About Shawl Collar Tuxedos
Arguably the most important part of your tuxedo is the jacket. There are endless styles and fabric possibilities to choose from. However, the first options you may want to decide upon are the lapel size and shape. There are three basic lapel styles to choose from: notched, peak, and shawl. The shawl collar tuxedo is a classic that has a bolder style than the other available choices.
If you are looking to be even more fashion-forward, selecting a tuxedo with a wide shawl collar is a wise choice. This is a popular look for modern grooms and their wedding tuxedos. They are also showing up more frequently on younger men that are attending their junior and senior proms.
Additionally, these types of tuxedos with contrasting colored shawl lapels are increasingly being seen on the red carpet as well as other important social events. Sports figures, celebrities and music icons are pushing the men's formal wear envelope to new and uncharted realms with shawl collar tuxedos in uncommon colors and extravagant patterns.
