    I just bought a single button, notch lapel Armani Collezione tux and got a pretty good deal, I think.

    The pants don't have side tabs but fit fine so it didn't bother me. Just wondering what the story is on this?

    Also, I wanted to wear a regular tie instead of a bow tie but wasn't sure about what kind of shirt to buy.
    -should I get a wing collar pleated shirt or turn down collar plain shirt with french cuffs?

    any help, suggestions are much appreciated.

    oh, one last thing, the pants have a single pleat but I believe I am correct with going no cuff right?

    Definitely do not cuff the pants.

    You really, really, should wear a bow tie, but if you don't, I'd go with a turn-down collar. If you insist on making it look like a suit, you might as well be some sort of consistent. I'd get a pleated or pique shirt before I'd get a plain-front, regardless of the collar.

    Many modern tuxes do not have side buckles. You need suspenders, regardless of how well you think the pants fit.

    You should wear a turn-down collar regardless.

    Go with the bowtie in a tux shirt of your choice.
