My first tuxedo

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
My sister's wedding is coming up in a couple of weeks. I am going to be part of the wedding ceremony and I was told a month prior the wedding that I needed to wear a tuxedo. Never owned one, and I'm really opposed to renting, so I went out and bought one.

This is what I ended up with after some tailoring



















And a couple of James Bond poses for good measure





So how'd I do? You guys think I'm ready to rock some bridesmaids at the wedding?

A few things I'd change, but overall, fantastic.

It seems you're already sufficiently full of yourself, so I don't really need to answer that, do I? The details you all got right, no single fault there; the cut is ridiculously tight imo (especially the interplay of shirt and suit cuff), but that seems to be your general preference. edit: wait! loose the watch.

Vents!

jacket sleeves are WAY too tight for my taste Myke.

It's all preference, but I think with my frame, I pull it off well.

Dig the skinny lapels, M. Good swagger too. You look like you have fun wearing your clothes.

obviously works better with your thin frame, but it seems like there is some wrinkling due to the french cuff shirts preventing the jacket sleeves from sitting at full extension.

Looks great dude!

Sleeves are too tight...looks like they don't fit you IMHO...
Gives the impression that you borrowed the suit from a skinnier guy....
Overall fit is great though....only the vents detract from the whole....
Good job overall

Overall very good. A tuxedo shirt should only have three stud holes. Your cummerbund looks quite low as well; it can be barely be seen when the jacket is buttoned. So if you lift the cummerbund up it would cover up that last stud hole.

You look comfortable in it. Ace.

in this case would it be more acceptable/more aesthetically pleasing to wear barrel cuffs?


also how many buttons should there be on the jacket sleeve- 1, 4?

No, always French cuffs or single cuffs with black tie, never barrel cuffs—way too informal. Four buttons is the norm on a dinner suit and lounge suit.
