Tuxedo

Tuxedos have satin details like satin-faced lapels, satin buttons. Its accessories are cummerbund, waistcoat, self-tied bowtie, etc. These are worn with only white shirts with a wing collar or turndown collar. People can wear tuxedos with black shoes for evening events. Generally, tuxedos are costlier than suits.

Suit

The jacket, lapel and pants of the suit are of the same material. And suits generally have plastic or fabric-covered buttons instead of satin buttons. Suits are quite versatile than tuxedos. They go well with both bowtie and long tie. You can wear a suit with different types of shirts in different colours and patterns. And they can be worn anytime for any occasion like formal meetings, dates, wedding, etc. Basically, suits are up for both formal and informal events. And you can wear a suit with loafers or slip-on shoes as well. You generally pay less for suits than you pay for a tuxedo.
