Fit is everything when it comes to the perfect wedding tuxedo. When shopping for a tuxedo, ensure that you choose the right size and have it tailored to fit your exact measurements. The jacket should allow for sufficient room in the shoulder area for maximum comfort, allowing you to raise your arms parallel to the ground without resistance. Length is also important, as well as a plethora of other factors that make for excellent fitting tuxedos. Castle Rock wedding consultants can provide you with the information you need to choose a well-fitting tuxedo. Use the quick guide below to see how each piece of your tuxedo should fit.

Collar
The collar of your formal shirt should lie flat on the back and sides. The area around the neck should be smooth and free of bulges or gaps.

Jacket
Tuxedo jackets should cover the butt with the bottom hem. If the vent of the jacket pulls open, it means that the jacket is too tight and should be replaced with a larger size.

Shoulders
The shoulders of a tuxedo jacket should be snug, but not overly so. It should simply hug the shoulders and allow sufficient room for free movement. If the jacket features shoulder pads, they should not extend over the shoulders or the jacket is too large.

Sleeves
Jacket sleeves should be specifically hemmed at the wrists. When measured and hemmed correctly, approximately one-half inch of shirt should extend from the jacket sleeves.

Pants
Men have the option of traditional flat-front pants or pleated pants. Flat-front pants are generally more slimming and create the illusion of a flatter midsection. The hem of the pants should rest upon the laces of the shoes.

Socks
No tuxedo is complete without a matching pair of socks. For something a little different, show off your unique personality with a colorful selection. When it comes to wedding tuxedos, Castle Rock wedding consultants can help you dress for success from your jacket to your socks.
