To answer yesterday's question, the dinner jacket on the gentleman on the left is Purple Label ready to wear while the two to the right were made by Leonard Logsdail. As a number of readers pointed out, the clues are the flaps on the ready to wear jacket's side pockets and its missing lapel buttonhole (if he had tucked his flaps into the pockets he might have gotten away clean).
There was a bit of a trick to the question as quite a few respondents were distracted by the lack of visible shirt cuff and the wing collared shirt on the shawl collared jacket wearing man in the center (Debrett's considers the wing collar to be appropriate only with white tie however I wonder why they would take such a position as when the dinner jacket was first worn it was accompanied by wing collars exclusively - the turndown had not yet been introduced by the then-Prince of Wales). The bow, which several thought pre-tied, is a Charvet and the wearer swears it was tied by hand. These guys take their clothing seriously and I take them at their word.
A pair of Bresciani dress socks will be winging their way to reader Seitelman who was first to respond as well as the first to answer correctly. And, by the way, Carl, you have now seen a midnight blue RTW dinner jacket.
