black tie (formal wear)

  1. I need a Tuxedo for a recurring gig on trombone. It's been at least a decade since I even looked at what is out there. I know the first step would be to get measured for the appropriate fit. but what else do I need to know?


    maybe I should have asked the DB side? :meh:

    Google "eugene levy". His taste in tuxes has always been impeccable and inspiring. ;)

    If you don't buy them often (doesn't sound like it):

    1. Simple black
    2. Single breasted
    3. Satin lapels and buttons
    4. Simple dress shirt - pleated wing collar is the most common, but you can move past this to a pealted front normal collar now - wing collars are a bit old school.
    5. Black single bow tie - you need confidence to pull off any other type of box tie

    If all else fails, read this:

    I wouldn't buy from there - its a great website but its pricey!
