It is hard sometimes to distinguish a tuxedo and a suit. The most noticeable difference between a tuxedo and a suit is the fabric on the lapel part and the lining. The lapel on a tuxedo uses satin (the shiny looking fabric) while the lapel on a suit uses the same fabric as the rest.

Here are some photos to help distinguish between a Tux and a Suit:
