Life is more fun in a tux! But how to wear one? For everyone's sake avoid rental tuxedos, they will never look good on you. A black tuxedo will never go out of style but the midning blue are making a comeback. Regarding the collar of a tuxedo, peak lapels and shawl collars are the only acceptable options, whether single or double breasted. Wear a pocket square, idealy cut from white cotton or linen, but some gentlemen get away with a red or burgundy one. The bow tie should preferably be a self tied piece to assure a sophisticated appearance. At last, avoid to match your tuxedo or associated accessories with the attire of your date, no matter what your date says.
