Tuxedo 101

*Rings Bell* Class is in session for  Tuxedo 101* According to dictonary.com a tuxedo is defined as a jacket for semiformal evening dress, traditionally of black or dark-blue color and characteristically having satin or grosgrain facing on the lapels. That doesn't necessarily mean those are the colors that you will always see or classify as a tuxedo. Due to fashion trending positively upward and with the advancement of social media, the color spectrum has drastically increased. A tuxedo sets the standard when it comes to attending an upscale event such as a ball, black tie event, Oscars or a banquet. This slick looking attire allows a debonair individual to set themselves apart and demand the attention at any event. Although there's a wide variety of fits for a tuxedo the one I would recommend would be the slim fit and or the modern fit tuxedo. 

A slim fit tuxedo does an amazing job of hugging your shoulders and distinctively alludes the physique of the body. The flat front pants is the only concern for individuals with larger legs and buttocks region but if you are able to fit them a slight break in the pants should be all you need because the pants are already tapered. (This fit usually saves you a lot on alterations) Below are some descriptions of a slim fit tuxedo:

  • Slim Lapel peak or shawl 
  • Higher Armhole
  • Tapered Body
  • Shorter Length Coat
  • Tapered legs

A modern fit tuxedo has a similar fit to the slim fit, only difference is theres more room. 

  • Slim Lapel peak or shawl 
  • Higher Armhole compared to the classic fit
  • Tapered Body
  • Shorter Length Coat
  • Tapered legs

The tuxedo exudes a strong sense of fashion, sophistication, and confidence.  Pairing the tuxedo with of course my favorite the Bow Tie is something you would commonly see. Although the tie is appealing to the eye when wearing a tux the bow tie set's it off right! When buying a tux suspender buttons should already be inside the pants. (May vary based on designer) For now class has ended but stay tune for upcoming blogs on the tuxedo.  No matter your life style ... Live Sharp Stay Crisp Look Clean
