Once again hello and thank you for stopping by my blog. If you have followed me so far, then you have all the basic suits for your everyday wardrobe. A not so everyday suit that every dapper man should have at least one of is the tuxedo. For me the tuxedo is the epitome of luxury.
When you choose your tuxedo it should be either black or midnight blue, but under no circumstances should it be white. You are getting your suit as a man and for a formal evening event, not a high school prom. Typically, the lapel on your jacket should be a peak lapel, which has a point facing up at the top of your lapel. The shirt that you wear with the tuxedo should be white with a turn down collar. The tie of choice should of course be a bow tie, my choice is a true bow tie, and not a clip on. Again, we are men and we must take the time to learn how to tie a real bow tie. The effort to learn now to tie a bow tie is absolutely worth it and believe me it really is not that hard. The trousers should have a straight hem at the bottom and a flat front. The shoes should be black and if your able to find, patent leather. Finally, accessories should be light. I suggest a cummerbund, cufflinks, a pocket square, and a lapel flower.
I really had fun on this shoot, it was a location that I found in a really cool location and I was able to work with a new photographer. He is super talented so you will definitely see me working with him again. As always I try to give you the look and hopefully you can take from it and build on your own wardrobe. Hope you enjoy the post and if you have any questions let me know.
