Buy the Right Tuxedo
A tuxedo suit is considered investment clothing. While you wonít be wearing it as often as your classic suit, some events do call for something special, and you might want to opt for a tuxedo, especially if the event dress code is specified in the invitation.
If you are shopping for a tuxedo suit to match the dress code of a specific event youíve been invited to, you probably have a clear idea of what you are looking for. In case you are not familiar with the differences between formal dress codes, or just need a quick refresher, weíll cover the basics of what you need to know below.
Tuxedo Suit Dress Codes
Black tie is the most common formal dress code. Here is what you are going to need if you are invited to a black tie event:
First of all, you will need a tuxedo, since wearing a suit is not acceptable in this case. The tuxedo should be either black or midnight blue, with a single button. Underneath your tux, you should wear a white dress shirt with a black bow tie. If possible, avoid pre-tied bow ties, as the difference between pre-tied and self-tied is noticeable.
Creative Black Tie
Although the name can be a bit misleading, creative black tie is essentially very similar to black tie, with just a bit of room for creativeness.
A black or midnight blue tuxedo is still a must, along with all other elements of the black tie dress code. The difference lies in a small detail. Creative black tie calls for adding one more color to your black and white look. You still want to look formal, so your best bet is to do this subtly, either with a vest or cummerbund, and choose a color that will blend nicely with the rest of your attire.
Black Tie Optional
The least formal attire of all black ties.
While a tuxedo is not mandatory, it is still preferred, and you definitely want to wear one if possible. However, you donít need to stick to black tie requirements as strictly. Going with a dark-colored tuxedo, a dress shirt, and a matching bow tie is just as acceptable as a full black tie attire.
Finally, if you are looking for some more creative options that do not necessarily fit into formal dress codes, but are still classy to wear, you can find different colorful and patterned tuxedos in our collection. Express yourself with one of our tuxedo suits and dress for any occasion.
With over 80 tuxedo designs in different colors and patterns, as well as made of different materials including wool, velvet, and linen, you are bound to find a tuxedo you will love to wear every chance you get.
What Is The Difference Between a Tuxedo and a Suit?
Although many people are unfamiliar with them, there are several differences between a tuxedo and a suit. Unlike a suit, a tuxedo jacket has facings on lapels, pockets, and buttons (satin, in most cases), as well as peak lapels or a shawl collar. When it comes to pants, itís worth noting that tuxedo pants lack belt loops and may or may not have a satin stripe down the outseam.
Apart from the differences in their appearance, suits and tuxedos also differ in their formality. While suits are often worn throughout the day, the norm is that tuxedos are reserved for the evening.
That being said, tuxedos no longer come only in black and midnight blue with the black tie dress code in mind. If you want a less formal tux, you can browse our collection for some more colorful and bolder options.
How Much is a Tuxedo Suit?
Tuxedos are generally considered to be investment clothing and more expensive than suits. However, at StudioSuits you can find quality tuxedos with price tags as low as $140. Considering that they are usually quite expensive, most people tend to rent tuxedos for formal occasions, especially if they donít expect to wear one often.
We believe that every man should own a tuxedo suit, and with the low prices we offer, you will never have to worry about the dress code of an event you are invited to and go through the hassle of finding and renting a tuxedo for the occasion.
With all the different designs, materials, and colors we offer, finding the right tuxedo suit for you is just a matter of your personal taste.
What Defines a Tuxedo?
By definition, a tuxedo, or evening jacket, as they are referred to in Britain, is a menís semi formal evening attire. The complete tuxedo outfit includes the jacket, trousers, bow tie, and a cummerbund or vest. The defining detail of a tuxedo suit is the presence of accent fabrics (usually a silk material, such as satin or viscose) and their location: on the lapels, buttons, pockets, and down the outseam of the pants.
