To black tie or not to black tie

Recently I had a midnight blue dj made to measure. I was planning to wear it New Years Eve but then I thought why not to Christmas Eve and/ or Christmas dinner? Allways looking for a chance to wear it.

Both will be a family event where the other men will be in button down shirts at most. Since my family should know that by wearing a tuxedo I'm not trying to be show anyone up, and my daily attire includes at least a sportcoat(so I"m dresseir anyway), should I wear my dj?

If not I would probably wear a sportcoat and a tie.

I traditionally wear a cardigan, khaki slacks and a tie. Even for opening gifts with the family in the AM and as late as Christmas dinner. If it's dinner with the extended family, I generally add a blazer or sportscoat.

There are plenty of occasions to wear a DJ, but I doubt Christmas is one. I didn't even wear one to my university graduation (the robes would have covered it, and the party afterwards was casual dress.

If you must wear a DJ or smoking jacket, throw a Christmas party prior to the big day and make it clear that evening dress is appropriate.
