With wedding and prom season just around the corner, it’s time to start looking at formal wear options. Over the next few weeks (or months) you’ll likely find yourself in the following fashion dilemmas: traditional or funky, tux or suit, notch lapel or shawl, black or blue, etc. But don’t worry, we’re here to help. We have suits, tuxedos, and accessories to fit just about any special occasion and style advice to make sure you’ll look great on the dance floor.
One of the hottest trends this season are blue suits and tuxedos. Wearing a blue tuxedo or a formal blue suit allows a guy to stand out in a sea of black, while still conforming to the rules of formal dress. Blue has deep roots in men’s formal wear, dating back to the mid-‘30s when midnight blue was being produced more than black (check out our History of Tuxes for more on this). And now blue is back and better than ever! It was really popular this award season, as Hollywood’s leading men made fashion news at the Golden Globes and the Oscars by taking blue to the red carpet.
2. Mix it up: Mix a blue jacket with traditional black pants for an edgier formal look.
3. Keep it classic: when mixing in color like blue to formalwear, it’s wise to keep the other components of the look traditional – add a tie, cufflinks, and a vest to complete the look.
Our Mystic Blue Tux pairs fresh color with traditional style in a striking way. This new take on navy stands out in the crowd, photographs beautifully and the black faille lapel piping elevates this tuxedo from ordinary to amazing in a slimmer cut. Add in the Mystic blue vest for a classic formal effect.
Dazzle the crowd with our Bright Blue Notch Lapel Suit — it’s a true showstopper. Its crepe texture looks incredible in the light, has a very flattering drape and will especially pop in photos and across a crowded room.
Our Midnight Blue Tuxedo provides a solid foundation for an infamous look. The luxurious, in-hand feel of its premium fabric delivers a natural drape that’s flattering in ways cheaper wool can’t replicate. Its mystique comes from the delivery of a richer, darker appearance under artificial light because it absorbs more of the light spectrum than black. It also absorbs quite a bit of attention as this color is featured consistently on the red carpet.
Our Navy Blue Notch Lapel Suit is appropriate for almost every kind of event and is incredibly flexible when it comes to styling with shirts, ties, and accessories. In the daytime, the light brings out its casual blue side, but at night, it’s more formal, appearing almost black—a transitional quality that every man can rely on to look great.
The single-button, Mystic Blue Peak Lapel Suit presents a new take on the navy suit. This updated hue gives it an effortlessly fresh and modern feeling and looks great in photographs. Add the matching vest for an unmatched dapper look.
