A story about a train station and a famous type of suit.

Tuxedo Park, NY, United States

Ever wonder where the suit that made James Bond look so good got its name from? Well wonder no more. It came from the community of Tuxedo Park. A private, gated, community for the well heeled, this area become an enclave of rich at the end of the gilded age. The iconic formalwear first became popular here and then took its name from this village. Taking a train to the village I would not have been at all surprised to see tuxedo clad men waiting for the next train in the historic station that has been in continuous service since the 1890s.
