When it’s time to break out the formal wear, ladies will spend hours learning the current trends, finding the hottest colors, and trying on the most stylish cuts. On the other end of the spectrum, many men think that all tuxedoes are the same: basic, black and boring. But, like all areas of fashion, trends in men’s formal wear change over time.
