The Right Kind of Tux

There is no alternative for a suit or tuxedo that fits you well, so forget about borrowing one from your brother-in-law or your father’s old tux. Wearing a suit that fits you well will make you feel comfortable, cut down on perspiration and leave you looking drop dead handsome. Having your correct measurements is a good start, but there is more to consider than simply jacket size and inseam. Choose a style that suits your body type.

For Slender and Tall or Medium Height and Build (We Reckon about 170cm)

You’ll look best in a double-breasted jacket. The shoulders can be padded and the waist taken in to a comfortable extent to achieve a Mr. Apple figure. Definitely creates a great line and makes you look more muscular. Higher rise trousers look best when the legs are slightly fuller than normal. With this body type it is almost impossible to go wrong with your tuxedo choice.

For the Hunk from Baywatch

Go for the shawl collar tux. This is the smooth, thinner collar without the notched lapels. The jacket is usually single-breasted with one button. Relax your arms at your side and your fingertips should reach the bottom of the jacket. As with any good suits, your shirt cuffs should extend about an inch beyond the jacket sleeve. Be sure to choose a tie that is the right size for your face. If you have a wide face or thick neck, a small tie can make you look like you are being choked. Choose the spread collar rather than the wing tip and avoid thin bow ties. The jacket should feel a little loose so you can move easily and let some air circulate. If you have large or muscular thighs, ask that the trouser legs be slightly widened for the sake of comfort and looks.

For Stocky Build

The shawl collar would be suitable for you as well. The jacket should be single-breasted and the button should be around the belt line to make your torso appear longer and leaner. The jacket should not have a lot of shoulder padding. Your own shoulder length will help you look less broad in your photos. Some people think pleated trousers have a slimming look. The legs of the trousers should be cut as low as possible without looking unfinished.

For Typically Asian Build (Short and Slim)

A single-breasted jacket with a single low button will look best on you. This will lengthen the lines of your look. A double-breasted jacket or a notched or “peak” lapel will make you look broader. Smaller bow ties worn with vests with an elegant, understated pattern are your best choice.

Tips on Getting A Tailor-Made Suit

While off-the-rack suits are great and will do most of the time, let’s face it: everyone has different body characteristics. For your one big day, a custom-made suit may bring out the man in you better than your usual mass-produced suits.

Tip 1: Shop Around for A Good Tailor

Ask your friends, family and colleagues for recommendations and check out established tailors. You might have to make a little more effort since this is an increasingly rare trade.

Tip 2: The Right Cloth

The right fabric and the right colour determines the quality of your suit. First, choose a colour that suits you. While black is always a safe choice, you may wish to consider colours such as brown, navy blue or ivory white. Make sure that your colours complement your bride’s gown. The quality of fabric used is also critical in having a quality suit. If you can afford the price and the level of maintenance, go for natural fibres such as wool or silk. The downside is that you may need to invest more care in the suit subsequently.

Tip 3: The Right Size

Remember to talk to your tailor and provide constant feedback on how you would like the suit to fit you. The thing about customisation is that the suit can have visual correction, such as making chubby men appear slimmer and more attractive.

Tip 4: Your Preferred Style

Browse through plenty of fashion magazines, sites and boutiques to find out which kind of cut suits you. Discuss with your tailor, who should be experienced enough to know most styles in the market. Best of all, you can specify the number of pockets to keep the snakes and frogs.

Tip 5: Final Fit

Be sure to ask for final adjustments if necessary when you try the suit on. Check your fit from every angle in the mirror.
