All about Tuxedo Vests
Tuxedo vests are an important part of a perfect tuxedo. Although it is not often worn by people, many have considered it as a vital accessory that must not be missed for it is highly capable of enhancing the appearance and looks of a tuxedo wearer. It is for this claim that we often see people at the weddings and prom nights wearing not just a suit, but a complete tuxedo with a tuxedo vest inside the jacket.
The tuxedo vests are often worn without the cummerbund. Although there is no rule governing this matter, many experts have said that a tuxedo accessorized with a vest and a cummerbund is completely gauche. The tuxedo is in fact accepted as only the close-second classic gear to the cummerbund, but the good news is that you can wear it in any formal occasion.
Just like the rest of the garments, the tuxedo vests are made of different fabrics. The most popularly used fabric is silk, which is also used for the tuxedo ties. This fabric is said to be perfect as it provides a tux a perfect sheen. Aside from that, silk adds a sense of luxury to the garment, then making the tuxedo perfect for formal affairs. However, it is also because of this material that most of the tuxedo vests that are made of silk come at a pretty high price.
Microfiber is also considered as a great material for tuxedo vests. It is deemed great knowing that microfiber is a synthetic fabric capable of giving a garment a fine and lustrous feel. It is also lightweight and provides enough air, so even when you are trapped in a hot room, you will surely feel comfortable and cool with the microfiber tuxedo vest.
It is further worth noting that microfiber can resist wrinkles, so even if you will just straighten or smooth the surface of your tuxedo vests, you will look fresh and pressed. Oh! A bowl of gravy hits you? Don't worry because tuxedo vests made of fiber are washable.
Wondering what sizes are available for tuxedo vests? Well, just note that like the other garments available on the market, the vests come in different sizes. The sizes are tailored according to the standard sizes of men and women. They usually come by these names: small, medium and large. There are, however, others that are designed to fit obese people. Perhaps the best way to find the right size is to know exactly your own measure.
