How To Wear A Suit This Thanksgiving

Tags : 

Wearing a suit to any family or formal gathering is a great idea: it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed. 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, coworkers, 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 turtle neck 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.
  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. This can be worn with a festive-colored dress shirt (with or without 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. 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.

    Don’t wear this. Ever.

5 Celebrity Transformations: Suits Vs. Street Clothes

Tags : 

Robert Downey Jr.

downeyThere’s almost nothing that can make this man look bad. Even when he isn’t Iron Man, he’s still basically Tony Stark. Throw a suit on him and he could pass as a business professional, philanthropist, and lady killer. No suit and he still looks awesome, but he could just as easily be working out or working on someone’s car. While his suit selection is sometimes wild and unusual, the classic black and white or blue and white will always be a classic. Even in a suit he lets his personality shine through and doesn’t often take himself too seriously.

Usherusher

Here is another man that never looks bad. Some may say that Usher in a shirt and Usher in a suit are equally attractive, and most women would wholeheartedly agree. Not all of us look amazing shirtless, but most men do look great in a suit, and our friend Usher is proof of that. Jeans and a casual button-down shirt versus a suit shows a world of difference. The man can even look amazing with a bow-tie that hasn’t been tied. Proof that men can look smooth and fresh even while dancing in their best suit.

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Kimmelkimmel and timberlake

We have a picture of both Timberlake and Jimmy Kimmel because lately, they seem to be an amazing pair. Between Timberlake’s music career and Kimmel’s talk show and comedy, they could continue to be a fantastic duo. These two men are handsome, funny, smart, and seem to be very down to earth guys who can laugh at themselves. Put them in street clothes and they could pass for old college buddies at a bar or reunion, but put them in suits and they look like a power house team that belongs on television. Maybe there’s a reason Jimmy Kimmel is usually seen in suits. Justin Timberlake, like some other men we’ve talked about today, almost never looks bad but in a suit you can tell he is no longer the little guy in N*Sync but he’s a grown man with grown stuff to do.

Ellen Degeneres

ellenThis funny lady is proof that anyone can pull off a suit, or at least some suit pieces. She’s often seen wearing more of a men’s style suit than the classic women’s “pant suit,” and it’s become somewhat of a signature look for the comedian. On her show she often wears sweaters, sweater vests, jeans, or a suit vest but some could argue a full suit looks amazing on her. Even with a pair of sneakers on the look is flawless. Maybe it’s the short hair and the thin body type, but Ellen is not the dress type, but she sure can turn heads when she gets dressed up for an award show or a photo shoot.

What we’re trying to say here is: you may not be a celebrity, but even celebrities look better in suits (or at least suit pieces) so come by Rose Tuxedo for all of your suit rental and purchase needs to start looking like the movie star or musician you want to be!

Embrace Fall With Suits

Tags : 

It’s been officially Fall for a few days now, and styles for you gentlemen will be changing rapidly. This week we’ll discuss some tips for dressing for the season and some new trends popping up in men’s suits.

Things that never change:

  1. Suits (that fit) will always look great.
  2. Slim fit, two-buttoned suits are always in.
  3. Don’t be afraid to try new things.

What to expect this season:

The one-button suit is becoming somewhat popular again. Collars are beginning to follow the peaking fashion while getting bigger with new textures breaking through. Suit-wearers are looking for staying warm and looking great, so tweed, wool, and cashmere are coming back to keep gentlemen comfortable. These re-emerging fabrics lead to increased texture which can add thickness and detail for an intriguing look.

                Despite the added bulk of suits, shirts, and pants, suits for fall are expected to be slim fitting but are likely to lean towards vintage cuts. These slim and vintage cuts will come close to the body so the added bulk of material does not have our men looking heavy and uncomfortable—movement is key. A slim fit may sound scary, but when tailored correctly you’ll look like a million bucks! Step out of your comfort zone a little and try something new (you can always opt to rent a suit before you buy one).The third piece of the adored three-piece-suit may make a comeback this fall, added warmth and a change-up of style.

Colors will be changing slightly. Showing up in bright floral colors will be replaced with darker hues and more colors resembling the changing leaves. The earth is changing, and so is a gentleman’s expected attire. Bold patterns with floral accents will not be shunned, but solid colors will make a clearer statement. The subtle switch from stripes to solids may make change your fall look drastically. Don’t show up to a Fall wedding in Summer colors; look like the classy man you are and trade that powder blue in for a brown or orange or some green. In a few months the trees will be renewed with fresh green leaves and you can bring back your bright colors but for now, take some notes from nature.

As a reminder, Rose Tuxedo is here for all of your suit and tuxedo rentals (and purchases). Our amazing associates will help you pick out the right color, fit, and style for your next big shindig or your brother’s wedding. Rent a tuxedo for that random event or start adding stylish pieces to your wardrobe you can wear year after year. Women’s fashion tends to change every season and there are few repeats between last fall and this fall, but lucky for you men, you can always invest in the classics and still look trendy, classy, and handsome.

How to Get the Most Out of a Suit

Tags : 

After a little research, anyone can figure out when it’s appropriate or expected to wear either a suit or a tuxedo. Many, however, do not fully comprehend the usefulness of a complete tuxedo or suit within a wardrobe. For example, one three-piece suit in a basic color (Black or charcoal gray for example) can be used in at least six different ways, such as:

  1. All 3 pieces: This is a strong, bold look, especially when paired with attention grabbing colors like reds or burgundy. The tie and pocket square should match, or at the very least be of similar shades. Black leather belt and shoes in great condition, accompanied by a black leather briefcase or a style of bag make great additions. Maybe even add a watch with black leather, or metallic for an extra-noticeable statement.
  2. Two (main) pieces: Wearing the jacket and pants (accompanied with a long tie and collared shirt) is timeless. It makes a less bold statement than the three-piece variety, but it still commands respect and attention when all pieces fit properly with matching accessories. Accessories can be colorful, while others prefer a black-and-white look head-to-toe.
  3. Vest and pants: This look is classy, stylish, and vastly under-used. The vest or waistcoat should fit closer to the body than the jacket, so it may need extra tailoring or close attention to the adjuster in the back(especially when worn sans jacket). This look has a tendency to make a man look slimmer. One possible downside to this look is the attention which must be paid to the shirt. Color, cut, and condition must all be noted, and all accessories must compliment the shirt and vest. When in doubt, white shirt with black suit-pieces never fails. This look can be completed with bow ties (or long ties, but who doesn’t love a good bow tie?), a pocket watch chain, patterned socks, and leather shoes.
  4. Waistcoat without suit jacket or pants: This is one huge reason men should invest in a good three-piece suit. Throw on a dark wash jean, loafers or semi-dressy shoes, a semi-casual collared long sleeve shirt, and a tie can make any man look fantastic. This is great for those nights out on the town without looking over-dressed but reminding everyone how amazingly stylish you are. The glory of this idea is that comfortable jeans can be paired with any color or pattern of shirt (or tie), because a black vest will go with nearly anything. Dress it up, or dress it down, but always leave the bottom button unfastened.
  5. Jacket only, leave the slacks and vest behind: This look can be done in so many ways. A great fitting suit jacket can class up any outfit, even jeans and a t-shirt. Test out different materials for pants and add a nice pocket square or handkerchief for a dash of color and fun. No need for a tie and fancy watches or clips, leave it a little on the casual side and impress everyone around you.
  6. Pants only: A good pair of slacks can be worn with nearly anything. Take that jacket off and put a sweater or a sweater vest over that boring collared shirt and enjoy casual Friday at the office! Throw in your brown loafers if you feel a little crazy—just be sure to pair something else with brown tones in to bring the entire outfit together. Have fun with colors and patterns and materials. Who said wearing slacks is boring?

There’s no reason not to own a three-piece suit. If you don’t believe us, come by and rent one for a few days and play around with the other elements in your closet. Once you realize how amazing you look and how great everyone else thinks you look, you’ll come back begging for us to help you pick out at least one three-piece suit of your own!

Ladies! How To Convince Him To Wear a Tux or Suit!

Tags : 

How many women have tried to get their men to dress appropriately to an event only for them to whine long enough to force you to let them wear their slacks and ill-fitted sports coat? Men can be very stubborn, we all know this. Today we’ll discuss how to get your man to wear something proper.

  1. If he cares about you, he’ll do anything for you. Let him know how much it would mean to you for him to wear a suit or tux (depending on the event). Don’t get pushy or whiney, but be confident in your decision. Tell him how handsome he’ll look and that you wouldn’t mind a little arm candy at your sister’s wedding. A little ego-stroking can go a long way.
  2. Be subtle. If you blatantly tell him that his current suit doesn’t fit or isn’t appropriate for the event there’s a chance he’ll just get mad or defensive or he’ll just get generally hurt. Let him know how great he’d look in something different. “You’d look great in this suit,” is more effective than “you can’t wear the suit from your high school graduation, you’re 30.”
  3. Don’t be pushy. When he’s eventually trying on proper attire, let him know what looks good. When he’s trying things on, don’t be afraid to let him try on something you didn’t pick out. He may know his physically attractive traits better than you think and he may surprise you by picking out the best suit in the place. While he is probably perfectly capable of picking out a good suit (especially with help from the associates in the store) he will appreciate your help, honesty, and compliments. Try on different things, but don’t force 12 different suit-jackets on him in the dressing room.
  4. Give in a little.If you want him to wear a tuxedo but he honestly doesn’t care for them, it won’t be the end of the world to let him pick out a wonderful suit. If he doesn’t want to wear a bow tie, you won’t burst into flames if he picks out a matching neck tie. If he truly doesn’t want his shirt or tie to match your shoes and sash, maybe decide on a classic black/white combo or something that compliments your attire.
  5. Don’t be afraid of getting it tailored. Many rental places will help create a custom-fit for a suit or tux and anything you purchase can be altered as much as you want. Every man is built differently so if there’s something that doesn’t quite fit perfectly, it can be easily fixed. If the funds are available, take your man to a tailor to ask about custom-made pieces. He will feel like a million bucks because the piece or entire outfit is literally made for him, and who doesn’t like feeling special?
  6. Baby steps. If it’s his first time dressing in such attire, don’t throw him in the deep end. Start small. If you don’t need the entire outfit immediately, start with trying on a couple different outfits or maybe even piece-by-piece over a period of time. Don’t be afraid to let him explore on his own.
  7. He is not a child. He is a grown man who should be able to figure out what looks best on him. Chances are, he was reluctant because he doesn’t want to spend money or he doesn’t realize how big of a deal the event is. Let him know respectfully your thoughts on the matter and he should realize how important said attire is and be eager to please and look his best, no matter the cost.

If money is an issue, rent the tux. If money isn’t an issue, rent the tux. Renting a tuxedo or suit is never a bad idea. Rose Tuxedo offers too many styles to count and if you like what you rent, you can buy it (or at least something close, and definitely something you can get tailored).
