About morning coats and dinner jackets The morning coat is governed by certain rather strict codes. But exceptionally at Crossword, strict does not mean austere. How can you play around with tradition by brightening up your formal suit with a dash of humour? By wearing one of the many colourful waistcoats on offer which tell a story, your story. Nostalgics will love to adorn their morning coat with an ascot tie, in the style of a 19th century cravat. At Crossword, the dinner jacket is nonconformist: in smooth black, navy or chocolate velvet, it can also be worn over a pair of Scottish tartan trousers! Quintessentially British!
