Step by step instructions on how to measure for a tuxedo and all it&quote;s components. How to measu Measure for a Tuxedo
Transcript:
To measure for a tuxedo, there are three components: To measure the tuxedo, pants and shirt. First I will show you how to measure for a shirt.

The first part of that is measuring the neck. You simply measure around the neck, and it would be good to leave at least a finger or two space between there. The next step is to measure the sleeves. The sleeves should be measured from the center of the spine, down to the shoulder, then all the way down to the wrist.

The next item to measure would be the pants. Many people already know their waist size, but the way to measure them is right below the belly button going around the waist. Our pants are adjustable at the waist, so you only need to now a range of sizes. The second measurement for a pair of pants is the length. All of our pants at Tuxedosonline.com do not come hemmed, so you don't have to worry about this measurement. However you do have to worry about it to get it hemmed, so I will show you show to do it. You take it from the waist, where the pants end up, all the way down to almost the floor. This would give you the out seam. What you would do is put the pants on the table, measure to your out seam, draw a line with tailor's chalk, and hem it at that length, and you don't have to take it to a tailor if you don't want to. If you do, chances are it won't be too expensive, $5-10. That's why we keep our pants unhemmed when we sell them online. The third measurement is the coat. The coat measurement is more art than science. The first thing to do for the coat measurement is to measure the chest. Don't measure too tight or too loose, have a 3 or 4 fingers worth of space there. Shirts come in short regular and long. Anyone under 6 feet is regular, under 5'7" is short and anyone over 6 feet is long. This measurement is not a perfect way to find a coat size. the best way would be to put a coat of that size on you. Try different coats and see if they are comfortable on you.

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.

Please print out this handy measurement form and take it to your local formalwear shop for a courtesy fitting.
