Tuxedo Fashion Tips from Vera Wang

Below is some good advise that I have received from Vera Wang.  I thought I would share it with you.

On your big day, you’ll undoubtedly want your groom looking as dapper as ever. Whether he’s a modern guy or keeps it classic, you can never go wrong with designer quality. At Men’s Wearhouse, you’ll not only find the new, exclusive BLACK by Vera Wang rental tuxedo collection, but you’ll find the perfect look for your man so he looks as elegant and feels as confident as you do.

Consider your groom’s tux style the perfect balance between your wedding’s theme and his fashion sense. To find that sweet spot, get wrapped up in the tux details—from vests and ties to fits and finishing touches—and decide together what’s best.

Here is a little advice to keep in your (or his) back pocket when picking out his wedding-day look:

The coat will set the tone for the entire ensemble. One- and two-button styles are the most popular and will look good on nearly all physiques. If you’re going for a classic look, choose a coat with a peak lapel. Going modern? Choose a notch lapel.

Fit Tip: The shoulder fit is crucial for a clean look. Fortunately, Men’s Wearhouse Formalwear Consultants will make sure his coat fits just right!

Flat-front pants are on-trend. Go with a satin stripe for a traditional look or a grosgrain stripe for a more contemporary take.

Fit Tip: Most men look best with a modest break atop the shoe.

Consider his shirt collar. A dress shirt with a point collar goes with practically any tux style, and a wing collar looks especially great with a bow tie.

Fit Tip: Be sure to get an accurate measure of his neck—not too tight and not too loose. And his shirt cuffs should peek out from his coat sleeves by ½ inch.

Tie on some personality. When it comes to deciding between a vest or cummerbund and a Euro tie or bow tie, let his personal style drive. Just don’t completely ignore the wedding’s colors and theme!

Style Tip: Coordinate the groom’s vest and tie color with the bride’s gown and the groomsmen’s vest and tie color with the bridesmaid dresses.

Finishing touches will polish his look. So, don’t forget the accessories. We’re talking shoes (classic, black patent), studs, cuff links, and a perfectly folded pocket silk.
