Fabric, color style and front varies, when it comes to Tuxedo Shirts. Now that you have chosen the perfect Tux, lets explore some Tuxedo Shirt Options to help you look your best.
The Plain Front Tuxedo Shirt
The French placket and removable button strip makes this the cleanest and most versatile option. Swap the buttons for studs with a tux, or leave them in for a sharp look under a suit in a pinch. This is definitely a classic and the most common choice when it comes to Tuxedo Shirts.
As the plain front is on the less formal end of the tuxedo shirt spectrum, it can be worn easily with or without French cuffs, and the plain front’s clean look gives it a modern appeal that is a great choice with contemporary slim-lapelled jackets. If you prefer wearing a straight tie to a bow tie at formal events, this is your best bet.
The Pleated Front Tuxedo Shirt
A traditional tuxedo shirt style that looks fantastic with a shawl collar or notch lapel tux — think Sean Connery as Bond. Slightly less formal than a pique front, but is a crowd favorite.
Distinctive yet conservative, the pleated front can work in just about any formalwear setting, though you’ll want to leave your straight tie at home. The 1/2″ pleats are an ideal width—classic, not busy or ruffly.
The Pique Bib Front Tuxedo Shirt
If you want to stand out of the crowd, the most formal choice for a tuxedo shirt. Pique front shirts are timeless for how clean the bib lays underneath a jacket.
You’ll want to go with French cuffs and a nice set of studs with a pique bib. The pique bib front looks best with a peak or shawl lapel jacket, and we suggest it for any event labeled white tie.
