How to Buy a Tuxedo: 13 Formalwear Tips from a Bespoke Tailor
Jake Mueser and Amber Doyle, tailors at bespoke suit-maker Against Nature, guide you through the process of buying a tux, whether you choose off-the-rack, made-to-measure, or custom-made.
Stay classic, but experiment
"With formalwear, you want to stay traditional but still step out of your comfort zone and try something new without going completely off the rails. Forget the black suit with black tie. Try a shawl-collar lapel instead of the typical peak lapel. Keep in mind that you wear tuxes to events where you're around a lot of the same people in the same social circle. This is especially true for weddings, so wear something that you can change up a little."
