Incorporating a Camo Tux into Your Dream Wedding

You did it! The majority of your dream wedding’s details are set. The venue, florist and caterer are booked. Your perfect dress is on order. You’ve even managed to whittle your guest list into a manageable amount. There’s just one big thing to consider…Tux Rental!

It’s the perfect time to get your groom’s opinion, so he feels like he’s a part of the decision making process, right? That’s right… up until the point that he drops the proverbial bomb:  “I want to wear a camo wedding tux.” (Insert gasp here.)  It’s OK; don’t worry. We can incorporate his camo dream into your wedding with class.

The Camouflage Tuxedo by Jim’s Formal Wear combines just the right amount of outdoorsman with a truly classic tuxedo look. The camouflage lapel coupled with the black tux will show off your man’s style without your guests questioning which tree he just climbed down.

Select a more traditional black vest and bow tie for the ceremony, and let him and his groomsmen go all out with a Mossy Oak camo tux vest or camouflage tie at the reception.  We even offer white camo tie and vest styles for the groom.

And speaking of those camo vests, the Camouflage Fullback Vest is tailored of the same fabric found on the lapel of our Camo Tux. It makes a great addition to your camouflage ensemble. We wrote a blog article about its popularity here.

The Undeniable Popularity of our Camouflage Fullback Vest

I can still remember a corporate buying seminar from a few short years ago when our company decided to purchase and add a camouflage vest to our formalwear line. All of our management teams are involved in the decision making process and the seminar is a big event for us. At the time, it was easy to choose tuxedos and colorful vests to add to our lineup as we keep pretty good tabs on what our customers are asking for. However, some of us were hesitant to cast our votes for a camouflage vest.

We asked ourselves, “Is this look even considered formal? Does it belong with a tuxedo? Are people going to wear it?” Well, a few years later, we have now come to the conclusion we shouldn’t have hesitated at all because our camouflage vest has turned out to be very popular with our retailers and end-consumers!

The first camouflage vest added to our formalwear line was a forest green pattern which is available and shown here with a matching Windsor tie and pocket square.

At that seminar, we decided to offer a vest in a green camouflage pattern by Mossy Oak. It is available with a matching Windsor tie, bow tie and a coordinating pocket square.

How Wedding Couples Incorporate a Camo Vest into their Wedding Day
The vest became quite popular with wedding couples who were planning camouflage or hunting-themed weddings. We found some couples will rent a more traditional fullback vest pattern in a specific color to match their wedding’s theme and then also rent the camouflage fullback vest for the guys to wear to the evening’s reception.

And for proms and homecomings, the camouflage fullback vest is also popular. It’s worn by young gentleman who likely consider hunting as one of their hobbies and are looking for a very unique look for their prom tuxedo.

A Second Camouflage Vest is Added
Fast-forward to today and we have added a new camouflage fullback vest pattern in white, also with a matching Windsor tie or bow tie and a coordinating pocket square.

When a camouflage-themed wedding is being planned, we are expecting the white camo vest may be chosen for the groom while the green camo may be worn by the groomsmen. We’re anxious to see how creative our retailers and consumers get with this pair of unique vests…

The popularity of the camouflage vest in our accessory line reminds us of something very important: A wedding is a very personal event for a bride and groom and the attire worn during that day should reflect their personal tastes whether their attire is ultra-formal or not. It is our goal to have the tuxedos and accessories they want!
