Choosing well-fitted tuxedo for your wedding day
You are driving down the road and for a second look down at your speedometer. A blur catches your eye. You look up and see a deer in your windshield. You have only a couple of seconds to react. You swerve and luckily miss both the deer and oncoming traffic.
Hitting a deer would not be any fun. Not only would it be unlucky for the deer but you will do serious damage to your car. It’s why when you drive in the country you have to be vigilant and look out for deer on the road.
Of course, sometimes deer also show up in city environments. A few months ago a deer crossed a local highway and ended up in somebody’s backseat. Luckily the driver was okay and it turned to be one of those crazy stories. I even joked with one of my hunting friends who wasn’t having any luck in deer season that all he needed to do was drive is pick up down Highway 121.
These kind of surprises are also possible in weddings. Particular when it comes to trends in clothing. Such as changing styles of men’s tuxedos.
Just as we expect the bride to have a dress, we expect the groom and his party to wear tuxedos.
Tuxedos became popular in the early 19th century. Ironically as a less formal alternative to the long tail dinner jacket. As general fashion has become less and less formal we have forgotten the origins of the tux. And now a tuxedo is considered the most formal type of suit a man can wear.
But unlike the dress most men rent their tuxedos. And this doesn’t have to be a complicated or boring process. Take your friends and have a good time with it. Though make sure you are staying with the style and theme of your wedding.
A popular style tuxedos today are slim fitting pants.
These types of pants are flat facing on the front. Have very narrow and almost formfitting legs with a small tapered opening around the ankles. It provides a nice sleek look.
You are not stuck with just wearing a black tuxedo. Other colors are possible and popular. For example, gray is a popular current tuxedo color as is navy blue.
And it is possible to link your tuxedos with the color scheme of the wedding by adding accents. Such as a cummerbund or boutonniere that is in the color of the wedding.
Weddings are the one time you get to play fancy dress up without guilt or shame. While the dress gets most of the attention, the men have to put thought into their attire as well. Most likely this will be a rented tuxedo. And choosing them doesn’t have to be hard or boring. You are not stuck wearing only black but make sure whatever colors you choose don’t clash with the wedding theme. While you may not enjoy wearing the formal suit, remember this is a special day. And it’s important for you to look your best. And that’s why to make sure you choose a nice and well-fitted tuxedo for your wedding day.
