Formalwear has gone high fashion, and there are more options than ever before when it comes to creating a tastefully distinctive look for your wedding day. Even if you avoid malls like the plague, this is one time you might actually have fun shopping, especially if you take your fiancée along for the ride, which is highly recommended. Cummerbund or vest? Pattern or solid? Bowtie, four-in-hand, or cravat? The experts can help you select an outfit that’s appropriate for the season, for the wedding style, and for you!

The groom is responsible for selecting not only his own attire, but also that of the groomsmen. Be sure you and your attendants get personally fitted if at all possible, and that every member of your wedding entourage tries on his tuxedo well in advance – and absolutely no later than two days before the ceremony – to allow for corrections and alterations. Don’t forget that everyone will need the right shoes, and please, no white socks!
