Traditional or trendy, for rent or for purchase, options abound for today’s groom.
Whether the groom prefers the traditional (and most popular) two-button notch, the satin-edge peak lapel, or the resurgent shawl, many husbands-to-be fancy the finest fabrics, reports Larry Cord of Windsor Tuxedo in White Plains. For the most comfortable and best-looking tuxes, he recommends Super 100 or Super 120, special lightweight wools. Popular looks this spring are striped Windsor ties with coordinated vests. “They are available in every color imaginable, so the bride can match the vest set with the bridesmaid’s dresses,” Cord says.
