The tuxedo suit is the most formal attire you will ever have the pleasure of wearing. What else do you know about this inimitable suit? Take a look at 5 key components of the custom made tuxedo.
The single-breasted tuxedo is the most common style and will have one button giving an uncomplicated yet elegant look that can give the wearer the appearance of being taller
The Shawl Collar has a rounded edge and is the most popular choice of lapel in a tuxedo.
Lapel coverings are most commonly silk in the form of satin or grosgrain. This covering will have a bearing on your choice of bow-tie and cummerbund material.
Of the three styles of vents; centre, side, and none, only side and none are suitable for the formal look required of a tuxedo. The original tuxedo suit had no vents giving a much slimmer and more elegant silhouette. This is the perfect choice for ultra-formal occasions.
Pants are made from the same fabric as the jacket with the waistband often covered by a cummerbund, waistcoat or jacket. A belt is never worn as it adds bulk to the desired slim silhouette.
