A couple of days ago while watching the most emotionally charged show of my choice “Suits” a sudden thought really hit my mind. Many of the male members were wearing tuxedos and looking absolutely smashing. It’s a total myth that wearing that black tux will make you resemble a waiter in the event. A tuxedo makes you look very elegant and formal at the same time.

Don’t just show up, show out 🙌#mondaymotivation #squadgoals . . . . . 📸@adamlowephoto

The beauty of a tux lies in its little details hence it is very important. The reason why a tux is so expensive is that it definitely differentiates you from other fish in the pond. The most expensive tuxedo in the world is from the top fashion brand Kiton costing 50,000$. Totally a pain to your pocket.

According to statistics, the average cost that goes into making a tux is 186$ U.S.D. The main difference between a tux and a suit is the presence of satin. Suits comprise of a jacket and trouser made up of the same material while tuxedos are technically a formal suit and are called dinner suits in England. A tuxedo always requires a special occasion and can not be worn before 5 pm. A tux has to be made out of a high quality material. Being such heavy on the wallet , it is always better to rent a tux if you need for only a single occasion.

Some things that should be kept in mind while wearing or buying a tuxedo are that it should always be made up of black or midnight blue colour . You always need to stick to the classic plain white pocket squares and always try wearing patent leather slippers beneath. Make sure you team up your tux with a bow tie and waistcoat or any one of them . At all costs take your respective measurements into account. The colour of the facing materials of the lapels should always match the tuxedo fabric .

Having jetted pockets and a peaked lapel distincts a tux from a suit , make sure you never make a mistake when buying the former. Referring to the renowned Kapil Sharma show , our most beloved bollywood actor Ranveer Singh is seen wearing a navy blue colour  tuxedo teaming it up with shining leather shoes and a red pocket square and looking totally dapper. He is seen carrying the look with immense elegance and simplicity at the same time. He is also seen a carrying a clean shaven beard which completely justifies the decentness of wearing a tuxedo .

Some of the best and top notch brands in the world selling tuxedoes are Armani Exchange, Canali, Club SP, Satya Paul and you can always consider Sabyasachi if in India , Prada , Ralph lauren , Hugo Boss , Brioni , Versace , Burberry , Versace , Marks & Spencer , Gucci , Bottega Veneta , Paul Smith , Kyle thomas and Alexander Mcqueen.

Movie fraternity totally love wearing a tux. Recently at the Oscars, Leonardo Dicaprio was seen wearing Giorgio Armani tux and looking out of this world. According to the gentleman’s gadget, Brad Pitt totally nailed the look . Our very own James Bond has been seen carrying a tuxedo from across the ages . Bond has worn a tuxedo 21 0f the 23 official Bond films .

Most people today prefer their tux with 2 button notch lapel suit that is fitted with satin facings and leg strips. A Tux has become an essential buy of the  Indian weddings. I totally love Chandler’s look from FRIENDS, wearing a black tux and waiting for Monica at the altar. So, guys get going and do not leave an inch while looking for the best fitting tux for yourself.

Long story short, always rents a tux if you are not going to wear these more than once.
