The Tuxedo for the modern man.
Smart, classy, sleek and sophisticated. These are some of the synonyms that are often attributed to the classic tux. If this sounds like what you’re looking for then look no further than Swish. With a classic shawl lapel and a modern take on the classic tuxedo, this is one that you can rely on to ensure you look… Swish.
In the most technically correct sense, the best option is a crisp white shirt. Pair your shirt with French cuffs to ensure that you have the look.
In the most formal sense, you would match your tie with the facing of your lapel (the folded bits of fabric at the front of the jacket). This is to say that if you have a satin lapel, you would have a satin tie. With this in mind, a black satin bowtie seems like that best option however, here at Suitably, whilst we love the rules, much like the matrix, we believe that some rules can be bent, others can be broken (if you don’t believe us, google the term sprezzatura and get back to us). Play around with texture and fabrics however, it’s mostly recommended that you stay with black.
Black shoes. There is no alternative. In the classic sense, the best choice is a simple black oxford however, we’re also a fan of double monk strap shoes for something that’s a little unique but also quite formal and very cool.
This is a great option for your big day, cocktail parties, black tie events and anything that requires a black-tie dress code. This is one that you keep for special occasions. The days where you need to look your best.
