There’s a surprising number of men who still ask the same question that formalwear specialists still get at least once a day: what’s the difference between suits and tuxedos? Granted, to the untrained eye and from a distance these two things might look pretty similar. But it’s more subtle things that make up the difference between suits and tuxedos. By far the biggest difference between suits and tuxedos is the lapel. Tuxedos will have a satin lapel, giving them a ‘shinier’ look. Tuxedo jackets also have different buttons. Tuxedo buttons lack the four-holed look that suit buttons have, and …
