tuxedosonline.com explains what shoes to wear with your tuxedo, patten leather and what it means. Tuxedo Shoes, What to Wear
Transcript:
I'd like to take a moment to talk about the tuxedo shoes and what you should wear with a tuxedo. Normally the tuxedo shoe you should wear is patent leather. Patent leather is a very shiny type of leather shoe. It can be in a jazz oxford cut(pointed tip) or any other cut that you would like. We have many different shoes online; In fact, now we have leopard skin and varying types of shiny other types of shoes there. I'd like to talk about the word "patent leather". Patent leather has come to mean plastic in recent years because of the tuxedo rental industry. Mostly, patent leather is rented with a tuxedo. In tuxedo rentals, they need to have durable and inexpensive shoes, therefore patent leather has always been not real leather, but it doesn't necessarily need to be. There is patent leather that is real leather, that has the patented shine on top. The majority of patent leather that you find out there is man made, and they are incredibly comfortable for a man made shoe. They also come in different cuts, like I said before; a square tone patent leather shoe(patent leather shoe with a squared tip), and also a black and white patent leather shoe for a more jazzy type of look(patent leather shoe with white in the middle and black on the sides). I'd also like to talk about tuxedo socks. Tuxedo socks have traditionally been sheer socks. You can wear regular black socks with it, but we do sell sheer tuxedo socks online, and they're relatively inexpensive if you want to buy them. Both in calf-high and regular height socks.

Here are some FAQ about wedding tuxedos

When should I reserve my tuxedo?
Its never too early to shop for your tuxedos. In general, you should start picking out the men's formalwear after you have bought the wedding dress, and decided on the colors and style of the bridesmaid dresses. The first visit should be with your fiancÚ to decide on the styles of the groom's and attendant's tuxedos. Based on the colors of the wedding, you can choose vests or cummerbunds for the attendants. The groom should always insist on trying his tuxedo as a precaution; choosing from a picture can be deceiving.

How do I decide on accessories?
Generally, the attendants wear accessories associated with the colors that are chosen for the wedding. Full back vests are the newest items in men's formalwear. They are more comfortable and will make you look like you own your tuxedo because most tux shops don't carry full back vests. We have the largest selection of full back vests in stock in the Los Angeles area. They come in all colors and various styles. The professionals at Gregory's will help you choose the accessories for your party. Another important accessory is the shoe. We have three beautiful styles to chose from. The entire wedding party should wear the same type of shoes in order to keep the party in unison and to assure a good look. You can try on all of these accessories at our store until you find the right ones.

Who should wear a tuxedo?
The Groom and attendants of course, but not exclusively. The ring bearer and candle boys should also be in a tuxedo. The fathers will look and feel better in a tuxedo rather than a suit. After all, it wouldn't look good if the bride's father gave her away in a suit. It would also be a big compliment to the grandfathers to have them wear a tuxedo. Today's weddings are now calling for guests to wear tuxedos as well. The way to do this is to write Black Tie Invited.

Many of my attendants are out of town. How do I get them fitted?
You can print out the form at the bottom and take it to any Tuxedo shop in the country. They will give you a courtesy fitting, and then you can fax, call in, or E-mail us the measurements and we will prepare the tuxedos that you choose for that person.

What if something doesn't fit?
We insist that you try on your tuxedo before picking it up. If there is something wrong, all our stock is on the premises. We can either alter or change your tuxedo in ten minutes. Ask if other tuxedo shops can do this; it is very rare.
