Consider going for Thanksgiving in this Garment

Tags : 

Thanksgiving Garment

We all know the stories about the First Thanksgiving and the Pilgrims and we all recognize the attire worn by those early settlers like the Pilgrims. Today we’ll look at just how far fashion has come and been thankful no one (hopefully) shows up to Thanksgiving dinner dressed like this guy (see Left).

Traditional Thanksgiving Garment

Traditional Thanksgiving Garment

To start with, a Pilgrim man often wore a felt hat (with a buckle in some interpretations). The next easily noticeable accouterment is the Ruff. It looks much like the variations of ruffles and large white collars worn throughout history, mostly in paintings of royalty. This would get covered I gravy so fast, it wouldn’t be funny (ok, it would be) if worn today.

Slightly less awkward and odd is the doublet cuffs. This is a fairly typical jacket of the time (also for quite some time before and after the Pilgrims) and it could be compared to a waistcoat or suit jacket. Some pilgrims also wore a vest and a long sleeved shirt if not the doublet.

Further down the body, we find the Breeches, garters, stocking, and shoes . These breeches look silly by today’s standards but they obviously looked good to the Pilgrim women. While there are few comparisons between this style of pants and today’s modern suit pants, at least the color of the pants and jackets matched (with the shoes , too!), making the men look well put together. Today, men wear solid color jackets, shoes, and pants to the actual ankle, leaving the stockings to the women.

Suit and Tuxedo history…

While the history of the suit and tuxedo is long and convoluted, we can still see some similarities to the traditional pilgrim garb. Wearing a suit to Thanksgiving dinner will make you look and feel good, but it can also be a history lesson. Impress the friends and family (and in-laws) by comparing your suit pieces to the good ol’ fashioned Pilgrim attire.

Consider going in the traditional Native American Thanksgiving Suit this year

If you don’t want to go the suit route (because gravy on your best suit, tie, or shirt is a definite no-go) then consider dressing closer to a traditional Native American the Pilgrims may have contacted (see Right). Replace the deerskin mantle with a suede shirt or jacket and the deerskin leggings with jeans or corduroy. Also, tie a piece of twine around your leg for the legging tie. You can also pick up a pair of moccasins at any number of shoe stores. As with a shell or leather necklace. Don’t forget a nice turkey feather accessory to keep it extra festive! If you must have some sort of fur robe for maximum authenticity, shop around for just any faux fur scraps. As for the knife, make it functional and bring your own turkey carving knife—festive and functional!

We’ve got you covered

No matter what you choose, keep Rose Tuxedo in mind for all of your holiday attire needs. There isn’t a man alive who doesn’t look better in a high quality, well-fitting suit.

4 Ways to Wear a Suit to Thanksgiving this Year

Tags : 

Wearing a suit to any family or formal gathering is a great idea. It’s better to be overdressed than under-dressed. If you have no clue what to wear to your own Thanksgiving family dinner or to the home of your spouse, girlfriend, or best friend you can never go wrong with a suit. If you know a suit will come across as snooty or obnoxious you could always dress it down.

Or ignore the haters and wear it anyway because you look amazing in that suit, sir. Much like our post in September about the different ways to utilize a three-piece suit, you don’t always have to wear the full classic suit. You can use the pieces to your advantage and look your best and use the same suit for several Thanksgiving Weekend events.

Here are some ways to wear your best suit to any Thanksgiving event this November.

1. Full suit

Reserve this for impressing in-laws, bosses, co-workers, or strangers. Gravy is messy and you may spill something. If you wear a brown suit, gravy may not be a problem. Stick to earth tones with some accents matching the color-changing leaves. Maybe avoid the three-piece suit here and stick to slacks and jacket.

2. Slacks and Vest

This look is always flattering and looks much more relaxed than a three-piece suit. It could be paired with a long tie or bowtie in colors matching the food or leaves of fall. Roll up your shirt sleeves and add some patterned socks with your loafers. Keep is casual but clean. Gravy-color clothes will only take you so far.

3. Slacks and Sweater

This doesn’t technically require owning or renting a suit, but the right slacks are important. Pair a nice pair of slacks, a collared shirt, and a festive vest to look casual but put together. Keep the turkey turtleneck at home and stick to a sweater vest or V-neck sweater with an autumn color pallet. Reserve the tacky sweater for sitting at home eating your leftovers with your wife or girlfriend.

Don’t wear this. Ever.

 

4. Jeans and Vest or Jacket

For those family members and friends you’re more comfortable with, pair a nice suit jacket or vest with a clean, straight leg dark wash jean—no holes. You can wear this with a festive-colored dress shirt (with or without a tie) with the suit jacket or a plaid button-down with the suit vest. The combinations are endless. Just keep it neat and leave the elastic waistbands at home. No one needs to see that.

5. Utilize your boring business brown suit

Browns work great for Thanksgiving. Tweed, wool, or blends will look great. Pair it with a pop of color to grab some attention. If you arrive at a holiday party and you’re overdressed, you can always remove a layer and roll up your sleeves or remove your tie.

If you’re underdressed, put the jacket back on and straighten your tie. But if you are unsure of what attire the party will require, Put on a two-piece suit with a sweater and you should realize quickly what layers to shed. Or, simply ask. It never hurts.

Tuxedo Rentals: What You Should Know

Tags : 

You’ve got a special occasion coming up and as a man, you want to look sharp and classy. Tuxedos are your best bet. Nothing says smart, elegant, stately and refined like an exquisite tuxedo.

Tuxedos should be your choice. What do you? Buy one or rent it from a tuxedo rental shop instead? Our advice will be that you rent it, it’s more economical that way. But if you’re sure you’re going to be repeating the tuxedo, buying it is better. But remember wedding tuxedo styles change every year so renting tuxedos maybe the way to go. For sure when it comes to Groomsmen Tuxedos rentals, keep them the same.

 

If you’re going to be renting a tuxedo, there are a few points you need to know before you set out to acquire one.

You’ll need to have an idea of the kind of tuxedo you want. A visit to a tuxedo rental store to know your choices will be a  smart move. If you’re going to be renting tuxedos, the number you’ll need is also relevant.

Your measurements will have to be taken at the tuxedo shop. This process is critical so you’re not rented a tuxedo that won’t fit.

The next thing to do is to get measurements at the tuxedo shop. This only takes a few minutes and does not require an appointment. Rose tuxedo has your wedding tuxedos for groom and groomsmen.

Tuxedo have in their employ highly trained staff who are more than happy to take a quick measurement. Everyone who needs a tuxedo will need to come in for a measurement. You should never attempt to take your own measurement for this. If someone in your party lives out of state and is unable to come into our tuxedo shops, other tuxedo shops will be happy to take measurements either for free or a small fee.

Everyone in the party should look the same. That means items like the overcoat, vest, pants, ties, and shoes should match. Occasionally the father of the bride or the groom might have a slight variation in their outfit to set them apart, but everyone else should look exactly the same. This is why it is very important to rent shoes along with the tuxedo in order to maintain consistency. Rose Tuxedo will help you with your mens wedding suit ideas.

When it is time to pick up the tuxedo, it is best to try it on at the shop prior to leaving. While most of the time there isn’t any problem, however, you do not want to find out at the last minute that your tuxedo doesn’t fit. Mens wedding suits rentals has never been so easy, don’t stress we got this.

Finally, you will need to return the items when you are done using them. Make sure the tuxedos are clean and not damaged. Also be sure to return all of the accessories that came with the tuxedo. If the tuxedo shop is a chain then it should be okay to return a suit to a more convenient location if needed. Otherwise be sure to make arrangements with someone you trust to return the tuxedo.

Lo recomendable es que la elección sea tu color favorito. También puedes guiarte por las estaciones y usar telas en colores pasteles durante la primavera; colores cálidos como el amarillo, naranja, verde y fucsia en el verano y colores más dramáticos durante el otoño e invierno. Los vestidos de la quinceañera deben ser vaporosos y pueden ser de diferentes estilos como:

De gala: No es solo el típico vestido del cuento de hadas, sino también la opción más común.

Linea A: Se caracteriza por un corpiño ajustado y una falta parecida a la letra “A” mayúscula y se ve muy bien en todos los tipos de cuerpo.

Línea “A” modificado: Muy similar al estilo de línea “A”, pero con una falda que se extiende más allá de las caderas.

Trompeta: Este estilo se entalla al cuerpo hasta la mitad del muslo, luego su falda se ensancha hasta formar una figura similar a la de una trompeta.

Sirena: La falda de este vestido se entalla al cuerpo hasta las rodillas y a partir de allí comienza su vuelo.

Vaina: Este estilo no cuenta con cintura y se amolda al cuerpo desde el cuello hasta la parte inferior del vestido.

Falda de té: Recibe este nombre gracias a la longitud de su falda que termina entre la rodilla y los tobillos.

Mini: Este estilo es perfecto para los cuerpos menuditos pues la longitud de la falda de este vestido termina por encima de las rodillas.

Make no mistake. We aren’t talking about pairing a good looking pair of glossy shoes with Grandpa’s tired old wedding tux. Let that one stay hidden away in the attic. There are many more choices for men now than the classic black and white. Sleek grey suits with vests that match your girl’s outfit are popular choices right now. Navy sport coats paired with matching pants and a colorful tie make a bold statement. Of course, there is nothing wrong with opting for the timeless black and white tuxedo. Patent leather shoes go with all of these choices and more.

Whether you wear a Perry Ellis or Raffinatti tuxedo or a Zoot Suit, the most important thing about men’s formalwear is that it matches your personality and your personal style. Anything else will make you feel awkward at a time when you want to be on top of your game. When you look good, you feel good. It really is as simple as that.
