When the lovebitten ladyfolk of the world picture their fairy-tale weddings—all harpsichord strumming, rolling hills to the coast, and assorted sparkle magic of the like—most of the time, they're ALSO picturing themselves swaddled in the exquisite bridal garb of Miss Vera Wang. After years of being that go-to dream gown designer, Wang is finally showing the dudes some love with Black by Vera Wang. The tuxedo rental collection is part of an exclusive partnership Wang has just announced with The Men's Wearhouse, to provide all the grooms out there with the same keen and loving design eye afforded to so many ladies on their special day. While this is all very exciting in and of itself, what sparks OUR specific interest here is that, according to Fashionista Vera Wang's tuxes are expected to be made by Flow Formal Wear. If the name seems familiar, it's because it is. Flow is the very same company to manufacture our boy, The Situation's line of self-promoted penguin suits.
When the news broke that The Situation would be endorsing a line of tuxedos for FLOW Formal Wear earlier this summer, we knew it would be just a matter of time before we FINALLY saw the Jersey Shore star sporting a tux. (We've never seen him in one before! I mean, with those abs why bother even wearing a shirt, right?!) Well friends, that time has come. FLOW Formal is slowlyyyyy rolling out photos of Mike modeling the new line (appropriately) called "The Situation," which features two solid tuxes in black and white and a gray vest. The Situation shows that a tuxedo can be worn in a variety of ways by pairing just the jacket with a V-neck tee and jeans or by going all out in a three-piece ensemble complete with a matching paisley tie (and lady friend). So, what does The Situation think about repping a tux line? He told In Touch, "They approached me because I'm a trendsetter. DTF has a new meaning: Down to Formal! I'm really excited to show a classier, more sophisticated side of myself." Aww, SITCHHH. Check out more photos from his photo shoot below!

Jersey Shore's own shirtless majesty The Situation reportedly will endorse a line of tuxedos for New York-based manufacturer Flow Formal worth *gasp* six figures. YOWZA! While we've PERSONALLY never seen The Sitch in a tuxedo (not like we're mad about him always flashing his bajillion-pack abs), Flow Formal's CEO Brian Weintraub says he chose the Shore star because he is "the perfect spokesperson...the company is trying to target a younger demographic." The line will be named—drum roll—"The Situation" and will include tuxes (obvi), slim-fit shirts, and accessories. But still, the most pressing question remains—will he pair these tuxes with his own bedazzled Luxury Laces? I mean, they are luxury after all. GIT ITTTTTT.
+ DON'T FORGET TO TUNE IN TO THE SEASON PREMIERE OF "JERSEY SHORE" ON AUG. 4 AT 10 P.M. ET.
