Few things in life are as timeless as a tuxedo.
The classic black tuxes Sean Connery sported in the 1960s James Bond movies would be perfectly appropriate on a 2013 groom. But there are always stylistic variations from year to year. Lapels get wider and narrower. Single breasted and double breasted jackets alternate in popularity. Every season brings a hot new color. (Gray is in this fall). Here's a sampling of some popular fall tuxedo fashions that can be found in southern New Jersey formal wear shops:
