The New Black Tuxedo Jacket.
Brocade, Slim Fit, Shaw Lapel Side Vent, Tuxedo Damask Jacket.
Just like it sounds, Slim Fit is fitted closer to the body, without excess fabric. That doesn’t mean it fits like a superhero bodysuit; Slim Fit can be worn by a lot of different body type
The Shawl Lapel is almost exclusively seen on tuxedos and dinner jackets, at weddings and black-tie events. A Shawl Lapel on a jacket adds graceful lines. If you’re looking at a jacket with a Shawl Lapel, likely it is formalwear, or it is seriously fashion-forward.
Side Vents let you put your hands in your pants pockets without the jacket bunching up and allow the jacket to lie smoothly in the back when seated. Side Vents can also make a jacket appear slimmer.
