The tuxedo guide

The name Bond. James Bond personates the ultimate man for many till date. The credit obviously goes to the deadly combination of action, refined taste and the elegant tuxedo look adding the seductive charm to the character.

tuxedo guide

Tuxedo is in vogue from more than hundred years and evolved itself as an icon of male elegance. It is almost beyond belief that such a regulated and formal dress code has managed to withstand the informal dressing. Tuxedo popularly known as black tie and dinner jacket, requires the knowledge of the rules to pull off the look successfully. One should wear a self tied bow not a long neck tie or pre-tied bow with a tuxedo and else you may end up looking like a waiter rather than a gentleman.

The fabric of the bow should match with that of the lapels and stripes of the pants but you can also go for a velvet bow tie if you are going to an informal event. Tuxedo preferably should only have one button when in single breasted form. You can wear a double-breasted dinner suit but be cautious because if you undo a double-breasted jacket, it hangs and looks awful. Ideally, the jacket should have a closed back with no vents at all but if you’re going to have vents, choose side vents. A centre vent will blow open and show your shirt, which looks cluttered.

tuxedo guide

The shirt that accompanies a tuxedo should always be plain white necessarily not a pleated one. Although pleated shirts are more traditional, but a man looks best in a button up shirt with a classic spread collar shirt and French cuffs. The attire is complimented with a cummerbund or a waistcoat to conceal the bit of white shirting fabric between your jacket button and waistband. Wearing a waistcoat can look really nice and is a good alternative to the cummerbund giving you a much smarter look.

tuxedo guide

 

If you are getting confused about the pocket square then white linen is ideal, however, you can also go for silk scarf to add on sophistication. Trousers of the dinner suit should completely match the jacket, that means, the fabric should be the same. Pants should be high-waist and should not have any belt loops. Also front pleats should be avoided in the bottoms.

tuxedo guide

Club your tuxedo with black polished front cap toe shoes and avoid wearing loafers. You can also wear a formal pump – court shoe but for the attitude must be as that of bond.

Falling in love is one thing but it is a crime to match one’s tuxedo or associated accessories with the attire of his date.  Get her the moon or the stars of the galaxy but don’t fall in trap of your lady and murder the classiness of your tuxedo complimenting her dress.  The magic begins the moment you put on this upper-class attire, metamorphosing a boy into a man, and elevating a man into a gentleman. It has been rightly said, “Nature created men unequally, tuxedos were invented to even the score.”
