SUIT STYLE AND CHARACTERISTICS

Select the style from the various photos on the web page. The Zoot Suit and the Oxford Suit can be sewn as tuxedo style. The tuxedo design changes the collar and lapels to satin with satin pocket flaps. The satin can be a contrasting color. (Refer to the red tuxedo suits with black collar and lapels.) Tuxedo braid can be added down the outseam of the trousers also.
