So for guys, the ticket is usually “dress to impress”. And while your date is likely to be impressed enough if you show up for date night in a dinner jacket or sport coat alone, nothing says “well put-together man” like a full suit. If you want to really up the wow factor, Opposuits has the suits that deliver. With all the fashion sense of a modern slim cut men's suit, they utilize outlandish graphic designs and bold colors that are sure to make any guy stand out! Try our Mr. Lover Heart suit to wear your heart on your sleeve (literally). If graphic hearts aren't quite your jam, we have bold pink and red Opposuits that will let you coordinate with your partner, with the décor, or even with that bouquet of flowers. You did remember to order the flowers, right?


Tuxedo style from the ballroom to the...track?

Our exclusive Bright Colored Tuxedos have red and pink versions that come in just the right hue. If you envy tuxedo style but aren't quite ready to go that formal (no judgment!), we are also proud to offer the most modern dress-down style ever invented: the Traxedo! With classic tux details printed on the zip-up jacket, and even a velcro-on bowtie, these comfy suits are perfect for when date night is a night in, or for gym dates – if that's your thing!

Jason Mattick

Jason is a copywriter at and he usually likes to pick a costume from the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros or from the Star Wars universe. Last year he was Daenerys Targaryen, and this year he'd very much like to be an AT-ST Walker (to finally get some revenge on those Ewoks). When he's not rewatching Game of Thrones or obsessing over canonical points in the new Star Wars flicks, he enjoys going to concerts, politicking, and rambling through remote forested regions of the country in search of Bigfoot.
