These examples illustrate some suggestions for lighting layouts in suit jackets, blazers, and tuxedos. Casual jackets and coats are discused on another page. We can install lights on a suit that you send to us, or we can supply the whole thing (at additional cost). The prices below refer to the cost of the lighting, not including the base garment.
The lighting can be adapted for other collar styles and lengths, including tuxedo jackets with tails.
The lights in these designs can be animated with custom twinkling patterns (including a steady glowing effect as one of the options). The connecting wires will be concealed inside the lining of the suit.
|suit example #1a|
|25 individually mounted LEDs on collar, 10 on each cuff,
can display multiple flashing patterns
45 lights total, $675
|steady glowing lights||sequential pattern with fade|
|fast flashing||slow twinkling pattern|
Examples of past projects that involve individually mounted LEDs:
up to 50 LEDs (<$750 worth of lighting)
300-500 individually mounted LEDs ($3000+)
For designs that require closely-spaced lights arranged in lines or clusters, with a steady glowing effect, the illumination can be also created with miniature strings of LEDs. This type of lighting is more fragile than individually mounted LEDs, however, and may not be recommended for some applications (like costumes for dancers).
Examples of past projects that involve LED outlines on suits:
Designs with uniform lines of light can be created with EL wire. If you want a durable garment that can be folded, we recommend limiting the EL wire to areas that do not flex much, like the collar and cuffs. We can cover the whole garment with stripes, although the result will be extremely delicate, and will require special care and handling.

We've installed logos and text on a variety of suit jackets. Please see the guidelines on our lighted logos and text pages for more information about pricing for that part, or follow the links below for additional images from these past projects.
