Costumes remind us that the importance of a man’s suit goes beyond personal tastes and fashions. For a suit of this type to fit perfectly a man will have to customize his measurements and of course, take into account the function and use of this.

1. The Morning Coat



It is a suit of etiquette reserved well for the mornings or for the first hours of the afternoon. Formerly it was a garment that was used by English gentlemen to ride horses. Hence, the rear apron is open so that they can raise their arms comfortably. It is composed of:

Jacket:  The back part has the shape of a frock coat but with the peculiarity of having semicircular tips on the back with a small opening. It has a single button and is usually black or gray.

Vest:  You can choose between the rectum and the crusader. It must be fastened whole. The vest should be of your custom size so as it fits properly.

Shirt:  Always must be white, rigid and collar without buttons. In addition to the double cuff to include the twins.

Choose the one you prefer but keep in mind that the Windsor knot is the most appropriate.

Shoes:  The appropriate thing is that they are black, smooth and leather.

Top-hat:  It must be black or gray.

Gloves:  Only for the most daring.

2. The Tuxedo


It is considered a party dress preferably. Its use is predetermined by the end of the afternoon or by night. Formerly it was known as the jacket that gentlemen used when they went to smoke, hence its name. A bespoke tuxedo is still worn in loyal parties and gatherings though comparatively bespoke suits are rated more as it caters all the casual needs of a working class. However, tuxedos has their own signature style to follow and for a man who likes to highlight class, is preferable to opt for a bespoke tuxedo rather than a suit. It is composed of:

Jacket:  You will differentiate it from the previous one because it has a straight cut and does not have skirts. It is usually black or navy blue.

Shirt:  It must be a tailor made white shirt with a bow tie.

Vest:  Wear a black custom made vest.

Bow tie:  Black, you could also wear a tie but it is less common.

Pants:  Preferably the customized pants in black.

Sash:  It is the distinctive garment of the tuxedo since it cannot be used in the rest of the suits. It must be black or clear but with a subtle bright touch.

Gloves:  Optional white or gray.

Shoes:  Black

3. The Tailcoat


As the specialists make clear to us, it is the dress of great gala, we can say that it is the masculine dress of maximum label. “It is used in formal nocturnal acts, state dinners or gala dances held in closed spaces,” they explain. Only the national dress has the same consideration as the tailcoat for the nocturnal acts and must be specified in the invitation. It consists of:

Jacket:  The frock coat has silk lapels, its cut is horizontal and it differs from the rest of the suits because it is much shorter in front. The rear skirts are shaped like a pick and are worn open. In this type of garment can be placed medals or decorations.

Vest:  Not only is it obligatory to wear it but it must be of piqué ivory. A customized vest will good to go and may suit some groups planning to wear same alike tuxedos at a friend’s wedding.

Bow tie:  This accessory is always used, and must be white.

Pants:  They must be with good customization and properly stitched in black, smooth and they may have a silk strip on the sides.

Shoes:  In this case shoes with shine, but black and laces are accepted.


Both are clothing label but made for different types of events. Know your differences:
