Frequently Asked Questions

A black shawl lapel tuxedo is a distinct tuxedo style that features a continuous curve on its lapel, differentiating itself from peaked or notched lapels. The shawl lapel is a throwback to vintage style, showcasing simplicity and refined elegance; these days, this style is having a major resurgence while remaining a unique option.

The black tuxedo with a shawl lapel showcases a smooth, rounded line that extends from the neck down to the single button closure of the jacket. This design provides a more streamlined look compared to other lapel styles. The black tuxedo shawl lapel is commonly paired with more formal evening wear accessories, emphasizing its luxe and sophisticated appeal.

Anyone hoping to capture timelessness and a sharp fashion sense at formal events will do well to choose a black shawl lapel tuxedo. Given its more vintage roots, it's especially appropriate for those looking to infuse a touch of classic charm into their ensemble, and it can give a special feel, as it's less common compared to a notch lapel.

The shawl lapel is versatile, flattering virtually any frame and height. It has also been embraced in various contemporary interpretations and colors to complement a number of formal occasions and events. In addition to this black tuxedo with a shawl lapel, we also offer a navy shawl lapel tuxedo.

For events like weddings, particularly those adhering to a black-tie wedding style, the black tuxedo with shawl lapel can be a distinguished choice.

Black tuxedos with shawl lapels are often considered slightly more formal than standard notch lapel tuxedos and especially a step up in formality from a suit. The simplicity and unbroken line of the shawl lapel lend it an elegance that's perfectly suited for black-tie events and other formal occasions. While peak lapel black tuxedos are also deemed especially formal and are traditional for black-tie events, shawl lapels offer a slightly different aesthetic, bringing in an old-school meets trending charm.

Keep in mind that the formality of a tuxedo isn't determined by the lapel style alone. Other factors, like the quality of the fabric, the fit, the accompanying tuxedo accessories, and the overall ensemble, play their own roles. For example, while a white shawl lapel tuxedo is a trendy and standout choice, it may not be as formal or appropriate for some environments–like weddings that are not your own–compared to its black counterpart, even with the same lapel style.

The fit of a men's black shawl lapel tuxedo is paramount. It should fit somewhat snugly to the body but not tight to the point of restriction. The shoulders of the jacket should lie flat, with the seam on the shoulder's edge. The jacket's length should hit right middle of the seat, and when buttoned, it shouldn't pull across the chest.

The sleeve length is crucial as well. When the arms are at a rest, the sleeves should end around the wrist bone, allowing about a half-inch of the shirt to peek beneath. Tuxedo pants should sit comfortably around the waist and drape over the legs with room for movement but without any bagginess.

Always try on your tuxedo well before the event, giving ample time for any adjustments and alterations if desired. Ensure you pair it with classy dress shoes and appropriate accessories to complete the look.
