You’re getting married. Congratulations.
Let’s do a quick breakdown on quite possibly the best wedding tuxedo you’ll ever come across.
Starting with the most important thing, the fit.
You’ve probably worn suits before. So I believe you have a solid understanding of what a good fit entails. if you haven’t, let me go ahead and break it down for you.
A very tight slim fit is uncomfortable. Very uncomfortable.
The armhole of the jacket digs into both your back and your lower chest. You sweat right through the lining onto the jacket itself creating one hot mess. If you find yourself feeling very relieved the instance you pull off the jacket then it’s probably too tight.
The opposite of that is a fit that is too baggy. While this type of fit may feel very comfortable, it tends to look ridiculous.
Sagging shoulders. Sleeves up to his fingertips. It does not portray sophistication and class.
What you want to aim for is a look that is somewhat in between. One that highlights the chest and biceps you’ve spent time at the gym working on. A fit that still feels very comfortable even after highlighting those physical attributes.
Something like this.
Now that’s how a top-notch wedding tuxedo should fit. Like a glove.
Once you’ve got the fit locked down, it’s time to ensure your jacket has important details.
Details that will have you looking and feeling like a real superstar on your wedding day.
Important details such as high-quality wool fabric, leather detail gauntlet surgeon cuffs and lapels.
Since fabric quality is practically impossible to tell from an image, here’s a video.
Next, we take a look at the lovely gauntlet cuff you just saw in the video above.
The Gauntlet cuff
A designer detail that is a staple of James bond tuxedos and Tom Ford cocktail jackets.
This one, however, is extra beautiful. Firstly because it accompanies some lovely engraved wooden surgeon cuff buttons. And secondly, because it is made of leather.
Details that will have your friends and family truly amazed by your sense of style.
Speaking of leather, let’s take a look at the lapel.
The peak collar lapel
I personally love peak collared lapels. The larger the better. I’ve always felt that they tend to bring out a man’s frame better than ordinary notch collars.
Since this is your big day, we want you looking like the king you are.
The strong frame and all.
The pocket square is also an exceptionally nice touch. White silk with a beige trim. Colors that match both the shirt and the jacket.
Now you have the jacket part handled. Cool. What about the rest of the outfit?
Feast your eyes on the following well-co-ordinated look.
A look for the ages. Double monk strap shoes with formal brown pants and designer cufflinks. Outfits built around a beige wedding tuxedo in Nairobi Kenya don’t get any better than this.
The groom is sorted. What do we do about the groomsmen? We need a dress code that ensures you as the groom stand out, while the rest of your lineup still looks good.
You put them in simple half-coat suits. Something akin to the grey wedding theme displayed below.
