BUTTON YOUR JACKET!
During a fitting, make sure you button your jacket. If it produces a very defined hour glass shape, the coat may be too tight. If it looks ‘boxy,’ it may be too big. No matter whether you are slim, stocky or muscular, a properly fitted jacket will taper just slightly at the waist.
HOW MANY BUTTONS SHOULD BE BUTTONED?
You should never button all of the buttons on your tuxedo coat! As a general rule, you should leave the bottom button undone. This rule applies if you are wearing a two, three, four or five button coat. If you’re wearing a one button style, however, you should button the one button!
PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR SHOULDERS…
The shoulder padding of your tuxedo jacket should not extend beyond the tip of your shoulders and hang down your arm. If so, your jacket is too big! Conversely, if a significant crease or roll appears below the jacket collar in back, your jacket may be too small. Check out more great fit tips from Jim’s Formal Wear

THE CLASSIC TUX
Since the 19th Century in the resort town of Tuxedo Park, the tux has been the key component of formalwear. It’s similar to a suit, but with a couple important differences: satin or grosgrain lapels (shawl or peak) and trouser stripes that contrast with the base fabric, and killer buttons (usually satin like the lapel). Tuxes are typically black, but they don’t have to be. A traditional tux is one of the easy options—but still one of many, as you’ll see ahead.
THE TUXEDO SHIRT
Tuxedo shirts (or formal or dinner shirts) have come a long way from their original, extremely starched state. Still, the front panel (the part you see from under the jacket) comes with an extra panel of cotton for added opacity, sometimes with pleats. Or if you’re really bold—or just arrived from 1976—ruffles.
First used by English officers as an easy alternative to the waistcoat, it has become an essential piece. It creates a smooth line at your belly, it keeps your shirt tucked in, it looks damn fine with a bow tie, and it catches crumbs. Though a lot of guys don’t wear them anymore, true black tie calls for either a cummerbund or a vest (unless you’re wearing a double-breasted tux). No shirt should be visible beneath the button of your dinner jacket. Discover more Groom fashion compliments of Esquire

2017 Celebrity Tuxedo Fashion from the Golden Globes
The Golden Globes are a night to dress up and keep your look classic. This year the best dressed celebrity men went with neutral tuxedos like navy, gray, black and white. We saw mostly black bow ties which is always a “do.” Our favorite look du jour is a charcoal coat with a black lapel and black pants. It’s a little fashion forward but works next to any color dress, and when your date is a silver screen starlet, you need to compliment her couture gown! Having said that, our style winner of the night is Ryan Gossling who went Old Hollywood Classic with his white dinner jacket, black bow tie and black pants. Learn more from Friar Tux
