Tuxedo Dressing Tips


Dressing Tips

Jacket
  • Coat sleeves should fall to break in wrist when arms are down at side.
Pants
  • The perfect length pant breaks slightly on top of the shoe and angles a bit downward in the back.
Shoes

  • Black dress socks and shoes should be worn with a black or dark colored tuxedo. White socks and shoes should be worn with a white tuxedo.
  • If shoe requires laces, they should be strung in horizontal fashion.
Accessories
  • The tips of the collar on a winged-collared shirt should be tucked behind the bow tie, not left to flap in front of the tie.
  • Cummerbunds are worn with pleats facing up.
  • Shirt sleeves should be extended just beyond jacket sleeves (about half a inch).
  • Cuff links should match studs.
  • A boutonniere should be worn on the left lapel and tilted slightly outward. Don't worry if the button hole is sewn closed, which is often the case. Just pin the boutonniere on top.
