 I have a SuitSupply tuxedo, and for the money, I thought it was an excellent deal. It was a little over $500. Remember, you'll need alterations, so expect to pay a little more than the rack price.
Thank you all for your input.    Now what about a top hat? Any suggestions in New York City where I might find one, or should I wait until I return to London?
Well... I did not consider a was completely wrong. Interesting, my instincts were in the right place, I just didn't manage to come up with the correct answer on my own.I don't find the Kemptons on the C&J website, but they are precisely what I'm looking for. Are they an older model, if so, do you know of anyone else that makes an equivalent?
I've been searching through the forum for appropriate footwear for a morning suit that I'll be wearing at my wedding. The morning suit is very traditional and has a black jacket, grey trouser. I own opera pumps, but they seem to be a little too "fun" or casual for the morning suit ( I can't quite put my finger on it, but they just don't go together in my mind, something about the bow and the low vamp).    I think I would like a patent leather formal pump, but with no...
Hey everyone. I'm getting married next year in NYC in May. The wedding is at 11am, and I'm very interested in wearing a bespoke morning dress rig. I'm willing to travel to London or anywhere in Europe to have one made.   Does anyone have a suggestion of a tailor that can handle something like this? Pictures of their work or additional info is greatly appreciated.    I'm also willing to hear any other suggestions or comments, if you're interested in sharing.
    I tried this Armani jacket on a few months ago but didn't purchase it. It was such an interesting take a sport coat I've been kicking myself ever since. Anyone know where I can find one for sale? I've looked online at the Armani store, but it's gone. Here is a Tweet by Armani with more info: https://twitter.com/armani/status/431425278879887362.
Does anyone know if the 511's are similar in size in the waist/thighs? I like the 514s up top but I find that the bottom of the leg opening is a bit big for my summer footwear. If anyone has any other ideas on how to address this, I'm all ears.
Pretty nice, and at a decent price. Thanks!
 Where did you find your vintage studs? Yes, I am 90% certain I need 4 studs, not just 3, which is making my purchase of a vintage set of studs difficult. I saw those octagonal onyx ones, but I thought just a little flash wouldn't hurt at this particular occasion.  And yes, a self tie bow tie. I'm not sure why anyone bothers with the pre tied version, it's so easy to tie. Last year I attended a wedding in Istanbul where I was the only person who knew how to tie a bow tie....
  Not yet, I'm awaiting it's arrival. It's the Brooks Brothers slim fit ten pleat shirt. And the cummberbun from them as well.  http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Slim-Fit-Ten-Pleat-Wing-Collar-Formal-Tuxedo-Shirt/376Q,default,pd.html?dwvar_376Q_Color=WHIT&contentpos=19&cgid=0235 http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Four-Pleat-Cummerbund/135I,default,pd.html?dwvar_135I_Color=BLCK&contentpos=11&cgid=0235 The slim fit brooks brothers shirt fit me very well, so that's why I went with...
