I made a decision this morning: If you’re not wearing an interesting tuxedo, GTFO out of this slideshow. I don’t care how cute you are! (I mean, I do. But not for the purposes of this particular moment.) If it’s a classic, boring tux, I have no room for you! (In the post. I probably have room for you in my life.) For the Met, you need to step it up. The good news? MANY MANY dudes stepped it up.
