About Double-Breasted Tuxedos

When it comes to tuxedos most of us imagine the usual black tuxedos with the white tuxedo shirt and a black bow tie. This standard attire has saved men from the time of fussing over a new outfit everytime they receive an invitation for a formal event. The classic tuxedo style and the combined garments that come with it have remained unchanged over the years, and people have now gotten used to the style. But every now and then it is better to try a new style that isn't the same as every other person's tuxedos in the room. But most of us hesitate feeling that trying out a new style can bring down the formality of the attire thus making it inappropriate for the event. But what if we say that the alternate style is more formal and classier than the usual tuxedos look? In this article, we discuss the double breasted tuxedos and everything that you need to know about the style before you purchase it for yourself.

These events aren't very common, and thus it is important that you dress impeccably for these rare events. For a long time, the single breasted tuxedos have dominated the formal wear world and people have gotten used to the style.

Fabric Choices

Wool Tuxedos

Starting with the fabric of the men's double breasted tuxedo you can choose the one that would offer you the proper look and also the one which would make you feel comfortable. It is always better to go with high quality tuxedo double breasted for a stylish and comfortable fit. Double breasted tuxedo wool is considered to be the best when it comes to winter events. Go for thicker weights of the wool double-breasted tuxedos if you live in a place with harsh winters. Wool is soft and comfortable to wear and thus are the most preferred choice for most men. Also wool being a natural fabric does not cause rashes or allergies. There are variations in the wool double-breasted tuxs like the flannel and worsted wool ones which you can choose according to your need.

Summer Fabrics

For summer use make sure that you go with a nicely ventilated and breathable fabric that can evaporate moisture fast. The double breasted tuxedos are thicker because of the extra flap and thus the thick wool tuxedos might start to feel uncomfortable as the day gets hotter. Cotton ones are the ones that are most recommended when you are picking the tuxedo for a beach wedding or any summer event. You can also try the cotton blended fabrics when you are on a budget but you still want a comfortable fabric. Linen double breasted tuxedos are a good style for people who are looking for a lightweight semi formal style that would work for beach weddings and such. Linen has better moisture evaporating properties when compared to cotton but the garment can be rough to wear when you first buy it. Linen softens with use, and thus it is better to go with a linen double breasted men's tuxedo if you do not mind this detail and you also do not mind wrinkles on your tuxedo. Synthetic ones like polyester and rayon double breasted tuxedos can be non-absorbent and uncomfortable to wear especially during the warmer seasons like summer and spring. Thus it is better to avoid synthetic double breasted tuxedo men when you consider comfort to be a main characteristic of your garment.

Luxurious Fabrics

For special occasions, you will need a style that is more luxurious than the above-mentioned classic ones. In that case, you can go with double breasted tuxedo silk or velvet tuxedos These luxurious fabrics have a natural sheen about them that will ensure your look to stand out from the crowd of the usual styles. These types of luxurious double breasted tuxedos are usually recommended for special occasions like the weddings and award events.

Color Choices

Formal Colors

The next thing that you will have to note is the color of the men's double breasted tuxedo. The other color tuxedo is the one that gets easily noted by the viewer at the first glance about your outfit. Thus it would be best for you to choose the color of the tuxedo double breasted with care. There are events and the dress codes that come with it which restrict the usage of the colored double-breasted tuxs and thus before you choose the attire of the day it would be best for you to consider the nature of the event and what would work for the best.

Black tie events are the ones that usually require the tuxedo look. These are the most formal events and for these events, there is the black tie attire that you will have to follow. When it comes to these types of events it would be best for you to go with the double breasted classic tuxedo styles in dark colors. The usual pick would be for you to go with the black double breasted tuxedo since it is the most formal style. But this has been the norm for a long time now, and there is a great chance that you are bored with the style. If that is the case you can choose to go with the dark tuxedos like the midnight blue and navy double breasted men's tuxedo. These tuxedos would look the same as the black tuxedos when seen from a distance, and thus the formality of the attire is maintained for the event.

Semi-Formal and Casual Colors

In recent times there has been an increased influx in the use of the other colors of these tuxedos and you can try the style for yourself without risking much. If you are a person who is trying out the style for the first time then you can choose dark shades like the Burgundy and olive green double breasted tuxedos. Though it is a colored tuxedo the deep shade would make them look more formal and classic.

But if you are confident enough about the style and would not mind some stares through your way then we would recommend you to try the light colored double breasted tuxedos. Tan double breasted tuxedos and cream double breasted tuxedos are some of the recommendations when you want to try out this style. If you are looking for the double breasted wedding tuxedo that is happening in the summer and spring then you can choose these light colored tuxedos. If you go with these styles you can add your own touch to the outfit since these events are more on the casual side and going with these tweaked styles would give you an outfit that showcases your personality.

Lapel Styles

The next detail that you will have to note is the type of lapel on the double breasted tuxedo. The lapel is the one detail that captures much attention about the tuxedo jacket. In that case make sure that the look matches properly the type of look you aim for the event. Usually, double breasted tuxedo peak lapel is the one that is recommended for formal events since the particular style of the lapels is considered to be the most formal of all the bunch. But if the event you attend is more on the dressier side then you can choose to go with the double breasted shawl tuxedo since the look is more dashing and stylish than the peak lapel tuxedos. The other choice is the notch lapel, but it is not considered to be a good pick since notch lapels are too casual to be paired with the double breasted tuxedos.

Styling Double-Breasted Tuxedos

As for the styling of the double breasted tuxedos they look the best when they are styled with formal garments, but you can also try to reinvent the look using different garments for different events. 

Formal Styling

For a formal style that would work for the black tie events it would be best to style the standard double breasted 2 button tuxedo with a white tuxedo shirt and a bow tie. To complete the look you can add the double breasted tuxedo suit outfit a pair of black patent leather shoes. Other than this you can also try the 3 piece double breasted tuxedo look by adding with the above-mentioned outfit a double breasted tuxedo vest. 

Casual and Semi-Formal Styling

While the double breasted tuxedo dress on the whole would work even for the most formal events you can style it as separates for the semi formal and casual events. Double breasted tuxedo jacket and the double breasted tuxedo blazer can be paired with the chinos and even jeans to try a new style. 

To know about the styles available in the market it would be best for you to go through the double breasted tuxedo sale and make the right pick.
