7 Exciting New Tuxedos & Suits!
The Jean Yves Heather Grey ‘Twilight’ Tuxedo and Suit
Grey Tuxedos continue to grow in popularity, so we have added the Jean Yves Heather Grey ‘Twilight’ Tuxedo, as well as the satin-less suit variant. They are made in the same updated slimmer fit of the Steel Grey ‘Twilight’ we purchased last year that was so successful. The tuxedo has a satin lapel and top collar with self trim, and is made of fine Super 100’s material making it lighter and more comfortable, which is perfect for beachside or destination weddings! The tuxedo and suit will have a matching three button vest and self material bow tie.
They join the rest of the Jean Yves ‘Twilight’ line from FWI, which already includes the Steel Grey Tuxedo, Steel Grey Suit, and new for this year, the ‘Twilight’ in Black (more below). As a note of interest, the Heather Grey ‘Twilight’ Tuxedo and Suit are made of the same Super 100’s fabric as the Jean Yves Heather Grey ‘Savoy.’ The primary differences between the two garments are the updated fit on the ‘Twilight’ line, and the self material with satin trim lapel and top collar on the ‘Savoy.’
We expect these styles to be exceedingly popular this year! For a more in depth look, check out our review of the Heather Grey ‘Twilight’ Tuxedo. This elegant tuxedo and suit will be available for rental this spring.
The Situation ‘Avalon’ and ‘Asbury’ Tuxedos
Also new this year are two tuxedos from Mike ‘the Situation’ Sorrentino of TV’s ‘Jersey Shore’ fame. The Situation teamed up with the great folks at FLOW Formals and released several fashion tuxedos designed to show that your tuxedo doesn’t always have to look like the classics you see in old movies! Both tuxedos have an updated, slimmer fit, and are made from tropical worsted wool. The ‘Avalon’ tuxedo has a two button front with peak lapels trimmed with satin. So far, the design is fairly standard, but what makes the ‘Avalon’ Tuxedo unique are the 1/2 inch satin bands that run over the shoulders and down the front. For more information on the Situation’s ‘Avalon’ Tuxedo, check out the review we did last month.
In addition to the ‘Avalon’ Tuxedo, FLOW also released under the Situation label the ‘Asbury’ Tuxedo. The ‘Asbury’ has two defining features: a ticket pocket on the right side, and pick-stitching on the lapel! Celebrity personality Mike ‘the Situation’ Sorrentino looks very fashionable, and his signature line of beautiful tuxedos will look great on you too at prom or any other formal event! Both tuxedos will be available for rental this spring.
The Jean Yves Black ‘Twilight’ Tuxedo
The Black ‘Twilight’ Tuxedo is a beautiful new interpretation of formal wear that fits beautifully and has all the right features. It has the same specifications and features as the previously mentioned Steel Grey and Heather Grey ‘Twilight’ Tuxedos, including a satin lapel and top collar with self trim, two button front and side vents. The updated, slimmer silhouette fits beautifully, especially for a rental garment. It has a matching three button vest, and pre-tied bow tie. Perfect as a wedding tux, prom tux, or any other formal occasion, the Black ‘Twilight’ Tuxedo will be available to rent this spring.
The Jean Yves Black ‘Ceremonia’ Suit
The Black ‘Ceremonia’ Suit is a classic, beautiful, well fitting suit. It features the updated, slimmer fit that most people are looking for today. While it is not a skinny suit, the updated cut is designed to have less excess fabric, and provide a more fitted shape to the wearer. It is made of high quality tropical worsted wool, and has a matching three button vest, pre-tied bow tie, and flat front trousers.
PM Black ‘Icon’ Tuxedo
There’s really not much to say about this tuxedo that the picture doesn’t convey. . . this is a quintessential and elegant tuxedo. Any man that wears a one button peak lapel tuxedo is going to look better in it than they would wearing anything else! Like the rest of our new formal wear, this tuxedo has an updated fit to meet the needs of today’s customer. Featuring a satin peak lapel, and one button front, the spec’s are perfect! A lot of attention was paid to the width of the peak lapel, to make sure it wasn’t too wide, or too skinny. Take a look at its product page for the PM Black ‘Icon’ Tuxedo to get all the details, and don’t forget to read our review, “Tuxedo Review: PM Black ‘Icon’ Tuxedo.”
Remember, for the special occasions in life, ‘Formal is Normal!’
