Men's Suits: Find Deep Discounts OnlineVisit Majon's Article Marketing Directory for more great articles
My nephew's wedding is next month and it's a black tie affair. I have to admit I don't know much about tuxedos or other formal attire, so I did a little research at online shops that sell men's suits.
A formal suit requires a shirt with link cuffs, that is, cuffs that use cufflinks rather than buttons. Such shirts come in two styles: single and French cuffs. (French cuffs are also called double cuffs.) French cuffs are twice as long as single cuffs and are worn folded over. They are standard at black tie events. Cufflinks should be gold or sterling silver in a simple, tasteful shape. Double-sided cufflinks show off French cuffs better than one-sided ones. Cufflinks should coordinate with the shirt, tie, belt buckle, and watch.
French cuff shirts are actually quite versatile. In addition to being the standard for formal wear, French cuffs go perfectly with dark denim jeans. A fashionable man might wear French cuffs with bright solid and print shirts. You can dress French cuffs up for formal and down for fun. Just don't ever wear French cuffs open and loose-that looks silly, not in the least bit cool.
The rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding requires less formal attire. A blazer or sports jacket is less formal than a suit, but not entirely casual. Blazers usually have one center vent or two side vents. Single-breasted is more common than double-breasted, which has a distinct nautical look.
Blazers come in different fabrics for different occasions. A pure wool or wool blend blazer has a professional or country club look, perfect for the pre-nuptial club dinner. A traditional cut and soft, classic colors mark wool blend blazers, which wear very well. Pure wool blazers typically come in dark colors, usually variations of navy, brown, and black. Theses classic sports jackets have a luxurious look and feel and will last for years and years. Designer blazers are specialty pure wool blazers with distinctive cuts. Sports jackets also come in velvet, camel, and corduroy.
Every sports jacket, suit, or tuxedo should be dry-cleaned every five or six times you wear it. Otherwise, just brush it off before you hang it up, unless of course you've spilled something on it. Use sturdy hangers to support the shoulders.
Online sites not only provide great buys on men's suits, they also give advice on what to wear when. And that is helpful when you're preparing for a wedding.
