Tuxedo Tails

Have you ever wondered what Tuxedo Tails are? They stretch back to the first tuxedo ever made, and even itself was made with tails. However, in the olden days this suit was known as informal dress. Also known as tailcoats or full dress tails they send for a very important formal message at a function, usually white tie. These events mainly take place in the evening, however a dimmer color of blue or gray may be worn at a daytime party or function.

Look how the days change and attire is now the opposite. Now, a tux is known as the most formal dress. There are many more parts consisting as well to the tux. Other items usually worn are braces or suspenders, a white tux shirt, a bow tie, and a vest. Proper foot attire obviously comes naturally. Sometimes, even a hat and gloves are added to finish off that perfect look.

Originally made with a peak lapel, nowadays you'll find more wool or polyester, and in some rare cases shawl or notch lapel. Today, children can be fitted as well as women in almost any color or fabric. And not only weddings but tea parties and special work meetings have become more popular with formality. It's taking quite a turn around in society with such an ill-thought about topic and now you have a heads up on what they are about and where they stem from.
