A "tuxedo" strictly means a specific style of dinner jacket first worn at a very exclusive private country club in New York named The Tuxedo Club, though many people wrongly use the term to refer to formal outfits with other styles of dinner jackets.

Norm.

I know what a tux and a dinner jacket are, I was only pointing out that Celebrity removed the word dark from their suit description. I then quoted the relevent portion of their web site.

I agree that a sport jacket is not a suit.
