All too often, men choose traditional suits and tuxedos that don’t emphasize their individual style preferences. For your special day, make sure you customize your suit or tuxedo rental with pieces that really make you stand out. You’ll feel more comfortable and outgoing in clothes that express your personality. Plus, photos of the event will show you looking top-notch and really illustrate how much fun you and your friends had.
It’s easy to customize suits and tuxedos when you rent them online from a company that has thousands of accessories. It makes color-matching a breeze and the possibilities endless.
If you’ve been paying attention at all, you’ll have realized that gone are the days of dull socks. Not many people will see your socks on your wedding day, but you can still use them to add your own personality to an outfit. Choose bright colors or fun patterns. Or better yet, go with something silly that matches your personality or the wedding theme. Getting married in the desert? Cacti socks are cool! Love dogs? Try out our Pup Socks to rock a fun look and help out the ASPCA. If you do choose to wear fun socks, show them off accordingly. They make for a great keepsake for your groomsmen, as well.
The typical, black tuxedo tie or bowtie looks great for elegant events. The name “black-tie affair is, after all, derived from the black tie. But for less formal events, you always have the option to spice it up a bit. You can add a splash of color to make your tuxedo or suit look more festive for the occasion. Or throw in a pattern for a bit more flair. Feel free to mix and match your ties to reflect your personality and the personalities of your groomsmen.
Lapel pins show that you and your friends are together as a group. They’re perfect for bachelor and wedding parties when you want to show your close friends how much you value them. It’s also a great way to add a small personalization that is not distracting to the complete look. In lieu of boutonnieres, lapel pins can be as simple as a small, faux flower or as fun as personal as you want.
Buying shoes for a special occasion can cost a lot of money, especially if you’re not sure you’ll ever wear them again. I’m thinking of those glossy tuxedo shoes. Renting shoes online lets you save money while customizing your tuxedo or suit for an event. It’s a great way to make sure all the groomsmen match, too.
You won’t believe how many types of shirts there are for tuxedos. Some have plain fronts, pleated fronts, or pique bib fronts that look very formal. You also get to choose between a variety of fabrics, collar styles, and cuff styles to complete the suit’s look. Then there are even more options when it comes to suits. There’s a whole world of colors awaiting you. Although, if you’re a more traditional guy, we always recommend a sturdy, white shirt.
Vests can add a lot of attitude and color to an outfit. You can choose from solid color vests or patterned vests with a modern aesthetic. Adding a vest changes your look from a two-piece suit to a three-piece, Generation Tux offers the matching vest and suit but all of their colors complement one another. Feel free to mix and match.
Cummerbunds may seem old-fashioned, but they serve a purpose when you wear a single-breasted jacket. Wearing a cummerbund hides your waist, which is perfect when you don’t want to wear a belt. Although, word to the wise, if you’re more on the hefty side, definitely go with a vest instead of a cummerbund. Traditionally, men don’t wear cummerbunds with ties. Bowties are okay, though!
Cufflinks are jewelry for your shirt. Most people choose to rent simple cufflinks that add a small amount of glitter to their suits and tuxes. Keep in mind that you only need cufflinks for French cuff shirts, which don’t come with buttons. Most sets of cufflinks will offer studs, as well, if you’re wearing a tuxedo. It really is a great accessory.
People won’t see your suspenders when you have your suit or tuxedo jacket on. Once you start dancing at a wedding reception, though, the jacket comes off and everyone can view the suspenders. Suspenders not only add to your style but also keep your pants firmly in position while you dance the night away.
The type of belt that you choose usually depends on the color of the suit that you wear. Traditionally, black suits require black belts. If you choose a blue suit, though, a brown belt can look terrific.
