History of the Tuxedo
The Tuxedo is a classic formal wear outfit that originated in the late 19th century. It was first introduced to America in 1860 in Tuxedo Park, New York - from where it derived it's name. The Tuxedo was initially designed as a less formal alternative to the tailcoat, which was the standard formal wear of the time. The first Tuxedo jackets were made of wool and featured a black satin lapel. Over time, the Tuxedo has evolved, with new styles and materials being introduced. Today, the Tuxedo remains a popular choice for formal events such as weddings, galas, and black-tie affairs.
The classic tuxedo has never gone out of style, though today there are many variations - all of which you can find at Accent Bridal & Tux.
