Tuxedo Accessories – The tuxedo and what goes with it? A tuxedo requires a dress shirt, which is white and has French cuffs. If the invitation says “black tie” or tuxedo then the bow tie really should be black. The pocket square in your pocket should be cotton, white and clean. The only two other option would be a red handkerchief in silk for that dash of colour, or a simple white in pure linen. The cummerbund covers the area where the shirt tucks into the pants and its optional, but never forget your suspenders. The cuff links are essential, and gold is very appropriate, or a combination of black and silver. Feel free to match your studs on the tuxedo shirt with you cufflinks. Black socks are worn with the tuxedo and should be knee high and in wool. When it comes to tuxedo accessories the lapel pin is a nice twist. Below we have gathered all the tuxedo accessories you need for that special evening. If the event has a certain theme or unique dress code, it’s fine to ignore some rules above and add other coloured materials.

We love tuxedo accessories but let’s go through the tuxedo. The jacket can be either single or double breasted and usually has silk-faced peaked lapels. The colour is black or midnight blue and so are the pants. The outside seams are embellished with a plain silk stripe, which is called braid. The pants worn with a white tuxedo are also black or midnight blue, never white like the jacket. Now you just need to add your tuxedo accessories and you are good to go.
