As far back as the 1860s the increasing popularity of outdoor pursuits among the British middle & upper classes led to a corresponding increase in the popularity of the lounge suit This became a country alternative to the more starchy formal daywear traditionally worn by menabouttown Men also sought an alternative to the stiffly formal tailcoat worn in the evening at society functions For some country squires the solution was to adopt the casual velvet smoking jacket by having it made from the same fabric as the evening tailcoat This made it more acceptable for more informal homedining A turningpoint in the respectability of wearing tailless jackets as a part of eveningdress came with the adoption of the style by the UK Prince of Wales (later to become King Edward VII) The Prince′s tailors Henry Poole & Co of Savile Row have an undated receipt for a blue silk smoking jacket ordered by the future monarch to wear to informal dinnerparties They have variously claimed dates of 1860 & 1865 for this receipt
•Tailcoat A tailcoat is the type of coat in which the front portion of the coat`s skirt is cut down. As a result the skirt part can be seen only at the flipside. The trend of wearing tailcoats is not new and men have been wearing it since ages. If you also want to buy this type of tux then you should get ready for a treat. These days various designs and patterns can be found in tailcoats and getting one stitched for you would not be daunting. •Stroller A different type of tuxedos for men that is simple yet elegant is a stroller. The term stroller is used to refer to a tuxedo that is designed without using any amount of satin. Usually this type of tuxedo will be suitable for occasions in daytime. To complete the look you can think of wearing the tuxedo with striped trousers. The shirt with a lay down collar matches the suit completely. •Shawl Collared Tuxedo The shawl collared tuxedo looks perfect no matter on what occasion you are wearing it. The smooth collar of the jacket makes the jacket look graceful. Coming to the lapel of the tux it is given a curved shape and it runs smoothly from the beginning to the end. If you plan to buy this tuxedo for yourself then you can team it up with round collared shirt and a bow tie.
