Truly, nothing makes a man look sharper than a well fitted tuxedo.

Tuxedos are a must-have for men with certain social lives. They should certainly wear a tuxedo to a wedding, especially if they are the groom. How can a man wear a tuxedo to their fullest potential and really dazzle the room with their appearance? There are a few things a man can add to their tuxedo to really make the most of it. Here is everything men need to know about how to wear a tuxedo.

Of course, the first and most obvious tip is having a tuxedo that is made to fit you :). If you don't already have a tuxedo suit, come visit us at our showroom in Montreal for a tailoring experience unlike any other.

Should You wear a Necktie or a Bow Tie with Your Tuxedo?

A bow tie should adorn your neck every time you wear a tuxedo

Sometimes we are asked if men can wear a necktie with a tuxedo.

The short answer is no. Not really.

The long answer, well...

Rule zero of fashion is there are no rules in fashion. There are trends, especially when it comes to wearing a tuxedo, but you can always deviate from a trend if you feel like it is the right thing to do.

There is a reason why you don't often see men wearing a necktie with a tuxedo. It has to do with when you wear a tuxedo and when you wear a bow tie or a necktie.

Most men only wear a tuxedo for very formal evening events. Unless a man has a very particular style, bow ties are also considered a formal men's fashion accessory.

Patterned bow ties are often considered formal men's fashion accessories.

If you are attending a casual event and you want to wear your tuxedo to it, you can wear a necktie, especially a nice necktie like a silk necktie. Otherwise, it is better to stick with a bow tie when wearing a tuxedo.

Wear a Tuxedo Shirt

Have you noticed the kind of shirt most men wear with a tuxedo?

It is called a tuxedo shirt, and they are great clothing accessory for men.

Tuxedo shirts have a pleated bib, making them a little more dimensional than regular men's dress shirts, which can make a man's tuxedo outfit more interesting. They also tend to be tailored. This makes the shirt fit a lot tighter and appear nicer.

Wear a Tuxedo that is Unique

One criticism that could be said against tuxedos is that they are a little boring. They are (usually) black and white and fitted perfectly for your body. The best way to counteract this is to have a tuxedo suit jacket that is unique to you.

Nathon Kong wants you to feel good when you wear your cloths, both in how they fit and emotionally. Each suit jacket and fashion accessory we make incorporates an exclusive artwork that each tell a different story.
