea of a tuxedo began in the first place? Apparently it all started with a guy name Pierre Lorillard IV, French, of course. He helped create an area of land near New York City called Tuxedo Park on some land that had probably been stolen from the Algonquin Tribe. The chief’s name was a word that sounded a lot like Tuxedo to the white men, so that is what they named the land. Lorillard rubbed shoulders with the rich and famous of the 19th century, and soon the property became a hunting and fishing area for the wealthy, and then avenue for many expensive mansions. They even had their own extremely exclusive club and named it the Tuxedo Club.
At one of the fancy balls, Pierre decided he did not want to wear the usual long tailcoat with white tie of that era. Instead he had a tailor of the English royalty make a suit for him which consisted of a shorter jacket, like the ones worn for fox hunting, except in black. In the end, Pierre did not wear the suit to the ball, but his raucous son did wear a suit like the one designed for his father.
Because of the status of the Lorillard family, the style was immediately imitated. In a short time, men were appearing in their “ tuxedos ” at the fanciest area of the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City, assuring the acceptance of this new fashion statement. Now, the tuxedo, in many forms, is universally accepted as the fashion norm for formal occasions. It still has the power to make the wearer feel a little rich and famous himself.
