Liz Lemon (Tina Fey, on 30 Rock): Why are you wearing a tux?
Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin): It's after six. What am I – a farmer?
In a tuxedo, I'm a star. In regular clothes, I'm a nobody.
- Dean Martin
Maybe they invited me because they know I have a tuxedo.
- Kurt Vonnegut
In the modern world, there's no such thing as formality. A dinner jacket used to mean a tuxedo, you know?
- Noah Emmerich
Having rain on your tuxedo is a pretty good reminder that you're not James Bond.
- Joel Edgerton
... a feeling at once destructive, romantic, and grand – like falling into a swimming pool dressed in a tuxedo.
- Douglas Coupland
Wearing a tuxedo isn't as simple as it sounds. I've been to a lot of award shows in Hollywood over the years and have seen some pretty sad tuxes. It's surprisingly easy to go off the rails.
- Paul Feig
Success is a lot like a bright, white tuxedo. You feel terrific when you get it, but then you're desperately afraid of getting it dirty, of spoiling it in any way.
- Conan O'Brien
This is truffle season / Tom Ford tuxedos for no reason.
- Jay Z (featured on Justin Timberlake's "Suit and Tie")
Audiences just naturally hate me on screen. I could play a role in a tuxedo, and people would think I was rotten. You can do much more with a villain part.
- Lee Van Cleef (the "Bad" in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly)
What is it about wearing a tuxedo or that little black dress, that makes us feel confident, beautiful, splendid, even invincible? We put on formal wear and suddenly we become extraordinary. On the days when you feel low and invisible, why not try this on for size: imagine you are wearing a fantastic tailored tuxedo or a stunning formal gown. And then proceed with your day.
- Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration
Women take clothing much more seriously than men. I've never seen a man walk into a party and say "Oh, my God, I'm so embarrassed; get me out of here. There's another man wearing a black tuxedo."
