How to Find the Perfect Tuxedo

List: Posted: 12/10/10

Generally, formal clothing such as tuxedos are worn to weddings and other special occasions. If you are attending a special event, there are a few tips that you’ll need to keep in mind while shopping for a tux.


The first and most important tip to remember is that fit is critical. Picture James Bond’s perfectly-tailored tuxedos in the 007 movies. The better a tux fits, the better it looks.


Second, be sure to confirm if the event requires formal clothing in the strictest sense, or if deviations are allowed. For example, you may be able to wear a standard tie rather than a bow tie to some events. You need to know how stringent the rules are, or are not.


Next, consider quality. You want the tuxedo material to be high-quality wool, and you want your shirt to also be made of natural materials. Polyester is not a real fabric, and always looks cheap.


The fourth tip is to not get carried away with color. You want a black tux and a white shirt, period. Now is not the time to show your crazy side.


Finally, pay attention to your choice of shoes to complement your tuxedo. Oxford shoes are generally a safe pick. The color should always be black.


With these tips, you’ll be on your way to finding the perfect tux that will look great for years to come.
