Aside from thesehttp://www.theplussizebride.com written below are other things that you need to consider when deciding on which tuxedo to wear.
If you are tall and slenderhttp://www.theplussizebride.com consider yourself luckyhttp://www.theplussizebride.com as almost all styles of tuxedos will suit your body type. To look your besthttp://www.theplussizebride.com howeverhttp://www.theplussizebride.com consider opting for a double-breasted jacket with a bit of pads on the shoulders. This will lend you the appearance of a muscular built. Complement your jacket with trousers with a higher rise in the waist.
If you are tall with a solid or very muscular buildhttp://www.theplussizebride.com go for a single breasted jacket with one button. The length of your jacket should also be long enough to allow for movement. One good way to determine if the jacket’s length is appropriate for you is to relax your hands at your sides. If your finger tips reach the jacket’s bottomhttp://www.theplussizebride.com then this is the ideal length. Pair your jacket with a trouser that has a slightly wider leg to properly fit your muscular thighs. You might also want to consider
If you happen to be on the shorter side with a muscular buildhttp://www.theplussizebride.com steer clear from double-breasted jacketshttp://www.theplussizebride.com with plenty of shoulder paddinghttp://www.theplussizebride.com as these will make your body look wider. Insteadhttp://www.theplussizebride.com go for a single breasted jacket that has a button around the belt line. This can make your torso look longer and leaner. Pleated trousers can also be a good choice for you since the cut can make your legs appear longer.
If you are short and thinhttp://www.theplussizebride.com a jacket featuring a single breasted design with a low single button is suitable for you. Such a design will highlight your lines and will make the illusion that you are muscular. Use trousers with reverse double pleats to complete the look.
One of the most commonly overlooked part of a tuxedo is the lapel – the part that is folded back on the chest and the continuation of the jacket’s collar. Here are the primary choices:
Notch – this boasts a V-shaped cut that points inward. Because this accentuates the torso horizontallyhttp://www.theplussizebride.com do not attempt to channel this if you are a bit heavy.
Peaked – the fabric points of this jacket lapel are usually projecting upward. It leaves a narrow space between the collar and the lapel. This is ideally worn in extremely formal weddings.
Shawl – features a roundedhttp://www.theplussizebride.com continuous curve. This is a great option to go for regardless if you are tall and burly or short and muscular since it helps create a vertical line.
Long Tie vs. Bow Tie
A tie is something that will totally complete your look. Hencehttp://www.theplussizebride.com you would have to choose between a long tie and bow tie. Most modern grooms prefer long ties over bow ties because they are more versatile and could be worn in a wide variety of occasions.
When it comes to long tieshttp://www.theplussizebride.com your choice should be of the right proportion for your body. A wider than average tie with a length reaching the belt buckle will work well for you if you are tall and muscular. If you are a petite gentlemanhttp://www.theplussizebride.com a smaller tie with a skinnier width and shorter length is the most ideal choice. If you are an average-sized manhttp://www.theplussizebride.com thoughhttp://www.theplussizebride.com you should wear a tie that has a width ranging from 3 to 3.75 inches.
If you are opting for a bow tiehttp://www.theplussizebride.com howeverhttp://www.theplussizebride.com it is advisable that you go for either black or white since any of the two can be suitable for any event and would suit almost all kind of tuxedos.
As a rule of thumb when wearing long or bow tiehttp://www.theplussizebride.com it should rest comfortably between the points of your shirt’s collarhttp://www.theplussizebride.com but should not be too tight so that you do not look like you are being choked.
