That classic black and white image envisioned when you hear the word ‘tuxedo’, is far from the only style; many now incorporate modern styles, trends, and colours. With tuxedos breaking away from tradition, it can be tough to tell the difference from a suit.
There are two key differences between a suit and tuxedo. The first has to do with physical appearance, the second has to do with the embodiment, the perception, that comes with a tuxedo. Check out the list below for a closer look - we've even included a chart for quick reference!

Make sure you spice up your tux with accessories to show off your personality. Subtle finishing touches like fun socks, cuff links, or a tie can easily display your style! Read here for more tips on putting a modern twist on the classic look.
A suit allows for a certain amount of variety - it can be casual, semi-casual, or even formal. A suit can be worn with dress pants or jeans, leather shoes or runners. You can wear a coloured or patterened button-up shirt under the jacket and a tie isn't required. But what about a tuxedo? They've evolved from classic black and white to incorporate modern trends, but there are still certain necessary components to the tuxedo that you may see as limiting your style.
We have good news! That's not the case. There are lots of different accessories that allow you show of your personality. We've compiled a brief list of these elements below.
1. CUFF LINKS
What? Cuff links? Yes, cuff links! Get your favourite sports team, your favourite colour, an interesting pattern, and even script. Pranga & Co is new on the scene – and sold at Collins! They offer patent-pending interchangeable cuff links allowing you to express your style in a similar fashion as a Pandora bracelet can be customized with charms. The Anker – the customizable piece - of the cuff link uses natural elements and nature-inspired designs made from semi-precious stones – jade, granite, marble, wood, glass, and porcelain.
