Believe it or not, when it comes to choosing your wedding tuxedos Southern Wisconsin, the shirt you wear with it will play a big role in determining which type of tux you ultimately choose. Below are the 3 most popular types of shirts to pair with tuxes; and their features to help you choose which style you like best.

Down collar tuxedo shirts
This type of shirt, also called a laydown collar shirt, does just that – it lays down over the collar. Very similar to a standard button-down dress shirt, the entire collar of this shirt folds down and out around the neck, leaving only the knot and the bow of the tie exposed.

Winged-tip tuxedo shirts
When you wear a winged-tip shirt, you’re wearing a real piece of true luxury mens clothing! These shirts are super formal, and have a very Victorian feel to them. Lying flat against the neck, they show almost the entire tie; and they can be worn with either a bow tie or a neck tie. At the front, they have the tips that make them famous – little bent corners that create the look of wings.

Mandarin tuxedo shirts
When you just don’t want to wear a tie but still need to look sharp, Mandarin shirts are the way to go. These shirts are still very formal, but have narrow collars that stand straight up and button in the front. A decorative button can be used to cover the top button; but no bow tie or neck tie is needed.
