Usually we take the tuxedos out when we receive an invitation for an formal event like a black tie one or a wedding. 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. But in the recent times the double breasted tuxedos have taken the front seat and have become a trend which seems to capture the eye of the younger generation.
So what makes the double breasted tuxedos so different than the single breasted ones? When it boils down at last they are still tuxedos right? Yes the double breasted tuxedos have the regular characteristics of all the tuxedos starting from the proper fit to the grosgrain lapels but there are two rows of buttons on the tuxedo jacket as opposed to the single row in the single breasted styles. This is the default look of the double breasted styles and it gives the garment a dashing look. Also the double breasted tuxedos mens have the ability to make you look more stylish and fashion forward given that there are very few who break from the mold of the single breasted tuxedos and dare to try a new one.

Thus the double breasted tuxedos will make you cruise through any formal event without much effort. Even with the double breasted suits they are usually reserved for the most formal events rather than the daily use. The double breasted tuxedos or be it the suits are definitely better for the formal and classy events when compared to the single breasted tuxedos and there is no ways about that.

Thus we would recommend you to go with the mens double breasted tuxedos and see how it works for you. Now you need not panic much thinking that you will be the only one trying out this look.

While choosing the double breasted tuxedos there are a few things that we think you should note. When you consider the details carefully then you will be resulted with a formal and classic outfit that will make you look great for any type of event. When we talk about details we include every small ones like the fabric of the tuxedos, fit of the tuxedos, the type of lapel on the tuxedo and much more. While most would consider all these to inconsequential but when it all accumulates then it makes for the best outfit.
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 double breasted tuxedos 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 the 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 linen double breasted tuxedo if you do not mind this detail and you also do not mind wrinkles on your tuxedo. Synthetic ones like polyester double breasted tuxedo 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 when you consider comfort to be a main characteristic for your garment.
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 the luxurious double breasted tuxedos are usually recommended for the special occasions like the weddings and the award events.
The next thing that you will have to note is the color of the double breasted tuxedo. The other color tuxedo is the one that gets easily noted by the viewer on the first glance about your outfit. Thus it would be best for you to choose the color of the double breasted tuxedo with care. There are events and the dress codes that come with it which restrict the usage of the colored double breasted tuxedos 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 the events it would be best for you to go with the double breasted classic tuxedo styles in the 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 double breasted tuxedos and navy double breasted tuxedos. 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.
But when the event you attend is a semi formal style and you want to try something new then you can go with the colored double breasted tuxedos. In recent times there is an increased influx in the use of the other color double breasted 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 the dark shades like the Burgundy double breasted tuxedos 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.
The next detail that you will have to note is the type of the 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 the 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.
As for the styling of the double breasted tuxedos they look the best when they are styled with the formal garments but you can also try to reinvent the look using different garments for different events. 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 with 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. 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.
