Articles >>Grooms: 7 Tips for a Perfect Tux Fit
We've undressed the facts on tuxedo fit to help you make it down the aisle in gentlemanly style.
The collar should lay flat on the back and sides of the neck without any gaps or bulges.
The bottom hem of the jacket should cover the butt and the vent shouldn't pull open. (That means it's too tight.)
Pants should break across the top of the laces.
The jacket should hug the shoulders perfectly. If shoulder pads extend too far over the shoulders, the jacket is too big.
The jacket sleeve should be hemmed at the wrist bone, allowing a half an inch of shirt to show past it.
Flat-front pants are generally more sliming than their pleated counterpart-less fabric means a flatter looking midsection.
A pair of colorful socks is an unexpected way to pull in some personality without making a spectacle.
