Tuxedo: Funk and Formal Wear
Last week I talked to funk duo Tuxedo about their music and how it impacts their style. A group with that name obviously has to come through looking clean when it’s showtime. And they do just that.

- Jake running into Mobb Deep’s Prodigy—who’s never seen Jake dressed up—and his reaction.
- Whether they’ve even wanted to drop wearing tuxes when the show is outdoors and super hot.
- Those sexy-talk intro Mayer does on several Tuxedo II cuts.
