How to Properly Fit a Tux

July 21, 2020 2:10 pm Published by

Renting a tux can be an easy process if you know all your measurements and understand how it should fit. If you don’t, that’s what the specialists at DC Tux are here for! Renting a tux right off the rack without alterations is difficult to do if you want it to fit properly. Don’t be afraid to have us get you tailored and fitted according to your body. All men are created equal, but that doesn’t mean we can all wear the same suit size. We can tailor your hems on coats and pants. But we carry a wide variety of fits in store that you will fit properly in one of them!

Pants

A good pant fit is imperative for the rest of the ensemble. The pant will tie it all together from the tux jacket to the socks and shoes. A one inch break is the most classic fit. If you are looking for a modern look, there are some men who are choosing to show a little ankle or sock. The hem is much higher and can showcase the fun designed or colored socks.

Buttons

A rule of thumb is the top button of a two-button or the middle of a three-button tux should never be below your belly button. When it comes to your buttons and which should and shouldn’t be buttoned, there are ways that are appropriate, and you should follow. Three button tuxes: Sometimes, Always, Never. Two button suit: Always, Never.

Length

When your arms are at rest on your sides, your knuckles should line up with the bottom of your jacket. As trends come and go, there will be exceptions for all fits and styles. However, this is just a standard rule that has been followed for years.
