Suit Vs Tuxedo
The principal physical difference between a tuxedo and a suit is satin presence. Traditionally, tuxedos have satin facing on their lapels, buttons, pocket trim and a satin side stripe down the pants leg. Suits do not contain any satin and usually have plastic buttons or buttons facing the same cloth as the coat (aka self buttons). Many new tuxedo alternatives have reduced the use of satin to a thin satin trim on the lapels and a thin satin bead on the leg of the jacket, but the main difference between the two is that tuxedos have satin on them and suits are not. Of course there are exceptions to every rule.
2 Piece Vs 3 Piece
There is no “suit game”. There is only wear what makes you feel like you are on top.
If you are not a suit guy, it will fail you worse then if you wore a singlet and flip flops (if you are comfortable in that).
I notice that more guys are wearing suits. Thats fine, but poorly cut, cheap fabric suits that are being constantly preened by the wearer is just telling the world that you are uncomfortable.
Develop your style first. If that happens to become three piece suit wearing gunslinger so be it.
Notched Lapels: the standard lapel
Peaked Lapels: have “peaks” that point upward
Shawl Lapels: a continuous piece without notches or peaks
Optionally, the cuff. It is the bit of fabric that’s folded up and pressed on your suit pants. While cuffless pants are more popular, we love a 1.5-inch cuff, and recommend it.
Single or Double Breast
What’s on top with all of these buttons?
You’re wearing a double-breasted jacket, my mate, not a single-breasted jacket.
There’s one difference here.
You’ll want to learn about both types of jackets. A more formal one. The other, that is more flexible.
As a fashionable guy, knowing your choices is pleasant
