I was on a transatlantic for QM 2 - and those crossings have a "Black & White ball" (obviously referring to tuxes) and an "Ascot Ball" - where it is the tradition for the lady to make formal hats from supplies given to them.

There were literally several hundred people at each ball and the vast majority of men were in Tuxes. They could not have all come from the Queens or Princess suites.
