21 Dec Our Tuxedo Department Is All About the Groom
ZZ Top said it best: Every Girl’s Crazy Bout a Sharp-Dressed Man. We totally agree here at New York Bride & Groom. We want the groom and groomsmen to look their dapper best for the wedding, which is why we are a one-stop wedding salon with a dedicated tuxedo rental department that’s filled with stunning suits. For example, take the one shown in our featured photo:
Calvin Klein, style Radnor: A classic choice for a black-tie affair. Tailored in soft, luxurious Super 100’s wool. Satin notch lapels and satin-covered buttons add to the understated elegance of this ensemble, making it a perfect choice for formal and semi-formal occasions. Complete the look with matching pleated or flat front trousers. More details at Jim’s Formal Wear
We carry top designers, including Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Andrew Fezza, Stephen Geoffrey, Perry Ellis, Tony Bowls, Jean Yves, Michael Kors and more. You don’t order based on a picture in a catalog or online and then hope for the best. We have a sample of every suit style in stock so you can try it on and check the color and material. You know what you’re getting when you place a rental order with us.
Michael Kors, style Berkeley: A classic tux with an updated fit. The Berkeley tuxedo is tailored in lightweight Venetian Super 130’s wool for the ultimate fit and feel with understated design details, including a narrow grosgrain notch lapel, matching buttons, and grosgrain-trimmed double besom pockets. Complete the look with matching modern slim fit pants with grosgrain piping on the leg. See more at Jim’s Formal Wear
Tuxedos have a fascinating history. The following informative posts will give you a good accounting of men’s black-tie fashion.
Remarkably, the greatest chapter in the history of evening wear – and arguably menswear in general – is the era marked by the Great Depression. At a time of extreme financial hardship for so many, the wealthy elite maintained an after-six wardrobe that was not only elegant but sometimes downright decadent. In 1935 a New York Herald Tribune society writer calculated that a “well-attired” New York gentleman’s evening kit could be worth as much as $4,975 once his jewelry and fur coat were accounted for, the equivalent of a staggering $80,000 today. It was this glamorous lifestyle that Hollywood capitalized upon when catering to mainstream America’s desire for inexpensive escapism and in the process elevated the tailcoat and tuxedo to iconic status.

This one is from Vanity Fair:
Soon after its “invention,” in 1886, the tuxedo became the ne plus ultra of formal male attire, and little has changed since. See more at Vanity Fair
