You’ve never had so much attention in your entire life, so make sure you look and feel great at your wedding. From the professional photographers and their perpetual lurking eye, to the omnipresent videographer, and all the amateur shutter flies in attendance – not to mention all your guests – you will be gawked, shot and filmed from every angle known to man. Therefore, its important to find the perfect tuxedo to complement your body type.

Keep these tips in mind when choosing a tuxedo and groomsmen tuxedos for that will flatter on the big day and leave an enduring image of the you in perpetuity.

For the Tall and Thin Guy

Congratulations. You can wear just about any tuxedo, from contemporary styles – like single-breasted four-button jackets – to a more classic, double-breasted tuxedo with broad shoulders. The choice is yours. If you’re extremely thin and want to look bulkier, opt for the latter; it will pad your chest slightly and fill out your torso. One caveat: Make sure your trouser legs and jacket arms are long enough.

For the Husky / Muscular Guy

Go for a smooth, clean look without a lot of frills. A shawl collar (a more rounded lapel than a peak collar) will create an elegant line that will make you seem less bulky. Avoid double-breasted jackets and pleated shirts, which add volume. If you have a large waist, consider wearing a vest instead of a cummerbund, since cummerbunds draw attention to the waist, while vests conceal girth. Keep in mind that black has a slimming effect, which makes the classic tux perfect for you. You’ll probably find that white suits, light-colored suits (such as tan or seersucker), morning suits, and tails are not your most flattering looks. And if you’re extremely muscular, be aware of sizing, especially around your neck. You don’t want to feel like your bow tie has you feeling horse-collared by Troy Polamalu.

For the Short / Stout Guy

Stick with a single-breasted jacket. Go for a classic two- or one-button jacket with a low-button stance and a shawl collar, which will keep your look streamlined and slim. Also, choose a jacket with a natural shoulder line, and avoid the more broad European styles. If you have a heavy waist, choose a vest rather than a cummerbund to draw attention away from your waistline and up toward your face. And once again, remember that black has a slimming effect, which makes the classic tux perfect for you. When it comes to sizing, make sure your jacket and trousers fit well. When you button your jacket, the material near the buttons shouldn’t pull. Your trousers should fit comfortably around your waist.

Stick to this guide fellas and you’ll thank me on your wedding day and every time you pick up your wedding album off the coffee table. Size matters…especially when considering the perfect tuxedo for your wedding.
