PART 2 – WEDDING SHIRT GUIDE

blog-innerimg1Every groom wants to look his stylish best in a tuxedo on the wedding day. One of the key components of a tuxedo is the tuxedo shirt also called as dinner shirt. In this blog we will discuss key features of dress shirt and your options when getting a tailor made dress shirt.

One can shop around for off the rack dress shirt but then it must tick all the following boxes in terms of it otherwise there is no point wearing an ill fitted shirt

blog-innerimg2

You should have 2 finger room on the neck when the collar is buttoned up

Cuff should be tight enough around the wrist and one must unbutton cuffs to slip them off

Must fit you well on your shoulder

Should fit you well on chest and waist, there should be no more than 2 inches of fabric excess

Since readymade shirts are made to fit many, as a result they fit no one perfectly. Your wedding is the biggest day of your life and we cannot emphasize on how important it is to have a dress shirt tailor made to your measurements on this special occasion.
In terms of styling a tuxedo shirt has certain distinctive that set them apart from regular shirts –

Collar – There are 3 basic types of shirt collars to be worn with a tuxedo

  • Wing Collar – Wing collar resembles 2 wings, hence the name. Wing collar works very well with Bow ties but any tie is acceptable.
  • Turndown Collar – One of the most common collar style for formal wear and wedding suits
  • Mandarin Collar – This collar stands again neck and has no points.

blog-innerimg2Cuff – Tuxedo shirts usually come with double cuff, also known as French cuffs.

Pleated Front – Another important feature of tuxedo shirt would be the pleating or pin tucking detail on the front. With Tailor made shirts you will have an option of deciding the width of the pleats – you can choose to have half inch pleats or quarter inch pleats it’s your choice!
If you do not want the pleating details you can choose to have a plain shirt with black studs on placket instead of white buttons.

Color – Tuxedo shirts only come in white.

When buying a tuxedo shirt it is important that you buy it in 100% pure Egyptian cotton so it is breathable and comfortable as cotton absorbs sweat effectively.

Bentex Suits did a fantastic job designing & tailoring an amazing suit for my wedding day. I was so happy with the outcome and felt really good on the day. I wanted to go for a vintage look & feel and they totally nailed the brief! I had so many comments from just about everyone saying how dapper I looked and after receiving our photos from the day, I’ve really been able to see how nice the suit looked! I'd recommend Roshni & the team to anyone looking to get a suit tailored.

If you prefer quality tailoring or, like me, if you need it - I strongly recommend Bentex Suits.

I would highly recommend Bentex Suits to anyone looking for quality tailored clothing. I have struggled for years to find suits and shirts that fit me properly (given my tall & slim build) - not anymore! Ajay and Roshni are both very knowledgable, the variety of available fabrics is vast and no request is too challenging. I have 2 suits/12 shirts and will certainly be returning again. Well done Bentex!

This was our first stop for a Bridal Party 6 suits in total!We booked in and were given all the knowledge of a suit and it's materials... The options are endless! But we were professionally steered in the right direction after sitting down with Bentex we were armed with all the knowledge! We shopped around after seeing Bentex but were not treated as well or given the same options with the suit designs and always limited fabrics! All in all we wasted our time going back to other shops and came straight back to Bentex the final fitting was a breeze and the wedding was fabulous!Thank you so much Bentex!

Roshni & Ajay were absolutely fantastic in all ways possible. They assisted with the selection of the suit including the syle and colour. They ensured that the trials and delivery was on time and above all the suits looked absolutely amazing! Would never go anywhere to stich suits anymore
