Steve's Guidances:

Fabric. If you’re a true purist, a tuxedo is always black, and typically in a worsted wool. As the rules have relaxed over the years, you’ll now find tuxedos in a variety of colors, usually dark, with the exception of the white dinner jacket.

Lapels. Perhaps the most distinguishing aspect of a tuxedo jacket, the lapels are never the same fabric as the rest of the garment. Instead, they have a satin or grosgrain facing, and are almost always black, again with the exception of white dinner jackets that occasionally come with matching white satin lapels. Peak Lapels are the most common, though Shawl Lapels give them a run for their money, but Notch Lapels are generally excluded.

Buttons. The standard for everyday suiting these days is two buttons – three is an option, a 2/3 roll is a classic, but for a tuxedo, it’s always one button. The button itself is unique as well, usually covered in the same satin or grosgrain facing as the lapels.

Waist Covering. Nothing kills the clean lines that make a tuxedo so alluring like an unsightly triangular patch of white under the jacket button, so a Cummerbund is vital to completing the look. A waistcoat is a viable, if slightly outdated option.

Pockets. Coming back to those clean lines, pocketing on tuxedos is just as slick, with jackets almost always coming with jetted pockets.

Trousers. Tuxedo trousers are also quite distinctive, with a stripe of fabric in the same material as the lapels running down the outseam of the pant. Also, tuxedo trousers almost never have belt loops, opting for the cleaner look of waist tabs. Finally, hems are never cuffed. Yet another way to maintain those clean lines.

Accessories and Accoutrements. Neckwear is a black bowtie, and traditionally in the same fabric as the lapels. Shirting is white, with a bib front and French Cuffs, and customizations include pleated or pique bibs, hidden lapels, or stud buttons

Footwear. Shoes are black, Cognac, Brown, or Classic Ivory in Matte Finish.
