Make your Mark

By Janine Giorgenti

It’s wedding season, and it’s time to finally start getting your wardrobe appropriately outfitted for it!

The recent resurgence of men’s fashion these past few years has made it widely acceptable to showcase your style, and allow for much variety when picking and wearing a tuxedo.

A variety of tuxedo lapels allow for a different look every time you wear a tuxedo to an event. This opens up the doors to a world of opportunities to exhibit cutting-edge style at your next black-tie affair.

Here are the three varieties of tuxedo lapels:

1: The Notch Lapel

This classic “go-to” lapel shape makes it very easy to dress up your outfit, and pair it with most shirt patterns and colors. The Notch Lapel will look amazing with either grosgrain or satin on the collar and/or lapel.

2: The Peak Lapel

The Peak Lapel is now an extremely popular choice for tuxedo jackets this year. This is primarily due to its shape and size, that can draw attention and mask one’s imperfections. The Peak Lapel is known for providing the look of power and an increased presence.

3: The Shawl Lapel

The Shawl Lapel jacket is one of the smoothest and subtle details that one can own. This was James Bond’s favorite jacket, the jacket the Gatsby would wear to his own events, and the jacket that Kingsman would wear to blend in — in style. The Shawl Lapel jacket is an absolute must have for 2017!
