Tuxedo vs. Suit

When choosing to wear a tuxedo or a suit for a wedding, there a several factors to consider. There is a perception that wearing a suit for a wedding makes the event less formal. This would be an accurate assessment.  Suits are acceptable attire for business environment, graduations, job interviews, funerals, and many other events. Choosing to wear a suit for your wedding can send the message that it is just another event. Choosing to wear a tuxedo sends the message that this event is special and deserves to be commemorated in an outfit that is appropriate for this occasion.

The differences in the appearance of a

tuxedo and suit are the presence of satin on the tuxedo. A tuxedo will be adorned with satin on the lapels, the pockets, a stripe on the leg, and the buttons. Anytime you add satin to any garment it makes it more unique. A suit will have lapels made of self material, matching non striped pants, and the buttons will be bone or self material. A man can feel very dapper in a well fitted suit and look like great to boot. But when a man wears a tuxedo, he feels like a million bucks!
