Tux or suit? It’s an age-old question that confuses men on guest lists everywhere. Before
choosing which to wear, let’s explore what the difference is between a tuxedo
and a suit. They’re both dressy, but each has their own subtle attributes that make them
perfect for various special occasions, like weddings or prom.
A Tuxedo is…
When selecting a tuxedo, you’ll notice these garments are usually trimmed
in satin. Look to the lapel of the jacket, the side-seam of the pants,
the surfaces of the buttons and the lining of the pockets. This elegant
fabric feature is reserved only for tuxedos.
When dressing up a tux, the most common accessories include a
high-stance vest that peeks above a buttoned jacket, a
pert bow tie, or long necktie finished with a Windsor knot.
A tux exudes a higher level of class and formality at any event. When you
want to dress to impress, a tuxedo is the way to go. A tuxedo is the formalwear
of choice for the man who already wears suits to work each day. Remember, your
wedding is a wonderful day to remember and pictures are forever.
A Suit is…
A suit is more relaxed than a tuxedo. You can mix and match jacket and pant colors, experiment with a variety of fabrics
ranging from silk to tweed, and add personality with patterned socks or pocket squares.
