Whether you are looking for a modern silhouette-defining skinny-cut, or timeless tailoring with a flattering fit, our experts can help you find the tuxedo you need.
So, what is the difference between a proper tuxedo and a nice black suit? The devil is in the detail – a tuxedo (also known as a dinner jacket) has all the luxurious touches that make it the go-to men’s formal wear outfit. Satin is used on a true tux to give added opulence to lapels, buttons and pockets. And while you might chose a deep burgundy wool for the main fabric of your tux, the satin elements will nearly always be black.
Lapels can come in all shapes and sizes, with peak lapels tending to be found on the dressier jackets. But the dressiest option of all is the shawl lapel, which is only found on the tuxedo jacket.
Similarly, buttons can come in many shapes and formations, but the general rule of thumb is that the fewer buttons, the dressier the jacket. So it is more common for a tuxedo to feature only a single button fastening.
Dinner jackets and tuxedos are a wardrobe staple for any black tie event and are essential if you need to abide to a strict dress code. Here at Suits Distributors Cork we have an extensive range of dinner jackets and tuxedos to hire or buy. Our experts can help you navigate the complications of the tuxedo dress code and step out to your high-end event in serious style.
