The North Face Black Series Custom Tuxedo

Alex Honnold might not be a household name, but it should be — especially for those who appreciate great feats of athleticism and the triumph of the human spirit. In case you’re not familiar, he’s the gentleman who climbed the 3,000-foot El Capitan route in Yosemite National Park without any safety gear whatsoever, as chronicled in the Oscar-winning documentary, Free Solo. It’s fitting then that, when it came to getting ready for the Academy Awards, he was outfitted by none other than The North Face in a bespoke Black Series Custom Tuxedo.

This one-of-a-kind piece was made specifically to fit Mr. Honnold’s athletic frame, but also exemplifies the high-end premium features found in the brand’s Black Series lifestyle gear. That includes a construction of 100% wool, a slim-fit single-button coat, a stretchy poplin tuxedo shirt, and a matching Jacquard pocket square and bow tie — both emblazoned with a TNF logo. Perfectly balancing minimalism, comfort, and utility, we hope The North Face has the wherewithal to realize the benefits of extending such an offering to their wider audience.
