Featured Tuxedo: Navy Sebastian

The Ike Behar navy tuxedo called Sebastian is known to many of our brides and grooms.  It is quite popular and in fact in our survey of Top 10 tuxedos and suits worn for autumn weddings, this tuxedo was Number 2! That’s an impressive ranking given that the total number of suits and tuxedos on the list was 70!

Featured Tuxedo: Princeton Peak Lapel

Erik Lawrence tuxedos and suits are known for great style at a lower price, and the Princeton is a popular option.

While the Ike Behar equivalent to this tuxedo is far more luxurious, some couples we work with want to be respectful of their groomsmen’s budgets when dressing them for their wedding. We all know being asked to be in a wedding, or even several in one year, can run into a large time and financial commitment. The Princeton tends to be approximately $50 less for the rental price of an equivalent high-end tuxedo from Ike Behar or Allure!

Featured Tuxedo: Romeo From Ike Behar

To our surprise, double-breasted tuxedo jackets are coming back.  A few years ago, the owners of Darianna® Bridal & Tuxedo visited a wedding dress designer in Italy who said that the European fashion designers were moving towards a more relaxed fix and re-introducing double-breasted tuxedos.  We didn’t believe him.  Three months after returning from Italy, we received notification from tuxedo and suit designers that they are offering double-breasted versions of some of our most popular tuxedos and suits!

Featured Tuxedo: Jackson From Ike Behar

There are many choices of tuxedos and suits for your wedding, gala or formal event.  Gone are the days where the only choice you had for a tuxedo is black. Today we see black, gray, navy, varying shades of blue and even multi-colored and patterned tuxedos. The choices are almost limitless and different times of year may open the doors to choosing something a little different for your event.

However, still and probably always, the standard-bearer when you think ‘classic tux’ is black. Today, we are featuring one of them: “Jackson” from Ike Behar, a gorgeous (and dare we say sexy?!) black peak lapel tuxedo.
