In the past few years the most popular tuxedo rentals for prom included a black shirts, long ties and many three button tuxedo coats. A different look is emerging in 2012. It almost appears to be a return to a more traditional and elegant look.
Thus far in 2012, we are seeing many prom goers renting black single breasted shawl collar tuxedos and bow ties... Bow ties! In some areas we've seen as many as one third of the rentals with a bow tie instead of a long tie. In recent years the long formal tie was over 90%!
Many of the prom goers are still sticking with a lay down collar shirt rather than the traditional wing collar, but I'd be willing to bet we will see a significant rise in the wing collar shirts again soon.
Have fun at your prom!
