Summer 2012: When and Why to Wear a Tux

Now that Memorial Day is behind us and it's well into summer, you're likely thinking that it's time to hang up the formal attire, break out the grill, and relax. While you should by all means be thinking about some quality barbeque, though, don't be so ready to throw your nice duds in the back of the closet. Prom might be over, and graduation parties are already done with, but summer is a season full of opportunities for you to fit into that tuxedo and class it up.

The Quince is a special celebration for a young lady, and any man in attendance, whether it be an uncle, a father, a brother, or a friend, should be dressed accordingly. You may decide on wearing a classic, simple black tuxedo, reserved and dignified; or you might decide instead on something more bold and festive, a white tuxedo to keep you cool in the summer heat Another great way to celebrate the season and also get to show off your great wardrobe is going on a summer cruise. Taking a week or two off is sure to relieve stress and enjoy a genuine vacation during the months of June to September. Can it be expensive?

Another obvious choice is to bring along your own formal attire instead of having to rent it on the boat: on most cruises you'll be expected to dress up for seated dinner regularly, so why not bring a nice white dinner jacket? Fine Tuxedos has a great inventory of cruise attire, and any fellow voyager is sure to be impressed by their Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein threads. If you're going on a cruise this summer, don't be afraid to go the extra mile and show your style. It may already be halfway through June, but summer is definitely far from over, and that means you still have plenty of time to take advantage of it. If you or someone you know is celebrating a Quince, don't hesitate to accept their invitation – show up in a tux and enjoy the summer night.  Alternatively, f ind that jacket, tie, or tuxedo that will make a summer cruise for you and a loved one that much more special.
