In the old days, a groom would just go pick up a standard wedding
tuxedo and head off to the chapel. This has changed with a wider
number of style and color choices in wedding attire for men. Your
body type should play a role in your decision making process. Some
styles are better for a particular body type than others.
Men who are tall and thin have the easiest time choosing a wedding
tuxedo. Just about all wedding tuxedos will work well with a tall
and slim frame. Double breasted jackets look best on tall, thin
men. Single breasted jackets and mandarin collars also work well
for tall men. Your personal preference may be the deciding factor,
if this is your body type.
Short and thin men generally look better in a single breasted jacket.
A double breasted wedding tuxedo can make a short man look even
shorter. Thin men may find the jacket covers the shirt and tie,
so they aren't seen. A single breasted jacket with a peak lapel
can create a broader look across the chest.
Big and tall men look great in single breasted wedding tuxedo styles.
If you want something other than the traditional jacket style, consider
a shawl collar tuxedo. Avoid small bow ties, which can make the
neck look larger. A dark colored silk tie may be a better option
for men with wider necks.
Big men who are shorter in stature look great in a single breasted jacket with a vest. This creates the illusion of high and is a slimming look. Heavier men may want to stick to dark colors, such as a black wedding tuxedo.
