Tuxedos are a common sight at black-tie weddings, galas, and fundraisers. Most event hosts will indicate whether the dress code is black- or white-tie, suggesting that a tuxedo would be appropriate. However, as a general rule, if the event begins after six, a dinner jacket may be expected.
The Elements of a Men’s Tuxedo
Every part of your outfit contributes to the overall look. When you opt for bespoke suits, you want to know that every detail is carefully put together.
- The Jacket: This is the centerpiece of the outfit. The cut and fabric of your jacket will very much define the rest of the tuxedo.
- The Pants: Always pair your jacket with your pants. Avoid belt loops and cuffs.
- The Shirt: A tuxedo shirt helps bring the tuxedo together.
- The Accessories: The accessories you pair with your tuxedo will help bring your look together.
Custom Comfort Men’s Tuxedo
The first step in creating bespoke suits is getting proper measurements. The greatest benefit of custom clothing is that it is made for you. Having your clothier measure you for your tuxedo is also an opportunity to discuss the specifics of your suit. So, it can be helpful to familiarize yourself with the process in advance.
Tips to Selecting Tuxedo Fabrics
Most tuxedos are made with black or other dark fabrics. Along with the custom cut, you want the fabric to feel just right when you put your bespoke suit on – and Pepi Bertini & his stylists can help you choose the right one.
