Are you aware of all of the details that go into the creation of a tuxedo?

We are honored to provide inspiration to assist grooms in discovering their wedding attire. That’s why, here at Tuxedo Junction & Suits, we have gathered some tuxedo terms to help prepare you for choosing yours. If you are curious to learn what they are, be sure to continue reading:

  • Jacket. For your tuxedo jacket, the most common chosen are single or double-breasted. The difference ranges from one to four or two to six buttons. You will also be presented with the options of tails, where your jacket will be cropped in the front with two tails in the back, presenting its own, unique appearance.
  • Lapel. There are a few options that you can choose from for your lapel. A notched lapel is more common among suits, be can be worn with tuxedos as well, but will be the least formal lapel that is available. Peaked lapels are very popular, and incredibly formal. Shawl lapels are the absolute most formal, as they showcase a smooth shape, which complements any body type.
  • Pants. Tuxedo trousers most often showcase a single strip over the side seam. When wearing your pants, know that your jacked should always match the style and color. For example, if your jacket has satin lapels, the strip should also be satin among your pants.

With the right ensemble, you will showcase such luxury on your big day! These are just a few elements that will comprise your tuxedo. If you are ready to discover your tuxedo rental, please visit us here at Tuxedo Junction & Suits in the Westfield Topanga Mall in Canoga Park, California.
