The suit with accompanying accessories is sometimes nicknamed a penguin suit given its resemblance to the bird's black body and white chest. Other slang terms include monkey suit and, since , soup and fish. In the s, the increasing popularity of outdoor activities among the middle and upper classes of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland led to a corresponding increase in the popularity of the casual lounge suit standard suit in American English as a country alternative to the more formal day wear that was traditionally worn in town.
Men also sought a similar alternative to the formal evening tailcoat then known as a "dress coat" worn every evening. Henry Poole never saw his design cross the Atlantic and be "baptized" as the tuxedo; he died in leaving behind a powerful and well respected business to be run by his cousin Samuel Cundey.
The jacket was tailored for use at Sandringham, the Prince's informal country estate and was described as a smoking jacket. Other accounts of the Prince's experimentation appear around variously referring to "a garment of many colours, such as was worn by our ancestors" and "short garments coming down to the waist and made on the model of the military men's jackets".
The garment as we know it suit jacket with tailcoat finishes was first described around the same time and often associated with Cowes , an seaside resort in southern England and centre of British yachting that was closely associated with the Prince. It was originally intended for warm weather use but soon spread to informal or stag winter occasions. As it was simply an evening tailcoat substitute, it was worn with all the same accoutrements as the tailcoat including the trousers.
The earliest references to a dress coat substitute in America are from the summer and fall of and, like the British references from this time, vary between waist-length mess-jacket style and the conventional suit jacket style. An essay in the Tuxedo Park archives  attributes the jacket's importation to America to resident James Brown Potter, a merchant banker who had worked in London for Brown Brothers. However this claim for Potter cannot be verified through independent sources.
This led the American establishment to reject it out of hand. It was only by that polite society accepted its role solely as a summer and informal evening substitute at which point it became very popular. The earliest tuxedo jackets were of the same black material as the dress coat with one, two or no buttons and a shawl collar faced in satin or ribbed silk.
By the turn of the twentieth century the peaked lapel was equally popular and the one-button model had become standard. When trousers were sold with the jacket they were of the same material. Edwardian dandies often opted for Oxford grey or a very dark blue for their evening wear. By World War I , the grey option had fallen out of favour but the " midnight blue " alternative became increasingly popular and rivalled black by the mid s. Notch lapels, imported from the ordinary business suit, were a brief vogue in the s.
At this time double-breasted jackets and white jackets became popular for wear in hot weather. Colour, texture and pattern became increasingly popular in warm-weather jackets in the s.
