WHEN TO WEAR A TUXEDO?
A tuxedo is worn during special events, such as (Christmas) events, a prom or a wedding. A special outfit is of course a requirement for a special occasion! Tuxedos are usually worn as a prom costume, during an anniversary, dinner event, formal evening party, gala or wedding. Officially, a tuxedo is worn after 6 pm.
WHERE DOES THE TUXEDO COME FROM?
Let’s start at the very beginning. Where does the tuxedo actually come from? The English name for a tuxedo is "tuxedo jacket". After dinner, gentlemen often smoked a cigar, changing their dinner jacket for a 'smoking jacket'. A smart move to prevent unwanted smoke odors in clothing. After smoking the cigar, the smoking jacket was changed back to the dinner jacket! Very smart, gentlemen.
THE TUXEDO: A CLASSIC IN A MEN’S WARDROBE
Originally, a tuxedo consists in total of an original (tuxedo) jacket, a tuxedo shirt, bow tie and matching trousers (usually with shiny trim). During a black-tie dress code, a two-piece tuxedo suit is usually black or (dark) blue. Under a tuxedo jacket should be worn: a white shirt with a stand-up collar and a blind row of buttons. The tuxedo jacket closes with a single button placket and shiny, narrow lapels. The tuxedo trousers are usually worn with braces and have a shiny seam on the outside. With a tuxedo you usually wear black patent leather shoes and a black bow. Off you go, sir!
