Other events may include after hour parties, holiday events, family religious occasions and many more. Tuxedo options are abundant and may include designer tuxedo by Calvin Klein. Regardless of why you need a tuxedo formal wear here are some things you should know about your tuxedo.

First of all you should know that buying a tuxedo is much less than you would expect. You will find the purchase of a tuxedo is equal to that of a rental. Do the necessary research so you can make an informed decision. With many online vendors for tuxedo formal wear purchase you can find out from the comfort of your home.

The rule of thumb is that if a lady wears a floor-length dress, the gentleman should wear formal attire, and that style is dictated by time of day and level of formality.

Give yourself enough lead time. If you are purchasing online you will need to plan on one week to receive the package and if a tailor is necessary you will need some time for any alterations. Overall two weeks minimum.

Do a search for tuxedos online. Many have a photo gallery and explanation of ordering a tux. Tuxedo formal wear websites allow you to choose the elements online.

Consult with the website store when considering the wide range of options. Jackets have a notch, peak or shoulder lapel. They can be ultra-formal full dress tails, a cutaway jacket suitable for formal events before 6 p.m., or a tuxedo jacket, appropriate for any formal affair. Shirt choices include a lay down, wing and cavalier collar, finished off with a bow tie, ascot or lay down tie.

Choose colors according to the time of day and nature of the event. Gray is traditional before 6 p.m., and black for all formal evening affairs. You may wish to consult your date for the evening and coordinate cummerbund or vest as desired.

Tuxedo selection for a wedding should be guided by the color of the bride's gown and bridesmaids' dresses. Wedding-party specials may include a jacket, trousers, vest or cummerbund, shirt, suspenders, cufflinks, studs and tie from $50 to $100 or more. Or with a certain number of groomsmen's tuxedos, the groom's tux may even be free.

If you are buying a tuxedo prices range according to the style, options, fabric and if you are purchasing a designers like Calvin Klein or Fiorelli tuxedo formal wear.

When buying a tuxedo, choose a style that will fit right in at weddings, gala evenings and any formal occasion. Steer toward the classics so it will not go out of style.

Buy a tuxedo that has a black tie and black cummerbund. This will provide you with a basic, elegant "black-tie" look that will match any formal outfit your date may wear. You can always rent white or colored accessories should the need arise.

Personalize your look by selecting a jacket and shirt unique to your taste and build. Jacket cuts vary from cropped to smoking. Shirtfront options include fine pleats or delicate ribs, black enamel or pearl-like buttons.

Remember the sequence for getting dressed in a tux. Underwear and socks followed by shirt and pants. Add the cummerbund then jacket, followed by your tie, then shoes.
