The tuxedo is formal wear at its very best. The tuxedo has been the standard for men's formal wear for years, they come in several styles and are easily updated with different accessories Black tuxedos can be for multiple events, gray or white tuxedos are strictly wedding attire. To get an idea of the classic tuxedo, think Frank Sinatra.
Go with a vest. You can have color but remember that there are flowers to coordinate with, and don't forget to match the handkerchief! Cuff links are a great accent of class and style, they can also make great grooms men gifts. Either a bow tie or long ties are appropriate. Ties can be modern and sleek and are a nice alternative to the traditional bow tie. The bow tie is mainstay of a classic tuxedo. If you decided to go with a real bow tie, make sure you or someone else knows how to tie one!
