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.

Get Quinceañera Tuxedos at Rose Tuxedo

Tags : 

Quinceañera celebration marks the day a girl turns 15. On this day, the world stops for her. All eyes are on her and she is the princess of that day. Also called fiesta de quince años, fiesta de quinceañera, quince años or simply quince, this is the celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday in parts of Arizona communities of people from Latin America. This birthday is celebrated differently from any other birthday, as it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood.

Quinceañera Tuxedos

To a Quinceañera you don’t dress the same as you would to any other birthday party.  Girls typically wear colored dresses and the guy’s sport tuxedos with matching vest and tie.  Of course the father of the birthday girl usually wears a tuxedo and vest that matches the young woman’s Mothers gown. Pedrino’s, or an influential uncle, Grandfather or other man in the young woman’s life, typically dress in tuxedos as well.
Because so many men wear tuxedos to a Quinceañera and come from neighboring Phoenix cities like Glendale, Peoria, Avondale, Surprise and Tolleson, it’s easier to use a Formal wear Specialist with multiple locations to serve all the men and boys formal needs.
