The New Women’s Tuxedo

Formalwear is one of our specialties.

And although you may have seen some women’s tuxedos on the market, you haven’t seen any like this.

Why are our tuxedos unique?

Because each one is designed in collaboration with a client—-and every client is unique.

Some of the pieces incorporate wedding colors.

Some are super formal—-and others are super fun.

Some have a bit of a punk rock look—-and others are totally bridal.

In the end, the best look depends on the personality of the lady who wears it—-and the event that she is wearing it to.

We always love the idea of adding a bit of color—-even to our wedding gowns.

 

A touch of purple or gold or red can really make a look unique.

Or combine traditionally masculine and feminine details for a look that is totally yours.

Combining traditional menswear wool suitings with amazing silk brocades and satins can give the pieces a really formal touch.

We always can get tens of thousands of fabrics.  And can make virtually any details.

We work with clients all over the world every day.

For fit, we mail the clients “muslins”—-cotton mock-ups that you can try on and provide feedback on the style and look.

This insures a totally custom look via long distance.

Contact us and we can work on some sketches and designs for you.

 

Lesbian Wedding Suit Gallery (pt1)

Lesbian Wedding TuxedoWe make suits for hundreds of lesbian weddings every year.

Each of them is a awesome event and an amazing chance for us to show off our best tailoring techniques.

The pics show one of our favorite suits of 2014.

This tux was made from a soft crepe.

Crepe has a gorgeous “vintage” look with a very subtle matte/sheen.  The texture of the fabric is somewhat “pebbled” rather than smooth.  The French pancakes are actually named for the fabric.

This fabric contrasts beautifully with the ultra smooth face of the “blush” satin we used for the lapels, pockets, and tuxedo stripe.

For the style, we chose a shawl collar style.  This rounded collar is one of the classic menswear details and is found extensively on classic tuxedos.  But here, it takes on a more feminine appearance and keeps the look from feeling harsh.Lesbian Wedding Tuxedos

The pants are classic tapered leg tuxedo pants and feature a traditional tuxedo stripe.

We make custom suits for women all across the world each year—-most of our suits are for ladies who are not able to make the trip to come in for a fitting in person here in our studio in Denver Colorado.

To get the best fit, we use our muslin fitting method—-where we actually mail you a mock-up of the whole suit to try on before cutting the actual suit.

So if you are planning a wedding, contact us (superhero@vigilantelabs.com) and let us sketch something for you!
