Which Tuxedo for Which Body Type?

Most tuxedos will fit most body types properly . . . as long as it is sized right. There are just a few tuxedos that are particularly suited for particular guys. So here’s the rundown:

1-button tuxedos – most traditional styling. Quite mature, always appropriate, shows the most of your vest or cummerbund.

2-button tuxedos – a step more fashionable than a 1 button, but clearly in the traditional vein.

3-button (or more) tuxedos – now you’re stepping out into fashion clothing. Keep in mind, fashions come and fashions go. While it looks very sharp today (and likely for the next 4 or 5 years), it will eventually look like yesterday’s news.

Peak lapels – as classic as can be. The first tuxedo was a one-button, peak lapel style and peak lapels continue to be the traditionalist's favorite.

Notch lapels – by far the most popular style with over 90% of the sales.

Shawl collars – another very traditional choice. Fit alert – shawl collars tend to exaggerate round bodies. If you are already a big guy you may consider shying away from this style tuxedo in favor of a peak or notch lapel.

Adolfo Tuxedos are designed for a very fit man. Exacting tailoring provides a stunning profile . . . along with a higher and smaller armhole. If you are in good physical shape you’ll be mistaken for Mr. Bond, James Bond. However, if you’re carrying a few extra pounds in your midsection we would suggest a different garment.

Hickey Freeman tuxedos are very classic in design. Rather than slim like the Adolfo or oversized like the Hugo Boss, Hickey Freeman’s cut is right up the middle. Slightly padded shoulders, some waist suppression, a gentleman’s tuxedo.

The rest of our tuxedos are quite typical in cut and styling and will likely fit you just fine.
