Tuxedo Try-On Tips
STEP 1. THE SHIRT. Take your shirt off the hanger, if you are wearing a bow tie you will want to insert the studs through the buttonhole in your formal wear shirt so they substitute as buttons. If you are accessorizing your tuxedo with other neckwear such as a tie or ascot, you can skip the studs. Your formal wear shirt is also designed to accommodate formal wear cufflinks. First hold the open edges of the shirt cuff together so the two sides of the shirt cuff lay flat away from the wrist. Next, line up the shirt holes when your arm is at your side, the decorative part of the cufflink should be facing outward.
STEP 2. THE PANTS. Adjust the clasps on either side of your trousers at the waste until the fit is comfortable when your shirt is tucked in and pants are zippered. You can slip on your shoes and expect a horizontal crease, called the break, in the fabric across the front of your pant leg. The break is both visually appealing and tells the world you know how to dress!
STEP 3. THE ACCESSORIES: NECKWEAR and VEST or CUMMERBUND. Once you get to the accessories, we suggest starting with neckwear. Once the clasp is fastened it is easy to either tighten or loosen until comfortable by accessing the easy-to-use adjustment features. If you are wearing a vest, again we suggest taking advantage of the subtle adjustable features on the inside or outside of the garment to fine tune your fit. If a cummerbund was chosen, it should be worn with the pleats facing upward with half the cummerbund covering the shirt at the waist and the other half covering the trousers.
STEP 4. THE COAT. Apply the final touch, your tuxedo coat. You must be looking really good right now! When buttoning your tuxedo, which you may when walking into the room, or posing for photos, leave the last button unbuttoned if wearing a jacket with two or more buttons.
Tuxedo Coat Etiquette – If wearing a coat with 2 or more buttons, and you are buttoning it, leave the last one undone.
Tuxedo Vest Etiquette – If wearing a tuxedo vest, it is your choice whether to leave the last vest button unbuttoned or buttoned. We suggest the full button look on the vest, but either is appropriate.
