Men's Tuxedo. Saturday , April 07th , 2018 - 08:41:50 AM
Pants: The tuxedo is worn with midnight blue or black trousers with one black silk band down the outer seam. Pants are held up with braces or suspenders. Cuffs on formal trousers are unsuitable. Shirts: For Tuxedo a white shirt with French cuffs and cuff links will be perfect. Shirt that is plain or with traditional pleating will work out well. You may have a hand kerchief in the breast pocket of the jacket. Colors that are suitable are usually white or possibly red. Avoid colorful shirts and shirts with too much design. Cummerbunds should match the fabric on the man`s jacket and the pleats should face up.
o Fabric While looking out for buy a Tuxedo suiting fabric you need to look out for those materials that are guaranteed to spring back into their normal shape after you wring them. There are many suiting material that are tagged with the super 100 label which just means that the fabric yarn has just been twisted about 100 times rather than the normal 60-80. o Pant fitting and length of sleeves To check the pant fitting you need to be able to slip in two fingers behind the waist while you are trying on the pant. If you can slip in your fingers without any problem then you do not have to worry about the fitting again. If you are thinner do away with pleated pants however if you are on the chubby side you can do with the pleated pants. The length of the jacket sleeves needs to be long enough so as to cover the tip of your thumb when your hands are by your side. If this is not the case you will end like a wannabe who borrowed his brother`s suit.
Suit Fit: Ready-made men`s suits don`t usually fit you perfectly as you think. They normally require a stitch or two like lengthening or shortening the sleeves etc. Pants too require the right hemming. Narrow pants can take up a slightly higher hem. Also specify the length of shirt cuff you would like to show. A normal measure is ¼ of an inch. For shorter or trendier suits show less of your shirt cuffs. Fit changes over time like jeans.
