Information about Men's Tuxedos
The tuxedo has always been considered as formal wear. The tuxedo consist of a jacket plus trousers with accessories like a formal shirt, waistcoat, cummerbund and bow tie and formal shoes to go with it. There are a variety of styles in tuxedos.
Unlike conventional fashion which changes all the time, tuxedo styles seem to have stood the test of time. Is there really any way to improve on perfection?
Most tuxedos come with matching trousers. There are four styles in which it comes – single or double breasted with peaked lapels with a facing in grosgrain on the lapel. There is also the single or double-breasted shawl collar, which comes with either satin or grosgrain on the facing of the lapel.
The tuxedo shirt comes in a range of styles. The white-winged collar tuxedo shirt is more formal. It comes with stiff pique and single cuffs. The other style is considered less formal. However, it is also more comfortable with a turned down collar with a pleated front and double French cuffs.
Trousers for the tuxedo need to have a natural taper and follow the shape of the leg. The bottom of the trouser should always be plain – no cuffs – and should break on top of the shoe. Each trouser leg should have a satin braid – this however has become optional. These days pleated trousers have been gaining preference, however one must ensure that the folds of the pleats should open towards the center. The waist band must never be exposed.
Since it is mandatory that the waistband of the trousers should not be exposed, it is important to wear a vest pr a cummerbund. The neck tie is in a bow shape and its texture should always match the facings on the lapels i.e. either satin or grosgrain. The bow should be either in black or midnight blue and always be hand tied. It should not be larger than a medium butterfly or narrow like batwings.
In tuxedo shoes too there are two choices. One is the ‘pump’ which is a low-cut slip-on made of patent or matte-finish leather with a dull ribbed silk bow in front. The other is a ‘patent-leather oxford’ which is a plain-toe lace-up shoe made with thin soles and a small toe.
