There are various apocryphal stories as to the who-what-when-where-how the sartorial tuxedo was created. Popular wisdom narrows its inventive debut to two possible culprits, whose dress ensembles may have bumped lapels in Tuxedo Park, New York-the fashionable weekend enclave of wealthy swells, a diamond's toss north of New York City-resulting in the eponymously named tux: In the late 19th century, Pierre Lorillard IV is said to have seen an interesting, short black dinner jacket donned by one James Brown Potter at a gala soirée in Tuxedo Park. Potter himself had recently returned from London, where he was supposedly inspired by the Duke of Wales (later Edward VII) to visit his tailor on tony Saville Row to get himself one of the new-style shorter, informal dinner jackets. Lorillard is said to have seen Potter's jacket, and so posits the myth, he made a few alterations to it and thus was born the tux. No matter where the truth lies: Whoever dreamed up this male wardrobe staple assuredly did mankind (and womankind) a good turn: Put any man in a tux-all dolled up-and he looks like a million bucks. Herewith a few other accoutrements to help him look like two million.
