When people think about weddings, a wedding dress is often one of the first things to cross their mind. A wedding tux is just as important and a well-fitted tux is more complicated than many people think! Here are our four tips to consider when choosing, selecting, or designing your wedding tux.
FIT, FIT, FIT! A well-fitting suit or tux is your base for a wedding ensemble that says, “I care about this important day, and I want to look my absolute best!” Small details such as jacket cuff length will make or break a suit.
TRADITIONAL ELEMENTS, MODERN CUT. A suit/tux is timeless so stick with traditional elements such as notched lapels, straight pockets, two jacket buttons, 100% wool, but kick it up a notch by going with a modern, slim silhouette.
CLASSIC COLORS and COHESIVENESS. The suits should align with the overall color palette, the season, the setting. Lighter colors for spring and summer, darker for fall and winter. Make the pocket square or tie an essential accessory that lets the wearer bring in some of the wedding colors.
MADE TO MEASURE. Custom-tailored suits are expensive, and off-the-rack just doesn’t cut it. Go for a company like Indochino - the middle option, called “made to measure” - the system lets you enter measurements either online or in a showroom, then they will adjust your fabric of choice to fit with your measurements. Not only can you choose from a wide array of fabrics, but also choose items like the lining, pocket flaps, real buttonholes, and monogramming!
