A tuxedo is the pinnacle of men`s formal wear but choosing your tuxedo wearing it with confidence and knowing when to wear it can sometimes prove to be a difficult dilemma for many men. Tuxedos are usually worn for formal events such as weddings a dinner party or evening reception for a ball or events such as attending a ballet or the opera. If the event has an invitation this will often give you an indication as to whether you should be wearing a tux. If your invitation to an event states black tie black tie optional or formal wear this is a clear indication that you should be wearing one. If you don`t already own a tuxedo you may be faced with the dilemma of whether to rent or buy one for the occasion firstly you should consider whether you will wear your tux again as buying will definitely be more expensive but if you are likely to wear it again it will prove more cost effective over time. Buying your own tux will provide you with a better fit than you would achieve from a hire shop and will also save you the inconvenience of hiring and taking it back every time you attend a formal event.
To complement your suit you should choose black well polished lace up shoes that are generally void of too much detail accessories should be kept to a minimum if you wear a watch this should be slim line with a black leather strap and cufflinks should be of a simple and subtle design. A little extra time and thought will ensure that when you wear your tuxedo you will feel confident as well as looking stylish and elegant.
• Dry cleaning - There is no custom made suit that you can throw into the washing machine and not damage it. Suits and dry cleaning come as a package deal. Right from woolens to linens suits need to go to the dry cleaner in order to be cleaned. The pants and the coat will both need to be dry cleaned together. You can try and clean the shirt at home but make sure that you do not attempt to wash the tie ever since this too will need the services of a dry cleaner. When sending in a suit for dry cleaning do ensure that the pockets are empty and accessories like cufflinks hankies etc have been removed.
When selecting your tie you should choose a black bow tie which for a formal event should be your only real option a self tie is the preferred option for that extra touch of elegance although there are some superior quality pre tied bow ties available to buy if you can`t manage to tie your own. For extra finesse always ensure the fabric of your tie is the same as the fabric of your suit lapels silk with silk and velvet with velvet the same rule applies to cummerbunds should you choose to wear one. When choosing a shirt a white dress shirt is best ensuring that it is well fitting which will avoid an excess of material around your waist area.
