A tuxedo is a type of suit jacket with satin lapels, usually worn for black tie dress codes. This is usually a tailored or regular fit.
A tuxedo should be worn confidently, with a contrasting shirt and matching tie combination. Usually a white shirt with a black bow tie is a traditional ensemble.
Black shoes are a must for a tuxedo – dress or patent leather shoes are essential, though formal shoes with a flash of white is a great way to replicate a pair of traditional spats, resulting in a classic heritage theme.
A white shirt with a wing collar is the traditional accompaniment, but a pleated shirt is also a superb addition to your tuxedo jacket.
A tuxedo dress code is perfect for weddings, Christmas parties or special events, or any occasion with a vintage feel. Great Gatsby or Hollywood themes are particularly popular.
