Wearing a suit or tuxedo could be a new experience for some young men. If you’re trying to find a suit for a teenager or suits for a college kid, you might not be sure where to start. And, it might seem a little overwhelming when it’s time to start the process of finding and styling the right look for you. Here are 10 tips to make the journey easier.

BUILD YOUR LOOK

#1: Make Sure It Fits Well

It doesn’t matter how much you paid for your suit—if it doesn’t fit well, it won’t look good. When you rent a suit from Generation Tux, the process couldn’t be easier. All we need to get started is your basic information—height, weight, and jean size—and we handle the rest through our innovative fit technology, which can ensure that your suit or will fit perfectly. It’s as easy as answering a few questions on our website.

#2: Experiment With Color

Guys are getting more creative when it comes to color, moving beyond basic black. Let the color you choose to reflect your own personal style. We personally love blue and have blue wedding suits in a variety of different shades of this classic—yet bold—hue.

#3: Accessorize Well

It’s not just about the suit or tux. Selecting the right tie, pocket square and cufflinks will help put the finishing touches on your look.

#4: Invest In Good Shoes

In our opinion, it’s worth it to splurge on a great pair of shoes (in a basic black or brown) that you can wear to different functions. Not only do you want them to look good, but make sure they’re comfortable to wear. Not ready to make the investment? We have some options you can rent for a special occasion.

#5: Don’t Forget About Socks

Believe it or not, socks have become an important piece of the fashion puzzle. Go for a pair of socks that complements your overall ensemble, and don’t be afraid to choose something in fun print or pattern to add some whimsy to your look.

#6: Choose Great Fabric

You want your clothes to look and feel good when you’re wearing them. That’s why it’s so important to select fabrics that are lightweight, soft, and comfortable.

SELECT SWATCHES

#7: Put On a Crisp Shirt

The right dress shirt is the foundation of a great outfit. It helps to have a stable of quality dress shirts in different colors—and of course, you want them to be comfortable to wear. Many of our dress shirts are made of 100% breathable cotton and have an adjustable neck for expandability.

#8: Get Groomed

You want to make sure you look your best from head to toe. That means styling your hair, trimming a beard or mustache and making sure your fingernails are nice and neat.

#9: Take Care Of Your Clothing

Keeping all of your items clean and well-maintained is styling 101. Be sure to follow cleaning directions thoroughly (dry clean only really means dry clean only), store them properly, and take care of any stains asap. Learn about our cleaning process at Generation Tux warehouse and facilities.

#10: Wear What Makes You Happy

Trends come and go, so don’t wear something you simply won’t feel right in. Remember, confidence in key when it comes to looking your best!
