Looking Good In A Tuxedo

Photos above was taken during the wedding of husband’s friends. The old man was one of the groom’s man and the lil guy was the ring bearer. Wearing that tuxedo was the most uncomfortable moment for some men like my better half and even for that lil man. It was his friend’s wedding and it’s a great experience to be able to wear that kind of suit just for once. They both look awesome and handsome, don’t you agree? The tux was a rental at men’s Warehouse.

Another term for tuxedo is dinner suit or dinner jacket (British English). It is a male outfit for formal evening occasions, traditionally of black or dark color, and consisting of a suit with contrasting satin or grosgrain lapel facings and matching braid on the trouser out-seam, a bow-tie, and a cummerbund.

Tuxedo (or, colloquially, tux) sees most use in North America. In Britain it is sometimes used to refer to the white version of the suit jacket. Conversely, this white jacket is generally known as a dinner jacket in North America.

In French, Italian, Portuguese, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian and also other European languages, the jacket is called a smoking. In French the shawl-collared version is le smoking Deauville, while the peaked-lapel version is le smoking Capri. In many places, it is often nicknamed a “penguin suit” given its black & white colors. Etymology according to Source: Wikipedia
