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.
Size depends on your proportions—to a degree
"At Against Nature, we favor slimmer, narrower lapels and collars that are proportional to the individual's body. So if a man has very broad shoulders, they're going to be slightly wider, and vice versa for a very narrow-shouldered guy. The same goes for accessories. Our silhouette tends to be slim with no pleats—just a clean garment working with very small and subtle details."
