If you're wondering whether to turn up in a men's dinner suit or a tuxedo to your next event, it's worth knowing that they're considered to be the same thing. In the UK, we used to call them dinner suits, while in Europe, they were known as tuxedos.
Black tie is one of the most formal dress codes a gentleman will be faced with, so it's essential to be prepared. Having a well fitted, high-quality tuxedo hanging in your wardrobe will help you avoid having to dash around rental shops when you receive that last-minute invitation and mean you can relax in the knowledge that your outfit is ready and waiting for you.
In addition to your quality suit or dinner jacket, you will need a slim-fit crisp white dress shirt, and there are important decisions to be made here too. You can opt for a plain front, pleated or stud buttoned depending on your tastes and will need to choose between a standard collar or a traditional wing collar if you want to stick to the rules.
Next, you will need to choose yourself the perfect bow tie, one of the most important finishing touches to any tuxedo. Typically, the bow tie is matched to the colour of your lapels, but we have a vast range of bow ties in a selection of colours, fabrics, and designs if you want to freshen up your look. If you're making an effort to dress in traditional men's black-tie attire, a self-tie bow tie will keep things simple, and we have a great selection of pre-tied bow ties to choose from.
What Type of Tuxedo to Wear
While traditionally most people think of a black tux when faced with a black-tie event, fashion, and dress codes alike have progressed in recent years, meaning more variations are available and accepted. If you want to break the mould and regular fit of black and white evening suits, you can now opt for a luxurious velvet tuxedo or even a vintage tweed jacket and slim fit suits for your next event without looking out of place.
Many aspects of a tuxedo are designed to adhere to formality by hiding all the fixtures, creating a smooth silhouette. This is where the final finishing touch, the cummerbund, comes into play. Disguising the mid-section where your shirt can often billow out from your trousers, the cummerbund is one of the most critical elements of the black-tie outfit. Available in an array of colours, you can choose to match your cummerbund to your tuxedo, bow tie or stud set for an eye-catching look.
