How To Make The Most From Dinner Suit Hire

Feb 29, 2008
Going to a school ball is one of the most memorable events of life. In America the prom is the biggest night of the whole school calendar and they go in for it in a massive way. The girls go out and purchase ludicrously expensive dresses which they keep for the rest of their lives. The boys dash down to the suit hire store and hire a suit that will make them look good for the event.

The school prom is a seminal moment in many people's lives and recently this trend has begun to creep over the pond. An increasing number of schools in the UK now hold a formal dance at the end of the year and as a result the number of young men seeking to hire dinner suits is on the increase. It's a great opportunity to have a definitive moment in your life that can be photographed for posterity.

The next major event that people utilise dinner suit hire is for black tie events. These are typically things like large birthday parties or charity events. The general term for the dinner suit in America is the Tuxedo and this name has crossed over to usage in English. Other ways in which this style of suit is referred to are semi-formal, black tie and evening dress. The most typical styling that differentiates this type of suite from the conventional suit is the use of a bow tie. The bow tie is the most visible difference between this style of dress and other suits.

As well as having this accessory the suits have a very different cut. The most typical design feature is that they are single breasted and are made of black wool. Traditionally the trousers are made from the same fabric as the jacket - black wool and are noticeable for their trim. This trim is usually made up of an inch thick satin ribbon that runs down the outer leg seam of the trousers. This satin should match the satin on the lapel of the jacket.

The shirt that one wears with a dinner suit also differs greatly from the type of shirt that you wear with a conventional suit. There are two major choices of shirt design. These are a raised collar or folded collar. The turned down collar looks similar to the traditional shirt and the bow tie is hidden underneath it with only the bow visible at the front. The collar up version of the shirt leaves the tie visible and has an up turned collar that juts up to the chin. The shirt can come in a variety of styles in which the front breast of the shirt can be adorned with a number of different styles.

Some shirts have a plain design but some have frilly sections that give the look certain flamboyance. One of the most popular style choices is the shirt that has sharp creases vertically down the front of the shirt. This makes the shirt distinguishable from a normal shirt. The dinner shirt also differs in that the cuffs typically need to be attached with cuff links. The choice of cuff links can finish off a dinner suit and help make a really good impression.
