The Invitation Says Formal:
How Do You Choose A Tuxedo?
Nowadays, the marketplace in
formal men's wear features both contemporary
trends and older, traditional styles. So there
is a wide variety of suit styles available for
purchase. However, formal dressing has certain
universal, time-tested requirements that never
really change. Different styles are appropriate
for different occasions, and men of all ages
need to be able to distinguish between
When looking for a tuxedo,
you must first decide whether it is optimal to
own or rent it. Rentals are usually easily
available, however owning your own tuxedo and
having it always on hand may pose a significant
Determining how frequent you
will wear one, needs to be decided first. A
tuxedo that is of superior material will last a
long time, but it can also be very pricey. If
you frequent formal occasions, it is cost
effective to own your own as opposed to renting
If you go to a nighttime
event, choosing a midnight blue or black is
always the best option, however, a gray suit is
okay for daytime functions. Making sure your
tuxedo is an appropriate fit is very important.
It is best to ensure there are no visible holes
on the garment as well.
Also, be sure that no holes
are visible in the tux, whether renting or
purchasing to own, and especially if you are
purchasing a previously owned garment, such as
from a vintage clothing store. Even then, you
should examine your tux for visible stains,
rips, or holes (such as moth holes) prior to
any event. Leave yourself enough time to deal
with any possible dry cleaning or repair
Thus, in order to ensure
maximum years of use, you must care properly
for your garment. This includes leaving your
tuxedo hung on a sturdy hanger when not in use.
Do not allow your tux to become crumpled or
folded up for any length of time. A suit bag is
best for plane travel. Next, a pre-knotted bow
tie is just as suitable as a traditional,
unassembled bow tie, which you must know or
learn how to tie yourself. A black bow tie
always looks great, but if you are comfortable
wearing a tie with a splash of color (one that
matches your cummerbund or vest), that is fine.
Or if the event is less formal, or you
otherwise feel it is acceptable not to wear a
bow tie, you can opt for that. If you are
unsure, it is probably best to check with an
event organizer or a co-worker to see if the
event is "black tie only" or if you need to
wear a bow tie at all.
If you are over six feet
tall, you will look better in a single breasted
jacket. A double breasted jacket will look good
on most body types. The traditional double
breasted peak, the double breasted shawl, and
the double breasted notch are the three most
common styles to look for.
Finally, a vest and a
cummerbund should not be worn at the same time.
The pleats of the cummerbund are manufactured
to face upward and should be worn that way.
When attending a very formal event, a slightly
understated color and pattern is suggested.
