    I'll play, too. I only own one tuxedo, but since I haven't gained weight over the past 25+ years, one is all I've needed. It's a shawl collar, single-breasted, satin-accented traditional model. I update it with a new tie/cummerbund every now and then (although I confess I like the half-vested look). Facial hair may come and go, but the tux stays in fashion no matter what.

    Pictures ranged from 2010 to earlier this month.

    I'd leave as is. Better to have a couple of honest vents than to try to hide them - which will be glaring. A velvet jacket is the sort of informal take on the whole ting that doesn't require to conform to the usual "rules", imo.

    Yeah, those are great, though to my mind they do look a bit 'wrong' if you're not the host. (Personally, I would stretch host to include the organiser of a private black tie function, even if in a hotel or such. )

    Typically I'd agree, though a notch is still technically correct, and when taking the liberty of going velvet anyhow.....

    Thanks Edward and all for your advices: I asked my tailor if it was possible to transform the notched to peak lapels, but he said he would be too costly and complex, so I will just keep it that way and reserve it for home parties, or "creative black tie" or so !
