Midnight Blue in Mission Impossible

Posted on December 30, 2011

I took advantage of the Christmas holidays to see Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol which featured a very Bond-esque climax with Tom Cruise’s character decked out in a smart tuxedo at a swank soiree.  It was only as the scene progressed that I began to detect the slightest hint of blue in his evening suit.  The effect was so subtle I had to confirm my suspicions by checking online after I got home: the tuxedo was indeed midnight blue (custom tailored by Armani).

If you want to see a perfect example of this formal hue’s understated elegance I recommend you check out the movie.  (It’s actually a pretty good flick to boot.)
