Black Tie Outfitters: The J.Crew Ludlow Shop.

The Event: Wedding at the famed Four Seasons Restaurant in Manhattan.

Dress: Black Tie

The wedding was planned for a Saturday. On a Wednesday I realized that the attire was black tie and I do not own a tuxedo, at least one that I would be caught dead in. I needed to solve this problem, and do it quickly. This I don’t believe, is an isolated incident for men in the prime of wedding season.

Okay, tuxedo options, this is not going to be pretty. I could always rent a tux, right? I’m gonna look good –- that guy with the beard guarantees it, right? No way, I can’t go the Men’s Warehouse route. Too much disgusting fabric. Too painful. Anyway, the timing did not allow for renting a tux. Not even close. Damn-you planning ahead. Then I realized that the best option for me just a few blocks away at the J.Crew Ludlow Shop in TriBeCa. Boom. Game changer. Even Mr. Impossible Cool agrees.
