“In a tuxedo, I’m a star. In regular clothes, I’m nobody.” Dean Martin
Let’s take a trip down memory lane to 1886 when Griswold Lorillard, a young fashion icon, created a furor in Tuxedo Park New York by downing a tail-less jacket to a white tie and tails ball at an exclusory event. The miffed organizers didn’t approve of Griswold’s rebellious clothing and he was asked to leave. However, Lorillard’s jacket gestated a new fashion cult and society in general loved his adaptation of jacket and the rest is history. Today the Tux or Tuxedo is widely accepted as a benchmark for evening and formal wear.
In India however a vast majority of men are still confused about the difference between a tuxedo and a suit. To a layman they can look like twins. But few profound and sophisticated nuances make all the difference. For starters a Tuxedo will always have a satin label that gives them a shiner look. And the most prominent differentiator is they lack the four-holed look that suit buttons have.
In the last decade or so Tuxedos have not only gained momentum in India, but also received endorsements from some of the biggest names in the fashion industry. While as a mass we still attach the tuxedo to celebrities, they are fast becoming the ‘go to’ choice for grooms in India at the most auspicious occasion of his life.
