Kids Tuxedos for Style & Pazazz
A tuxedo is a formal evening wear typically worn by men at formal events such as weddings, proms, and black tie events. Boys tuxedos are a smaller version of a men's tuxedo and are worn by boys at formal events.
Typically, a boys black tuxedo includes a jacket, trousers, a dress shirt, a bow tie or a long tie, and dress shoes. The jacket of a boys tuxedo is typically made of a formal fabric such as wool or silk, and is usually black or navy blue in color. The trousers are typically made of the same fabric as the jacket and feature a satin stripe down the leg. The dress shirt is typically white, with a wing-tip collar and French cuffs. The bow tie or long tie is usually black and is worn with the dress shirt. The dress shoes are typically black and polished to a shine.
Boys tuxedos come in a variety of styles, such as single-breasted, double-breasted, and peak lapel. The single-breasted tuxedo is the most common style and features a single button closure. The double-breasted tuxedo features a double-breasted button closure, and the peak lapel tuxedo has a peaked lapel on the jacket. Other popular styles include the shawl lapel, the notch lapel and the mandarin collar.
When it comes to accessories, boys tuxedos can be paired with a variety of accessories such as a cummerbund, a vest, a pocket square, and a boutonnière. A cummerbund is a waistband worn around the waist and traditionally worn with a single-breasted tuxedo. A vest is a sleeveless garment worn over the dress shirt and under the jacket, it can be worn with or without a cummerbund. A pocket square is a small square of fabric that is folded and placed in the breast pocket of the tuxedo jacket, and a boutonnière is a flower worn on the lapel of the jacket.
