The Tuxedo first originated in the US around 1888 and was named after Tuxedo Park, an enclave for New York’s social elite. Now a symbol of celebration, come December and it’s time to get these satin buttoned suits out of the closet. Whether it’s a wedding, a ball or a festive celebration that warrants dressing up, a Tux will have you looking dapper in no time. While traditionally the Tuxedo is still preferred in its black colour, fashion has moved on quite a bit when it comes to the shirts you wear with one.
The designers at CYC The Custom Shop came up with a range of Tuxedo shirts for you to team with that beautiful suit and take on the world of glamour this festive season. Some white, whilst others push the envelope a little; there’s more than enough choice when it comes to Tux shirts this year:
1. The Original, Pleated Front White Shirt
Distinctive yet conservative, the white pleated front can work in just about any formalwear setting. The pleats of a traditional tuxedo shirt like this one run down the front and give you flexibility to choose from a variety of plisse for the front panel. To add an extra bit of ‘fancy’, this one comes with a traditional wing tip collar too!
2. The Original with Glamour
A white traditional panelled front shirt, with a wing collar. Only this time with Swarovski crystal buttons. Perfect for that additional ‘Va Va Voom’.
3. Navy Blue Print
This take on the traditional Tux shirt, is a Swiss Plisse with a navy-blue print and a wing tip collar. When worn with a Tuxedo jacket, the shirt looks just right for a formal event. The printed collar and front placket gives the wearer a chic look. Remove the jacket and the look will be outstanding for clubbing or even that important date.
4. 70’s vintage style shirt
This design is for men who want a bit of fun. The ruffles are reminiscent of the 70’s vintage styles. When worn with a Tux, Jacket or just on its own, this design has a dress down vintage look for the man who wants attention.
