New Coats and Accessories Added to Jim’s Formal Wear Line

We are excited to show you the Tuxedos and Accessories recently added to our Formalwear line for Spring of 2014…

The Stephen Geoffrey Slate Blue Aspen Slim Fit Tuxedo
First up is the new Slate Blue Aspen, a tuxedo certain to turn heads because of its slim fit cut and beautiful color. The new Slate Blue Aspen is a tuxedo coat and matching pants tailored similarly to our very popular Stephen Geoffrey Gray Aspen Tuxedo  - which means it, like all of our slim fit styles, is a tux many men can wear and look great in. Plus, the slate blue fabric is exquisite in person and makes the tuxedo beautiful and rich in appearance. Our photography is great for this style, but it is a stunner when viewed first hand, trust me!

Flattering in appearance and cut, the Slate Blue Aspen is tailored in a beautiful fabric.

The Slate Blue Aspen looks very good when paired with pastel colored fullback vests. However, if you want to go for a more conservative 3-piece tuxedo look at your wedding, a matching fullback vest is available to match the Slate Blue Aspen:

For a true 3-piece look, you can wear the Slate Blue Aspen with a companion fullback vest.

The Camo Tux
And now for something completely different… The second new tuxedo we have added to our formalwear line is the Camo Tux. Camouflage is hot right now and so are camo-themed and rustic weddings. Having a tuxedo style to offer to the bride and groom who are planning this type of affair was a goal of ours for Spring of 2014.

When we conceived this style and worked with a manufacturer to produce it, we wanted the camo pattern to be somewhat subtle. We think we nailed it and created a tux with a classy use of the Mossy Oak camo pattern on the notch lapels and pocket trim.

Herringbone and Expressions Vests – Because Color Matters!
Your wedding is a special day and we know you want everything to be perfect. Presenting a wonderful, well thought out theme for your guests is important and therefore your color matters. You can always count on your Jim’s Formal Wear Retailer to have the right colors to complement your affair through your gentlemen’s tuxedos.

Diligent research into the trendiest wedding colors for the season was performed by our marketing and merchandising teams. We do this annually and incorporated the findings into our color selections for two Fullback Vest and Tie Collections for Spring 2014…

The Expressions Fullback Vest and Tie Collection comes in 27 solid colors and you can complement any Expressions vest you choose with a Solid Windsor Tie, a Striped Windsor Tie or a Bow Tie.

The Expressions Fullback Vest Program is available in 27 solid colors with windsor and bow ties to match.

You’ll also like the fact that the Expressions fullback vests are tailored with a matching back which makes the gentlemen in your wedding reflect your color even when they have the tuxedo jackets removed.

The Herringbone Fullback Vest and Tie Collection has also proven to be very popular with our nationwide network of retailers and their wedding customers. Therefore, the addition of a number of new colors seemed very appropriate for Spring of 2014.

The Herringbone Fullback Vest and Tie collection is available in 42 colors – one of our bigger color palettes.

We have added 20 new colors to the Herringbone Fullback Vest collection which brings the total number of color choices up to 42. Forty-two colors… you’ll find your color in this collection!

The Finishing Touch for your Gray Tuxedo: The Gray Allegro Formal Shoe
Lastly, gray tuxedos continue to be very popular for weddings and we offer a number of gray tuxedo styles including the Gray Aspen Tuxedo and the Gray Portofino Tuxedo.

However, we have received some requests for a gray formal shoe to complement those styles – in lieu of a gentleman having to wear a black shoe. Therefore, we’re happy to offer the Gray Allegro formal shoe. Both gray and black tuxedo shoes are appropriate with a gray tuxedo, it’s your decision.

Herringbone Fullback Vests: Make Your Wedding Colorful!

Choosing the color palette for your wedding is a very important first step in the planning process. After all, the bridesmaid dress colors, the flowers, the decorations, the invitations and all the details match and are reflective of your color and theme. This, of course, also includes the tuxedo accessories worn by your groom and his gentlemen!

We understand. It’s a great experience to attend a beautiful, well-coordinated, well-planned wedding.  And it matters to us and to our nationwide network of retailers that you want those colors to coordinate. So, when it comes to selecting the most popular colors for our newest vest program, we are very careful to be aware of the hottest and trendiest colors.

Speaking of, our newest fullback vest program is Herringbone, developed under our private designer label, Stephen Geoffrey.

Shown here in the color Malibu and with a bow tie, the Herringbone Fullback Vest Collection is the newest addition to our accessory lineup.

Our Herringbone Vest Collection is available in 22 carefully selected colors. Each fullback vest may be worn with one of three coordinating ties: a Bow Tie, a Solid Windsor Tie, and a Striped Windsor Tie.

One of the neatest features about Herringbone is the coordinating, colorful back of the vest. Love your color? Well, should your gentlemen decide to remove their jacket during the reception, they will look fantastic draped in your wedding’s color!

All Herringbone Fullback Vests are tailored with a colorful, coordinating back which doubles the color!

Much emphasis is placed on the color accuracy of each vest. Brett Bircher, the National Director of Dealer Relations for Jim’s Formal Wear, spends countless hours with our vest manufacturer going back and forth on each swatch strike off. Swatches of the popular bridal (and prom) dress colors for the forthcoming season are gathered and comparisons are made. Our chosen manufacturer for the Herringbone Collection is Larr Brio and they are incredibly responsive to our requests.

Who benefits from all of this effort? Jim’s Formal Wear does because we add colors to our line that are chosen for popularity. A Jim’s Formal Wear Retailer benefits as well, because they can have offer the colors their customer is looking for. But ultimately, the group that benefits the most is the bridal couple, who is our main focus throughout the entire process. With Herringbone, you’re going to find a color for the gentlemen to tie your entire event together!
