If you want to look great in your tuxedo, you need to have a great tuxedo! Pick something that works well for your body type and your style. Here are some suggestions:
The first step is to identify what type of body type you have. If you are on the heavier side but not very tall, plan on getting a single-breasted tuxedo, and make sure it isn’t fit too tight.
If you have a lean frame, but not much height, choosing a tuxedo set with a low-button stance is your best choice. Are you lean and tall? If so, you’re in luck: just about any tuxedo will look great on you.
Now that you know what type of tuxedo is best on your frame, what is your style? Are you trendy or conservative? What kind of wedding are you and your fiancé planning on having? I real modern, laid back wedding with the latest music and food styles, or a more traditional wedding.
If you want to go trendy, pick a coat with four, five or six buttons that doesn’t show much of the vest when buttoned. The vest can have a bright color or wild pattern. Choose baggier pants, with maybe a black and white capped toe show.
If you want to go traditional, pick a notch or peak lapel tuxedo coat with a subdued colored vest, or even a white cummerbund, and the traditional black bow tie and side stripe pants.
If you want something in between, go for it! The proper fit will be the key in looking great at your wedding.
