The Perfect Wedding Tuxedo
Tuxedos have become the go-to garments for Black Tie events since the 19th century, when upper class men decided to wear tuxedos instead of casual lounge suits for special occasions. It’s for this precise reason that today some men opt to wear tuxedos at their weddings, as opposed to regular suits: in order to distinguish themselves.
Below you can find a small selection of wedding tuxedos from our collection. With thousands of fabrics and countless customisation options available, we can ease the pressure of finding the perfect wedding tuxedo by helping you to create your own.
The Benefits of Tailor-Made Wedding Tuxedos
Tuxedos differ from standard suits most noticeably through the addition of satin. The majority of tuxedos have satin covered lapels, buttons, and pocket trims, as well as a satin side stripe on the trousers. This creates a sophisticated and elegant look for any special event, particularly a wedding.
While the full, timeless look is created with the help of accessories like bowties, suspenders, and shined shoes, a stand-out wedding tuxedo will also have some personal touches. The most noticeable personalisation of your wedding tuxedo will come from the color of the fabric. A black or midnight blue tuxedo is traditional, but there’s no reason why you can’t stray from the norm – for example with a grey fabric – especially at your own party.
But the details don’t necessarily need to be ostentatious. You can make small adjustments that suit your taste. You can, for example, opt for a peak or a shawl lapel, choose a bold lining, decide between having vents or not, or change the slant of the front pockets. The long tradition attached to tuxedos won’t stop us from making it uniquely yours.
Bespoke vs. Off-the-Rack
Given that you will be wearing your tuxedo for such a truly special event, and that the tuxedo is in itself quite a statement, an excellent fit of both the jacket and trousers is absolutely crucial.
Buying a tuxedo off-the-rack doesn’t allow you much freedom to decide, for example, how fitted it is, and how the shoulders sit. You’ve put a lot of thought into planning this big day; let us take the extra time to make sure you feel comfortable and confident in your tuxedo.
