Tuxedo or ‘Tux’ as we call it, is undoubtedly the king when it comes to Formal dressing for men. I bet, nothing can beat the look of a man dressed in a Tuxedo. A special occasion such as your wedding day, does call for you to present yourself in a tuxedo. A distinctive event or a gala evening are also the ideal occasions for you to make an appearance in this most formal attire.
What’s your style?
Yes, a satin lapel is a must in a tuxedo. After all, that’s what sets it apart from a formal suit. How then do we tell apart one tux from the other? This is achieved with a little deviation in Style. One can have variation of peaked or notched lapels. To create your own style, you may highlight the bosom-pockets with satin trimmings or have satin along the length of the trouser. Would you have side vents and if yes, would you choose satin trimmings on them as well? Choose from one-button single breasted front or a two button front style.
Slim-fit tuxedo looks great on a well maintained physique. ‘Have it- will show it’ is the motto especially when someone has devoted time and energy to keep one’s body in great shape. It fits exquisitely and accentuates all the areas that need attention.
Accessorising your Tux
What is a tuxedo without the frills and fancies? Your look is incomplete if you haven’t thought well about the accessories that will go with your tuxedo. After all, you need to create your unique style that will be talked long after the vent is over. Are you wearing a sophisticated black tie for a true black look or a timeless bow for that highly formal appearance? O you plan to complete the look with a waistcoat or a cummerbund? Although waistcoats or vests with four, five or six buttons look ultimately formal, it is the cummerbund that steals the show. Choose one of the two as per your body type and weather. It is best to wear a cummerbund if you have a slim waist as it also tends to make you look taller. It definitely is also the cooler alternative of the two.
What’s in a colour?
Now traditionally, black is what we think of when we talk about tuxedos. But as modern man has broken all traditions, the age-old custom of black tuxedo also saw a revolution. In the last few years, we witnessed influential Hollywood starts and sports stars flaunting burgundy, blue and even grey tuxedos. The darker shades are paired with black trousers generally but if you dare, go with a monotone. Now that’s what can give you a distinguished look when you are attending a formal event where all men are dressed alike.
Wear your Attitude on your Sleeve
At the end of the day, it’s your own attitude that makes the real difference. Two men may be dressed exactly alike and yet one may appear suave. It then becomes a challenge to point out the difference. It is actually, how one carries oneself that sets him apart from the other. Your class reflects in your body language and in your impeccable details.
