Tip #1: Shoulder fit is crucial

Tip #2: Put on a bowtie and be sure to know how to tie your own knot

Tip #3: Take a good measurement of your neck

Tip #4: In a Standard two-button suit, the break should be at your belly button

Tip #5: Shirts feel better with a taper

Tip #6: The half inch rule on the cuff is a must

Tip #7: Pant legs should have a modest break on the toe

Tip #8: No cuff on tuxedo trousers

Tip #9: Avoid lots of detail on the shoes

Tip #10: A simple steel watch with black leather strap is best

There are of course ways to show a bit of individuality or make a statement. One can be with the shoes you pair with the ensemble, like the Ralph Lauren loafers this wedding party chose. Of course, the bow tie is a great opportunity to try something different, and pocket squares becoming the hottest accessory- we like these by Ramply & Co.
