When shopping for a classic tuxedo, there are many things to consider including, price, color, and fit. A classic tuxedo can do wonders for a guy who's looking to put an upgrade on his personal style. This type of tuxedo can be worn out to formal events and can make the wearer stand out for his exceptional taste and style.
Black and blue are the best colors to look at for classic tuxedos since black is a very classic color while darker shades of blue are also good and aren't as boring as your tired old black. If you're looking for a tuxedo that'll get the job done right every time, you won't ever go wrong picking a black or blue one. Grey and white are also good color options for classic tuxedos but aren't suitable for most occasions while black and blue and very versatile colors that work for almost all formal events.
When shopping for a classic tuxedo, you'll want to shop as if money weren't an option. While you shouldn't be spending $10,000 on a tuxedo, don't be afraid to spend upwards to, or even more than $1,000. You want to shop thinking that the tuxedo you're buying will be a lifetime investment since a good tux will last a lifetime and will look just as good twenty years from now as it did when you first bought it while a cheaper tux will start looking bad after a couple of wears and won't last more than a few years. So, you want to make sure the tuxedo you're buying is made with premium wools and silk so it looks and feels good. If you shop for a classic tuxedo thinking you'll keep the purchase to a couple hundred dollars, you will end up with something cheap, and you'll always remember it as that, cheap.
Whether you buy a readymade tuxedo or a custom tuxedo, you'll want to make sure it fits perfectly, even if that means paying for alterations. When you buy a readymade tuxedo, the price isn't likely to include free alterations, so be prepared to spend another hundred to two hundred dollars on getting the tux altered to fit your body because if you wear a tuxedo that doesn't fit just right, it will never look very good on you.
When you're buying a new classic tuxedo, consider getting one with a matching vest if you want to look extra suave. Also, your tuxedo jacket should also only have two buttons since anything more may look too conservative while anything less is too fashionable. Although, if you want to opt for a double breasted tuxedo, that can be a really classy choice as well and looks best with six buttons on the jacket. Classic tuxedos also have a nice silk strip along the sides of the pants, and covered buttons on the jacket with a silk lapel, so make sure the tuxedos you're looking at all have those requirements.
