Suit vs. Tux
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SUIT AND TUXEDO
The primary physical difference between a tuxedo and a suit is the presence of satin. Typically tuxedos have satin facing on buttons and the most noticeable part a tux, the Lapels.
Since the inception of men’s fashion for formal, casual or business wear, consumers have been bullied into two impractical options, renting or owning a tuxedo.
Consumers in need of a tuxedo for special events have been forced to spend hundreds to thousands of dollars buying a tuxedo or renting a tuxedo. Many people know they won’t get much use out of tuxedo which in turn will just sit and collect dust in their closet. Renting an ill-fitting and unhygienic tuxedo for 24 hours for an event, does not make sense. We as individuals don’t wear used clothing to go to the gym, why would we wear them to the most important days of our lives. Let it be for your first formal, prom or even your own wedding.
