Tips for buying a Tuxedo suit
There are quite a few things you need to know before buying a man tuxedo suit. You have to keep in mind your physical build and not get misled by celebrity styles as any ill-fitting tuxedo suit can make you look clownish. Whatever you pick up to wear, whether its ready made or tailored, the tuxedo suit should be comfortable to wear. Make sure that it fits properly on the neck and shoulders. You must choose a tuxedo suit style that will go well with your personality and physical frame.
If you are slim and tall, then you will have a lot of options and little difficulty in making a choice. But if you are far too thin, then double breast jacket with big pads on shoulders will be the right choice as it will make you look somewhat stouter. Go for pleated shirt as it will help to enhance your physical personality.
If you are small-made, short stature and slim, then double breast must be ruled out. You should instead opt for a single breast button down jacket. Wear it with pleated pants for that added elegance.
For those with broad shoulders, the double breast style jacket should be scrupulously avoided, as it will further highlight the broadness of your shoulders. Short and stout men should prefer wearing single breast jacket as this will make the waistline less prominent. You should also consider padded shoulder jacket. You will really look dashing and debonair in one or two button tuxedo jacket.
If you understand what style tuxedo suit would be perfect for you before shopping, you will buy the right suit and become the center of attraction in any social gathering, job interview, business meet or other special occasions. Needless to say, you will make a lot of women’s heads turn. Although seemingly costly,the right way is to have the tuxedo suit tailored for you. There is no substitute for a tuxedo suit that is tailored to perfectly fit your personal size.
