Sets the mood brilliantly
You don't wear a tux every day, at least I don't. This hence isn't an app you whip out to kill a 20 min leg of a commute. This you sit down for in a comfy chair, taking in everything it has to offer for that big event coming up. Lets face it, for most wearing a tux is a special event, and this app gets you in the mood. It certainly gets me fantasising about the occasion to come, what style items I already have and what I should consider to get to finish off the look I'm hoping to pull off. For me it's more inspirational, motivational and just plain cool rather than it is instructional or a catalogue to buy from. The Tux app will hopefully help get me over those initial nerves when you pull on the ensemble, give me confidence when the expectations are so high.
I like it, cool app to use once or twice a year, especially in the run up to the holiday season when evening wear can make or break the occasion.
Now one specifically for weddings please as I'm at that age where everybody seems to get married all of a sudden.
Technical good but from a clothes point of view disappointing
The Mr Porter website is a great resourced on what is going on in men's fashion, However an instructional app should be trying to foster good taste and the correct way to dress. This app does neither. Apart from the instructional guides which are interesting but not thought through, for example tying a bow tie needs to be done from the other direction not face on unless this guide is intended for one's partners.
The clothes highlighted as examples are not correctly formed and for example in evening wear, fashion should not really get a look in as the wearer of black tie wearing fashion never looks right and as an example should never be followed.
In all a missed opportunity. Also this app is very large in data size and I'm not really sure why as the content is not so large as to justify it.
Hopefully future versions of the app will be smaller. I don't mind featuring fashion, but this should never be mixed we traditional wear.
I can't tell anyone enough, how pretentious and pathetic this app is i thought that perhaps, it would give me some insight into, the different fabrics a tuxedo consists of. Maybe even why they cost so much to buy? No instead it gave me 1.4GB of men getting dressed, contentious video footage and high priced links to high end fashion sites. Pinterest does that and its free. The thing about this app that most annoys me is that it is huge in size weak on delivery and has appeared, right around the release of the 007 film. Not worth it 1000 sites will give you the same info without the long delays in getting on with your life.
