According to WWD, President-elect Barack Obama is scheduled to wear a Hart Schaffner Marx single-button, notch-lapel tuxedo for the 2009 Inaugural evening events. But that didn’t stop other noted designers from sharing their sketches.

So many of them are quite elegant, yet incredibly stylish and hip. And they would make great options for any groom’s formal wedding wear.

The slideshow of designer sketches can be found here, but I noted a few of my favorites below.
