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!

Women’s Tailcoats and Tuxes—For Lesbian Weddings and Formal Events

Lesbian Wedding TuxdeoHere are some recent pics from our latest photo shoot.

We wanted to design a perfect women’s tuxedo—that looked good on every body type—-and this is the result.Lesbian Wedding Tuxedo

The cropped jackets end at the narrowest part of the waist—and we tailor each jacket individually to get this just right for each individual client.

The cummerbunds (which can be made with or without pleats) are fully-boned like a corset to gently shape the body and smooth out the silhouette.Lesbian Wedding Tailcoat

Finally, the higher waisted pants with the cropped jacket shape lengthens the body and the legs.

Lesbian Wedding TuxedoWe can do many different fits and leg shapes for the pant—wide leg and bootcut pants look great with this style as well.

The version pictured is an ultra slim pant with a tuxedo stripe and a cropped length.Lesbian Wedding Tuxedo

As with each of our designs, you can adjust any detail.  Change the collar shape—the shape of the points—the buttons.  We offer these pieces in hundreds of fabrics as well.  So we are sure to have a fabric that you like.
