On Black Friday this year, we as a family went into Center City Philadelphia to enjoy a dinner together and see the Christmas Village in Love Park. Some of you know that our daughter, Daria, is getting married on New Year’s Eve in 2024 at the Elkins Estate. Certainly an exciting time for our family.
Her fiancé, Jeff, was in the car with us and one of the the discussions was what do you wear to a black tie wedding on New Year’s Eve. Turns out, Darianna® Bridal & Tuxedo dresses thousands of people every year for weddings, galas and New Year’s Eve events. We have some ideas for you (and him).
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!
The Sable is a black shawl lapel tuxedo from Erik Lawerence. This one is both classic and timeless, a more budget-friendly version of our Chandler black shawl lapel tuxedo from Ike Behar, yet still quite sharp.
The Chandler from Ike Behar black shawl lapel tuxedo is the perfect attire if you are looking for a classy and timely look. The trim fit one button jacket always fits like a custom jacket. The full satin lapels, buttons and besom pockets are always a nice, formal added touch to the tuxedo.
Chandler is sophisticated, modern, and very handsome.
Why is the Mason tuxedo so popular with brides, grooms and formal event attendees? There are many reasons. The trim fit jacket and pants are modern, yet exude a timeless look. A good portion of our customers prefer notch lapel suits and tuxedos and this tuxedo checks that box.
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!
