Italian Tuxedos: The Perfect Fit

The tuxedo is synonymous with masculine elegance. Minimal in design but of sure impact, it is the most refined ensemble in menswear, a classic and essential combination that every man should have in his closet. Tuxedos for women are a recent enhancement of the tuxedo line, softened in shape and varied in colors. Made iconic thanks to 007 agent James Bond and his British charm, the contemporary tuxedo is versatile and practical for ceremonies and important events and also appropriate for other occasions in professional life. From the most refined and traditional models to more sporty and modern versions, here is a short selection of the tuxedo, Italian style.

Giorgio Armani

The Armani tuxedo is created specifically for those occasions calling for a formal dress code or when you simply want to stand out with elegance in a garment of absolute class and quality, sewn with care and impeccable style. Leonardo Di Caprio bore testimony to his taste when wearing an Armani tuxedo at the Oscars in 2016, where he won his first Academy Award. After all, sartorial wisdom is the heart of the Armani Maison and is characterized by special attention to the choice of the most refined materials and an impeccable cut: Cashmere, fresh wool, Prince of Wales, silk blend, and pinstripe, combined with a slim fit, always allow you to get the perfect style. Satin and velvet add an additional, unique effect.

Tuxedo colors, refined textures, and precise details are this eveningwear’s common denominators on the occasion of ceremonies and special events. Linear and rigorous in cut, Emporio Armani presents a tailored suit in classic total-black. The jacket is single-breasted, slightly shaped at the waist, with a single button closure, while the trousers are wide and straight.


How can you not fall in love with the super-elegant Black & Midnight Blue combination? Worn with “sprezzatura”, or a certain nonchalance, by Ryan Gosling at the Cannes Film Festival première of The Nice Guys, Gucci fabrics are decadent, and being photographed in this iconic tuxedo will feel like a dream come true. 

Ermenegildo Zegna

A few steps separate Zegna’s luxury leisurewear, which reimagines contemporary wardrobe staples with comfort and functionality at the core, to the brand’s stunning nightwear suits. Formed in 1910 by  Ermenegildo Zegna in Trivero, Biella, in the Piedmont region of northern Italy, Zegna’s tuxedos are the most Italian classic you can get in an elegant outfit. Traditional but evergreen models, men are lucky enough to wear tailor-made gems, created by expert artisans belonging to a family of Italian tailors that consistently delivers on its exceptional promise. Every suit embodies the pinnacle of craftsmanship and creative expression, helping each man who gets tailored by a professional, look and feel like they are a star walking the red carpet or stepping into a luxurious ballroom. 

Dolce & Gabbana

Two prodigies of the Italian fashion system and now international icons, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have always created clothes of rupture. That's why the most exceptional and provocative music, movie, and sports stars have dressed in their incredible and original handmade creations, such as Leo Messi, seven-time Ballon d'Or winner, who wore a Dolce & Gabbana tux in 2013 at the prestigious world soccer award night. The jacket and bow tie featured the traditional Maison's white spots, and his tuxedo, with the evocative name of Sicilia, aroused interest and controversy among the purists of the classic tuxedo. But, as everyone knows, fashion without innovation would not be fashion.

Sartoria 74

The tuxedo is the most desirable evening dress ever, in black, white, or any color. Black, inevitable in a self-respecting wardrobe; white, that looks so very 40s Marlene Dietrich; and the fun and irreverent colorful tuxedo. Haute couture, luxury, and elegance define the Sartoria 74, a fashion brand founded in Giugliano, close to Naples, by Francesca Ciccarelli, a premier young entrepreneur. Daughter of the Neapolitan tailoring tradition, she has conquered the world. Sartoria 74 can offer everything you are looking for, and, above all, attention to cutting: the sartorial quality declined in the prêt-à-porter creation.

Precious fabrics, stylistic research, imagination, creativity, and vision, but also the courage to meet new challenges of the market have led Francesca to make the leap in ready-to-wear. Her women’s tuxedos are simply gorgeous: sexy, chic, unique.
