Tuxedo Jackets

When people hear or see the word tuxedo their first assumption is usually that of a tuxedo set. Meaning that a tuxedo as a whole includes both a tuxedo jacket and coordinating tuxedo pants. And most of us are not wrong. However, tuxedo jackets can be purchased and worn separately. 

A good way to know whether a dinner or tuxedo jacket is considered a separate is to look and see if it is included in a separates program. What is a separates program you ask? Well, tuxedo jackets, like the BT Collections "Sebastian" Indigo Pindot that are in the separates program meaning that this jacket is able to be purchased in any size and with your choice of pants. This is a commonality as more bold patterned and colored tuxedo jackets tend to be paired best with a coordinating solid colored tuxedo pant.

Tuxedo jackets typically come in a wide range of different colors, styles, patterns and materials allowing the individual to find exactly what they are looking for. They are available in both modern fit and slim fit options so that you can find the perfect fit in the most flattering style for your specific body type. When finding your perfect fit, some important things to remember is to keep it appropriate, comfortable and stylish. So, as most tuxedo jackets have either one or two buttons, being able to button your jacket without it pulling or being to tight is important. Having the shoulders not be too baggy or provide too much space is important for appearance too. 

Whether you're wearing your tuxedo jacket to a wedding, black tie event, gala, dinner or simply just because, pairing it with accessories, like a necktie or bow tie, cufflinks and studs, a vest or cummerbund and a coordinating pocket square to complete the look. Tuxedo jackets are great for formal weddings or parties as they come in so many different forms that having your groom and groomsmen wearing matching tuxes with coordinating accessories will make a stand out group that will look absolutely dapper in pictures.

Types of Tuxedo Jackets
Like most things, there are different styles and types of tuxedo jackets. The differences are mainly within the fit, but also in the type of lapel. There are three main lapel styles that you will find on a tuxedo jacket: notch, peak and shawl. Notch lapels showcase a folded over a flap on the front edges of the jacket and sewn together with the collar to great a notch lapel. They are extremely common with suits and tuxedos as they can be worn in both formal, business casual, or semi-formal instances. A great example of a peak lapel tuxedo jacket is the "Hartford" Black Tuxedo Jacket.

A peak lapel is the next kind of tuxedo jacket lapel and extremely popular lapel and jacket option for more formal events. The lapels point upward at the seam and give a "peaking" upward appearance. The "Milan" Black Tuxedo Jacket is a perfect example of a peak lapel tuxedo jacket. It is timeless, classic, stylish and formal. 

The last, but certainly not least is the shawl lapel collar. A shawl lapel has a rounded shaped lapel and is a custom formal tuxedo and dinner jacket. Shawl lapels are a modern take on a classic style and very popular with black tie events. It's a sleek and traditional way to give an overall impressive appearance. The perfect example for a shawl lapel is the "Rio" Black Tuxedo Jacket

Buying Tuxedo Jackets
Tuxedo jackets are an item that sometimes come few and far between when being worn. Since they are commonly worn for formal events and situations, they don't get as much love as a suit or blazer might get. But, they are great pieces that will go a long way and can be styled and worn for different events in a variety of different ways.
