2. Double Breasted Tuxedo:

The focus here is on the jacket's intricate details—wide peak lapels, six buttons, and a very nice silhouette that you want to emphasize. The hidden button tuxedo shirt in our Signature Twill keeps it simple with a hidden placket and French cuff, ensuring attention stays on the tuxedo's grandeur. Make sure to match the fabric of your bowtie with the fabric of the tuxedo lapels, buttons and the stripes on the side of the trousers.
