Over the years, styles changed and now it is more widely accepted to wear a black tuxedo during the day to events. Today the black tuxedo is worn to almost every formal occassion such as weddings, proms, galas, balls and formal events. Black tuxedos have a rich history of style, tradition and class in the Americas and are though by some to have started in Tuxedo Park in New York in the late 1880's. Tuxedo Park was a place where New York's social elite gathered. The black tuxedo with white undershirt is nicknamed a penguin suite because it resembled the birds black body and white chest. Black tuxedos were the standard until other tuxedo colors became popular.
