Picking a velvet tuxedo
If you want to wear something a little different at your next black-tie event, a lustrous velvet tuxedo is one way to do it. There’s nothing that feels more upmarket and luxury than velvet, and there’s a reason for that. Historically, due to its high production costs, velvet has carried connotations of nobility, making it the perfect fabric for the most formal of occasions.
There’s more than one way to style a velvet tuxedo too, with an array of colours such as red, blue, black and green. Deeper hues in these colours are the best way to create a look that’s classy and timeless. Ultimately, the colour you choose will act as an accent four your entire outfit, so it’s important to feel confident with your choice. This choice of colours does give you the option to play around with your outfit. Once you’ve chosen your colour, think about fit. At Dobells we have a variety of men’s fits including slim, skinny and regular, so our collection is guaranteed to have a tuxedo that has the wow factor for you. By knowing your body shape and size, you can find the right one for you.
How to wear velvet tuxedo?
The classic rules of wearing a tux still apply with a velvet dinner jacket. The main thing is that you need to wear a white or ivory dress shirt, and smart shoes. If you want to take it one step further, we also have a range of velvet accessories and bow ties to match. Generally, black bowties are the most formal choice.
Your jacket is the item that’s making the statement in your outfit, so you don’t need to go overboard with your other accessories. The most important thing to remember when wearing a velvet tux is to keep it slimline along your body. That means finding the right size using our size guide, but you can also use accessories like cummerbunds to keep your silhouette trim around the waist. Add some patent leather dress shoes and black trousers in the right fit for your body shape, and a crisp white dress shirt to complete the look to perfection.
