Making sure you look Lux in your Tux

That tired old Tuxedo that gets dragged out of mothballs at this time, every year and you utter those same words every time, “I think I just might get another year out of this”. NO ! Step away from the wardrobe and drop that outdated look into the recycling. You’re a man of stature and style and worth so much more than that.

Tuxedos are no longer, just a suit that sits at the back of your wardrobe and gets an outing once, maybe twice a year if its lucky. The Dinner suit is a genuinely versatile piece of equipment that can be utilised in a number of ways for the modern man. Of course it can be worn in a traditional fashion with a dress shirt and a bow or straight tie. But, it’s so much more than this, wear the dinner jacket with a pair of black denim jeans to really contemporise this outfit. Invest in a different coloured tux like navy or grey or maybe a velvet dinner jacket to really give a festive lux feel to your style.

Lets give you some food for thought and a little inspiration for those formal outings over the Yuletide period, that will ensure your far more Lord of the Manor than inherited your Granddad’s Clothes.
