What is the difference between a tuxedo and a suit?


We’ve been writing about tuxedos a lot lately and one of the things that we still haven’t mentioned is, what is the difference between a suit and a tuxedo anyway?

The good news is that the answer is quite simple:

1) Tuxes will have satin covered lapels whereas suit lapels will just be made from the same material as the rest of the suit is made of.

2) Tux pants will usually have a satin strip down the outer legs.

3) Shiny shoes are required.

There are more differences but those three are the most common ;)
