Cool. Calm. Collected. For any guy, this is the kind of imagery you want a suit to conjure. Grooms, if you want you to deviate from traditional black tuxedos, then take a look at these styles to find shades of gray to best display your personalities for your Las Vegas weddings.
Ready for any real man, this dark gray tuxedo gives grooms the best balance of fashion-forward enigma and classic style. Complete with a satin-edged peak lapel, two buttons, and sleek pockets, this Calvin Klein look works for late afternoon or evening weddings. Pair it with a gray vest, a gray silk necktie or Euro tie, and a white spread collar shirt for the ultimate attire.
Capture your bride’s attention with this smooth, suave tuxedo. Known as the Steel Grey Twilight Tuxedo, this Jean Yves design presents a single-breasted, two-button jacket with fully satin pockets, lapels, and collar. Pair it with a silver silk necktie, and wear a winged collar shirt for the epitome of evening formalwear.
Tackle the balance between formal and casual with a light gray tuxedo that sports two buttons, flap pockets, and a notch lapel. Designed for weddings in full daylight, this style gives grooms the comfort of a sport coat with its construction but the formality of a tuxedo with its satin trim. Finish strong with a formal shirt, complemented by a Windsor knot tie, full vest, and pocket handkerchief that blends with the wedding’s colors.
Achieve a traditional look that’s appropriate for formal weddings with a black tuxedo that features gray pinstripes. Created to respect conventional styles, this tuxedo also offers a modern edge with its single-breasted, unbuttoned jacket and spread collar shirt. To complete your attire, be neutral with a gray vest and necktie all while showing your style through the fit and texture of the fabric.
Choose the Right Shoes:
To complete your look, consider what color shoes you’ll wear with a gray tuxedo. Well-shined black shoes give a timeless level of formality and a sharp sleekness. They also tell your guests that while you’re wearing a gray suit, you understand the importance of this day and the solemnity of your vows.
But black shoes aren’t your only option. For a contemporary approach, consider brown dress shoes. Dark brown shoes provide a polished look, but still deliver a strong sense of character. Or if you prefer a more casual, indie look that brushes the balance between “too much” and “just enough,” then select a medium shade of brown or even play with textures, like suede or croc. Just don’t go too light with the brown tone. It’ll clash with your tux.
Show your Style:
Due to the gray tuxedo’s flexibility, you can customize your wedding attire to fit your personality. Customize your tuxedo’s cufflinks and choose a suitable watch. For a suit, ditch the vest, and opt for an eye-catching necktie and a bright boutonniere. Try a dark shade for your formal shirt, or wear a fanciful gingham print button-down with a straight tie. However you accessorize your tuxedo, be sure it suits the occasion and fits the formality of your bride’s and your wedding.
