What is a tuxedo?

This idea for a drawing has been on my mind since I heard Erin McKean talk about her Wordnik project and the notion that definitions require a lot more backstory than traditional dictionaries provide. You can't fully understand a tuxedo if you don't know about James Bond. (And that might expand the meaning of "dressed to kill.")

Try using Wordnik as your dictionary for a few weeks and see what happens.
