What is the difference between a tux and a suit?

What is the difference between a tux and a suit?

So Aaron and I are trying to figure out what we would like our groomsmen to wear for the wedding. I know we want a black pants, jacket and white shirt but do we do a black suit or a tux? And for real, what the heck is the difference between a tux and a suit? We certainly are trying to figure that out so I figured I’d like y’all know what we have found!

So the main difference that we have found is the lapel. On a tux the lapels of the jackets are a different fabric / texture than the rest of the jacket. On a suit, it’s all the same material! Tux pants also have a stripe down the side of the leg with the secondary material (same material as the lapels).

Bam! So now ya know :) Which do you prefer?

I loved that they were helping men bring their special question to life. After graduation, I finally had the opportunity to become a “Yes Girl”. I couldn’t ask for a more exciting job & I’m so blessed to be a part of this company.
