It's a disco-style tuxedo JohnTravolta could barely look good in, but the HollywoodNerd usually comes dressed up like this to a fancy event. Usually an over-the-top exaggeration of the schizoid styles used in the RealLife 70s, falling out of fashion as disco music died down[[note]]This in the West. You can easily see ruffled shirts in Asian and Arab countries[[/note]]. Frilly shirts and big ties in particular made a comeback during most of TheNineties and TheOughts until the very early 2010s, although suits had more conventional schemes.

* In the remake of ''Film/FatherOfTheBride'', Creator/SteveMartin's character pulls one of these out of mothballs in the attic, to the amusement of his wife and daughter. Then, for the actual wedding, he dons a knockoff Armani tux which (as he discovers when it's pointed out by other characters) is actually navy blue.
