In a penguin suit

Today’s Mother Goose and Grimm:

A penguin selecting a wardrobe, from five identical choices. The giggle is that the black and white appearance of the penguin is actually a suit that it puts on. From Wikipedia:

Black tie, sometimes known by its French name cravate noir, is a semi-formal dress code for evening events and social functions derived from British and American costume conventions of the 19th century. Traditionally worn only for events after 7 p.m., black tie is less formal than white tie but more formal than informal or business dress. In the United States, the gentlemen’s form of black tie attire is often referred to as a tuxedo.

And in slang, as a penguin suit.
