Tuxedo Rules (Pocket Square, Cufflinks) - Page 2

Keep in mind this is for a prom and not for a gala or anything important. I just don't want to break any unbreakable rules.

I'm pretty sure that is an unbreakable rule. Barrel cuffs are far too informal. What is your shirt collar size?

Sure, tuxedo shirts can be button cuff. Uniform tuxedo shirts usually have convertible barrel cuffs. I own a few (pre-sf) tuxedo shirts like that. The pique one looks quite nice, even though now I'm embarrassed to wear it with cuffs like that. However, at your prom, no one will notice if you use button cuffs. Don't worry about it. Just don't wear a colored vest that matches your date's red dress.

I suppose this must be one of those British/ American differences. Here in Britain, double cuffs are so ubiquitous that not wearing them with a dinner jacket is unheard off - most people who care about their appearance always wear them even with lounge suits.

14.5, but it usually isn't the neck that is the problem. I tried to order a Hugo Boss shirt which looked perfect - covered placket, french cuffs, pretty good material for under a hundred $, but not only was the neck inexplicably too large (usually a 14.5 is pretty perfect, if not a little tight), but the chest measurement must have been at least a 42 - it was enormous.

There was a slim-fit dress shirt (marcella front with studs, not fly front) on sale on the TM Lewin website, but it's gone now. Have you considered a mytailor shirt?

Anytime you present yourself, it is important. Cuff links subdued. I do not recommend matching the color of any element of your outfit to that of your date.

How about a red PS with a tux?

If acceptable, would a silk puff or a linen TV fold be best?

One more question:

Does anyone make a very modern, slim cummerbund? I don't really want to wear one at all, but if there were a slim one available (in black of course), I might consider it.

Generally if you accesorize your face, you dont need a cummerbund.

Eventually, people on this forum will run out of KISS pictures.
THEN what will you do?

FNB KISS platitude: I will never run out of KISS pictures but if we do, I will move on to something else. So quit clownin'

Yes, as long as it's white.

Actually, people might hate me for saying this, but in The Devil Wears Prada movie (awful movie), one of the characters wears a tuxedo with an open shirt and a red PS and looks pretty good.


Also, I'm bumping this because the KISS pictures may distract from it, and I need an answer.
