Style and variants of the Tuxedo Shirt

There are some basic styles that you can choose from and some advanced details as well. You always want your shirt to match with your suit and the entire outfit that you’re wearing. And this does not only apply for special themed events. You should look good everywhere.

The plain front version of the tuxedo shirts is the least “formal” option that is available. It has a French placket and it folds in order to create the area where buttons are supposed to be placed. You can choose to wear this version with, or without French cuffs. It’s clean and uncomplicated choice if you’re trying to look good without worrying too much about other details. It’s more commonly used with a straight tie. Bow ties do not see much use with the plain front version of the Tux Shirt

The pleated front version of the Tuxedo Shirt is almost always worn with a bow tie. It has two panels made out of pleated fabric on the front sides. The size of the pleats may vary depending on what you choose, but most of the times they are about two inches wide. Also, they’re made from the same material as the shirt itself in order to maximize the matching look. And, it looks best when combined with a jacket that has a shawl collar.

Tuxedo Shirts can come with or without some accessories such as French cuffs, tux studs, and buttons. From there it is up to you to choose what you’re going to wear and how many accessories you’re going to attach. Collars also come in different shapes and sizes, some are more formal and some are more casual. Pick one according to the event.
