    Formalwear expert Ted Poulos discusses the formal tradition tuxedo.

    Ted Poulus: I am Ted Poulus with Sarno and Son Tuxedo and today I am going to show you how to choose a tuxedo for your wedding. I have with me Brian our one model that's going to be modeling the formal traditional look for your wedding party.

    Brian is wearing the Chaps Ralph Lauren jacket in a three button stance, three button front coat. The shirt is a wing collared shirt and he is wearing the black banded bow tie, very traditional in appearance. The vest that Brian is wearing is the Barrington vest by Chaps Ralph Lauren which has the appearance of a Glen Plaid type look.

    Formal traditional is the attire that should be worn for any traditional type wedding. Formal wear simply denotes that the wedding should require a tuxedo, not a suit; otherwise it would be a semi formal look. Brian is in the formal look. Pleated trousers, traditional length jacket by Chaps Ralph Lauren.

    Now I also have Dominic that has a traditional look by Chaps Ralph Lauren in the two buttoned jacket. Heightening up the fashion of the traditional look is the four-in-hand tie that Dominic is wearing. It's a white satin four-in-hand tie which is worn with a laydown collar shirt. The vest is a white satin vest. As you can see it's a six button front vest, complements the tie and this is actually perfect attire for the groom.

    The traditional accent is the white pocket square in the coat. The formal traditional look in a two button jacket by Chaps Ralph Lauren and that's the formal traditional look. Coming up next, we are going to show you the formal fashion look.
