This is a very popular question that we hear all the time in the Tuxedo Rental Business at Rose Tuxedo in Phoenix AZ, and there’s never an easy answer. How ever, there are some things to think about when you are trying to decide. For years the Bow Tie was the most popular choice because there were only Cummerbunds and a long tie does not go along with that, then came the Vest about 15 years ago, and when that took place everything changed. You can now wear the Bow Tie and Long necktie for both. The long tie could now tuck into the Vest where as before it was only worn with the suit look. The Tuxedo coat style can help with the decision also, if it’s a high cut coat it may look better with a long tie and both are comfortable and both look great. It usually comes down to a preference or a look that couples just want to have. Most Tuxedo shops will have both on display so you can look at them on mannequins and try them in different ways. It also helps to look through a few books with Wedding Pictures and Prom and see what style your eyes go to. My preference at the moment is the Bow Tie but either way you’re a winner. Wear it with confidence because dressing formal is a fun thing to do. Rose Tuxedo has both Bow Ties and Long ties in solid colors and patterns and more. Stop by one of our 3 locations and will change up the mannequins with both looks to try and help you decide. Enjoy your shopping
